Hey!

I bought one of those clever clover I-cord making things just for kicks and now have miles of I-cord!  For what?!  Anyone have any ideas of some of the better uses for I-cord??

Thanks!!

Recently I've been thinking I might like to make a sort-of bead curtain with I-cords by making lots of cords the same length, attaching them to a dowl rod of some sort and adding a bead to the end of each i-cord to hold it down...

would it be possible to coil the i-cord and make it into a rug?

I read somewhere where someone made a ton of Icord & then used the icord like it was yarn & then knitted it with HUGE needles, like size 35 or 50US.  I know Lion Brand makes a size 50 as I have a set.  I think they made a really cool rug or something.

Ooo thanks for the great ideas so far!  I'm liking the idea of a rug... I knew there was a way I could get rid of my icky acrylic!

Ooh, I have lots of i-cord, too!  45' foot of it, thereabouts.  I'm thinking of coiling mine into a rug.  You know, you can sew it, cut it, and use lengths of it to trim pillows, too.  Heck, if you have enough, you could trim a duvet and make a whole coordinated bedroom set.

I also have one of those clover i-cord machines...but I just found out I've lost the instructions!!! AGH! and of course I just bought yarn to make necklace or bracelets out of it...anyway, can anyone either explain how it works, or send me the instructions? My boyfriend doesn't understand why I'm tearing apart my craft room...again.
