Okay, I recently found a nice little way to store my growing collection of floss, so I thought I’d share it with you all.
1. after you have used an entire box of tissues, collapse the box and tear out the plastic shield2. cut off the littlest flaps first (if you have a lot of floss, you can…
This is a very good idea if you have a lot of cotton floss to store and not a lot of monies!
I would suggest against this technique if you’re storing lots of silk thread, or if you need to store thread in an archivally safe fashion…but if you use it for DMC or Anchor thread, you’re probably fine. (And if something bad happens to your thread when it’s stored this way, write to me and I will send you some more thread, because hoo boy, do I ever have a LOT of DMC.)
A year and a half later, I’ve officially finished all these patterns. I stumbled upon them on tumblr and found the patterns on Awenmir’s Deviantart last February. School and other projects got in the way, so that’s why it took so long. (Sorry the picture quality is so bad)
Unfortunately, mistakes were made early on, and so as you can see, they’re not on evenly sized pieces of material. I have no flipping clue what I’m going to do with them once I iron them….
No clue what my next project will be….maybe I will work on my quilt some more…
They’re fabulous! If I may make a suggestion, you might wish to consider putting them all in the same size/type of frame, so the difference in sizes between the pieces of fabric will not be obvious. Regardless of what you choose, I hope you share the result with us!
