FABRIC SCRAPS BECOME TWINE

Fabric Scraps Become Twine

Those who sew and quilt have mounds of excess fabric.   Some pieces are too small for future projects and are discarded.  How can you upcyle or recycle these tiny scraps of fabric?  The tutorial video below illustrates a very simple way to turn fabric scraps into spools of twine.  A simple, easy, DIY project!

How to #Thread an #Embroidery Needle Tutorial Video From ChellyWood.com #Crafty

Chelly Wood

The next part of our Swedish traditional costume is the neckerchief. (I’ll be posting the free pattern next week.) I embroidered mine with little flowers, so I’m going to share a few embroidery videos and tips with you, so you can make a neckerchief like mine, if you so desire.

If you like my free patterns and tutorials, please show your appreciation by doing one of the following: like my tutorial on FB, tweet about it, and/or pin it to your Pinterest page. That way you’re helping to spread the word that these free, printable sewing patterns exist.

All of my free, printable sewing patterns can be found on this page. In addition to embroidery basics, like this video shows, I have a number of other embroidery videos, like my whipstitch tutorial and my backstitch tutorial. Click on those links to see them.

Please come back next week…
