I just went down a whole new rabbit hole…wow…and the simple tools used…I can see many new projects here…wow…
Right? I was thinking of you, and of course Laura with your Operation Use Up Yarn project too of course .
Seems like a great way to make cute little accessories for all sorts of things. The end of hat ties, zipper pulls, to finish a sweater tie or put onto the point of a shawl, add fringe to make a tassel, decorate a bag, wreath, hooplah, bunting, garland, ornaments, lamp pull, like I can think of so many things to use those on!
I gave away 3 of my new Operation Use Up Yarn scarves, my hat, and 3 of the beanies from my stash today!
I spent January and February working on this dress. I bought the fabric a couple of years ago. I haven’t hemmed the dress yet because, while I can get it on my body and even zip & button it up, I need to lose some weight for it to really sit right. I’ll hem it and do a proper post then. But I wanted to show that I destashed something!
And then there were 6 Pumpkin Bears!
Love those sleeves.
Wow, your dress looks incredible!
February: I did a Bat Creature for the House spouse. I was able to get her away from him long enough to take some pictures of her.
Oh, so creepy cute. This makes me like bats!
As a nature conservationist, my job is done then. Mission Accomplished!
Those eyes are amazing!
It’s actually the only thing he picked, he had no idea what I was doing, he said they remind him of my eyes.
Eeppp love that nose!
For: Charity. Feel free to post links to your favorite crafty cause in the thread.
Challenge: Unfinished objects. Everybody has them, so don’t feel bad. It could be a project you stalled on half-way through eight years ago, or something you finished last month that just needs threads clipped. Either way, it’s a great feeling to finally finish them up.
I’m pleased with my February crafty achievements. All from stash I did the yoga socks, a baby blanket, a bunch of wee hearts, a bowl, and a Fair Isle hat. Not too bad for someone who was having a hard time getting a wash cloth made up in a month this time last year!
Thanks for the motivation!
Those sleeve details are beautiful!
I have been hesitant to cut into some of my clothing fabrics because I know I have gained weight and won’t want to wear them or fit them properly…I don’t want to be upset if I make something then have to wait months to wear! lol
My doctor gave me four months to lose some weight, and so far in February, I have not! I should put the fabric on a hanger on the fridge…
It’s hard, isn’t it? Good luck to you and me, both!!
