What I did with my mom's duster....

I had planned on make teddy bears with my mom's dusters for the 3 siblings that are left but just couldn't get started on the project. Today, I was working on pillowcases and a thought ran through my mind.....this is the result:

I kept as much of it intact as I could, sewing down where the grippers were and keeping the pockets on. The fabric for the cuff was taken from one of her silky nylon dresses she used to wear all the time. I had to use interfacing on it because of it being so flimsy. Plan to make a couple more and then see what is left of the fabric.

Thanks, Maggie. I emailed my brother the picture and he was pleased that he would get one. My sister hasn't responded but I know she'll recognize the fabric as mom lived with her family for the last 4/5 years of her life.

Nice idea, Sharon. How many do you have? Looks like they would make nice aprons too.

Thanks, Beverly, I only have 2 more dusters. The dress fabric is more difficult to work with and, of course, there are more of those.

You are so creative Sharon! They will be treasured by those that receive them. I also think aprons are another great idea.
