It would be wonderful to see your effort. Ducks? Pheasants?

Much appreciated! I couldn't figure out how to do that linky thing.

I think both designs would be great for quilting fabric. Think Jinny Beyer-like border fabrics and kaleidescope effects. 

Or, use them for gift wrap for outdoorsy types. If you want to maximize the renewable theme, you could make a re-usable gift bag from fabric.

Such awesomeness.

Thank you. You can buy this fabric on Spoonflower in a variety of fabrics and give it a try. I also have a design there taken from a photo of birch trees with moss and pale turquoise lichen.

I hope the auction raises some good cash. With the funding cuts to the Wis DNR, fundraising takes woman power.

I am a flyangler and volunteer with Trout Unlimited in Mn and Wis doing habitat restoration and stream surveys. We survey with the help of the DNR to assess the population of trout and other species as related to the health of the watershed.

On one such survey, I was measuring a bucket of trout and snapped a photo of the whole shiny, spotted mess of them before letting them go. I used this photo to design some fabric on Spoonflower, which was printed on silk.

SeeKateSew has a good pattern and instructions for sewing bow ties.  Martha Stewart has some great reverse printed instructions for tying them that you can hang on your shirt button while you look in the mirror tying your tie!

So here's a finished tie that will be donated to a TU fundraiser.

Thanks. Suffice to say, the patch is on the inside and practically disappears when the Mod Podge dried.  I did have to clip the edges of the patches so they would stay flat accommodating the curves inside the hat.

It's hard to find a good wide brimmed hat, so when the crown cracked, I repaired it with a little glue and a tulle patch. I also braided new leather stampede strings.  The fishing photo is a "before" shot.

Great idea. Ours is useless for anything but hanging bird feeders on, this would be a big improvement!

What variety were your beers? You know, in the interest of full disclosure?

We brew too, but not crochet. Really a cute project.
