2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / What to do with wool? (4 photos) on: March 21, 2009 01:43:43 PM
Hi All,

Wasn't sure where to post this - but this seems the right place as 2 of them are cards.

My husband was going to a car boot sale, I asked him to buy trim and sewing thread, he returned with a huge bag of 24 large spools of wool. I'm not much of a knitter or crocheter though I'd like to learn.

so this is what I've done so far to make use of it.

1. I've added 'hair' on a birthday card.



2. I made a woolen 'dolly' and put it on the front of another birthday card




3. My husband put some nails in a woodchip board so that our son could make string pictures



So my question to all you lovely clever crafters is: What else can I do with all this wool?

Thanks for reading and sorry for all the pics.
I'd love to hear any comments, criticisms and ideas.

 Grin Thank you both for your kind comments.

vegbee, I can't take credit for the curved hem, it was part of the jeans already.
appliques: my son loves trains, he's a right little train spotter!

Yay! figured out how to post pictures and not just a Link!!  Grin

I have a four year old who has a 1 year olds waist but a 3 year olds legs and as money is tight I decided to alter some of his old trousers.

I had 2 identicals trousers, both too short but fit fine round the waist so I cut of the bottom of one and added extra length to the other. I also drew piratey stuff with sharpies and now he has a new pair of play trousers, fine for messing about in. I appliqued an 'A' for his name on the others and hemmed them so he also has personalised shorts that he loves (no photos here).

back


These jeans were too short so I cut them on the curve, hemmed them and added an applique using  some jeans scraps that I had.
