It has been so long since I've sewn anything. Once summer gets here, I am so busy with my flowers that the sewing takes a back seat.
I still have not made anything, but I am in the process. A long time ago I read about making a unique piece of fabric by sewing a bunch of scraps in the middle of a long piece of fabric. Like this:
I just picked out pieces of fabric that I thought went with the bold blue/green/yellow fabric that you seen on the right end. Layer until you have a fairly even thickness - I did about 4 layers of scraps.
Then I folded the end piece over and folded gently a few more times to make a manageable piece to fit under the sewing machine. I did pin the ends a bit so the tiny scraps would not fall out.
Then take sharp scissors and cut down the center of each line, but not through the back layer.
When it was done, I was thrilled to have a piece of fabric that looked like this:
I am hoping to have time to finish this project this weekend so I can show you what I ended up making with my altered fabric.
Happy Halloween - Here it is Halloween 2015 and I have done absolutely Nothing! No table, no Halloween décor...............so sad......................... Last Halloween...
