SORRY.....

OLD TEMPLATES AND FILES
I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to recreate them.

You could make distressed or shabby chic toddler keepsake height charts with tiny spaces for photos and journalling.

I can see why you rescued them, although I wouldn't know what to do with them either!

I wonder whether they would sew together to make a bag or case for knitting/crochet needles?

Sometimes rescued lovelies need to sit for a while before you know what you really want to do. Have fun deciding!

A shop in my town called paperweight used to sell belts and wallets made out of these tape measures sewn together, so when my work got some coloured ones in, I immediately wanted to make some!
