Oh my goodness! I am absolutely in love with this gorgeous twine made out of scrap fabric!
Let’s face it, a lot of us have stashes of scrap fabric left over from projects that we just can’t bear to throw away because they’ll come in handy one day… Well this is that day! Well for me it is anyway lol 😀
I’m super excited about this find on Pinterest! All credit for this one goes to Cintia over at My Poppet! It’s a great way to use up all those oddments of fabric or clothes that no longer have a use.
My head is spinning with great ways I can use this once it’s made up 😀
What you’ll need to make your fabric twine
Scrap fabric cut into strips … maximum 1″ wide
Something to wind your twine onto… I love those big vintage looking bobbins … I found these… (or just cardboard would work fine)
Lots of time… This is quite a time consuming project, but it can easily be done whilst watching tv or on long car journeys (obviously only if you’re a passenger 😀 ) Or on flights.
Below is Cintia’s great video tutorial that shows exactly how simple this fabric twine is to make.
I’m hoping to make enough of this to make a crochet rug 😀
There are so many things you could use this for
Necklaces & Bracelets
Piping on cushions or clothing
Baskets & Bags
Cord for attaching bunting
I’m going to look at ways of speeding the process up a bit too. maybe using some sort of mandrill or a hand drill… Hmmm I’ll have to give this some thought lol … Any ideas would be greatly appreciated 😀 xx
Well that was all pretty simple to do… I just set up my new blog 🙂
It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for soooo long, but there was always other things to do, and I kinda thought it would be a bit harder to set up than it was. But when I actually set aside some time to do it, it was quite straight forward really.
The first thing I did was… Make a cup of tea! In my world, everything starts with a nice cuppa 🙂
I’ve been reading other people’s blogs for so long, and I’ve got to say, I do love a good blog! I’m massively into crafting, so can spend many hours trawling through Pinterest, which then often leads me to another blog full of interesting titbits of information. In my mother’s and grandmother’s generations and generations before them, most crafting skills were passed down the family like valuable heirlooms… But now, we’re all learning new skills because we have so much information available to us at the click of a button. We’re not limited to the crafts that our parents passed on to us. It’s much easier for us to venture out and learn anything that takes our fancy. Buying our crafting supplies has become very easy to do, and we don’t even have to leave the comfort of home if we don’t want to, or haven’t got the ability to. Visual Sense Crafts is a great place to buy affordable craft supplies and hand made gifts, and also my Etsy shop here. Add my Etsy shop to your favorites, as I’ll be adding loads of my original hand crafted items in the next few days 🙂
