What to do with these scraps? They are so small, most people just throw them out. I never throw anything out and by golly I’m glad I don’t. I found a wonderful use for them recently when my granddaughter and great granddaughters came to visit.
Norah with her beautiful smile found a use for them.
Older Sister Claire with her great sense of style used them.
They probably get their artistic bent from their Mom who is helping them make jewelry.
Claire shows us how it is done. You just take some masking tape, make a circle (a little larger than your wrist) with the sticky side out, and stick those little pieces of fabric to it.
Norah has her bracelet finished and is ready to start on a necklace. They made bracelets, necklaces and rings.
Claire is laughing at me because I didn’t know how to make beads.
Norah shows me how to make a bead with a straw and some fabric and some glue. (check out her necklace). These kids showed me even more uses for these little pieces of fabric. It kept them busy for hours!
This is a bead and you can string it! Doesn’t this look like a nice bead?
What a perfect day. Could I ask for anything more? It looks like they had a fun day too. I sure did!
On Another Note: The Busy Bean has a nice tutorial for a place mat.
Until next time, ♥ Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive! Caroll
Generosity has no bounds. Above are the women in the Quilts For Kids group at the Attic Window Quilt Shop. Left to right, Henrietta, Phyllis, Nancy, Carol, Karen. These women donate their time, fabric, money once a month to make quilts for kids who have cancer.
