Hello dear readers
Although I'm teaching how to make miniatures, I still don't have enough pupils to justify spending funds on craft materials. I spent a lot of time trying to come up with ideas on how to use available cheap stuff for crafting and recycling.
Here is what we managed to create last week, at no cost, except for the white plastic glue that I supplied from my own stock. The burlap was a left-over scrap, also from my stock.
I forgot to take photos of the way the baskets were made. You can figure it out for yourselves, or if anyone is interested, I'll make a step-by-step tutorial. All the baskets in the photo are made out of glue stiffened burlap. We pulled out lengths of threads before stiffening the burlap to make the handles and for trimming the ends. The knitting needles are tiny colored foam balls pierced into straight sewing pins.
Remember the poster from my previous post here? There was enough card paper left to make 10 more pitchers.
I wish all my followers and readers a happy, enjoyable weekend with blessings.
