the craft stash is being cleared out, bit by bit.
i found a bag of fake flowers in one of my bins. some were pulled apart, some still intact.
so i spent a little time stacking different petals atop one another.
roses and daisies and sunflowers and carnations…
it was like putting together a couple of jigsaw puzzles.
a couple of buttons for each – one on top to hold the petals in place, and one big ‘un on the bottom. plus a safety pin, for, uh, pinning to a shirt or jacket or purse or headband.
also pulled from the stash: a denim block, left over from one of my rug-making projects.
now, it’s a (very sturdy!) potholder.
the bias tape is leftover from another project, too. and when i pulled it out, i noticed i didn’t have a lot of bias tape left in the stash. so i made more, using (what else?) fabric i had on hand.
i cut 2″ strips to make 1″ tape. i think i like the plaid one the best. and since i need some more potholders to replace the old stained/burned/ torn ones, it should be used up pretty quickly!
