Funky Fabric Spools
What I missed the most during the power outage was not being able to use my sewing machine, Aunt Pearl's sewing machine! If you've been visiting my blog, then you not only see that it's in my banner image, but that this sewing machine is one of my most treasured possessions.
I was inspired by Fabric Beads Extravaganza. I was unable to take the workshop, so I just sat down at my machine and played around with my own versions. The question remains, what do I do with them? They look like spools of thread and seem too big to actually be used as "beads". With all the tree branches we have left over after IKE, I can attach them to make funky wall hangings or mobiles. All I know is they're fun to make, I can use up my scraps and gives me something to do while I'm watching TV.
