My creative space

I just finished my first attempt at the Pendrell blouse. I'll take pics and do a post on it soon. The space is presently being taken over by strips of dotty fleece.

Summertime is a good time to pick up cheap fleece throws or blankets. The house furnishings warehouse near me always does sale offers on fleece blankets in the summer. The fleece blankets are great for making kids scarves. I trimmed the finished edges of the blanket, then cut it widthways into 6 inch strips. Each scarve has fringed ends. The fleece doesn't fray so there is no need to edge-finish the long sides. I got 12 scarves out of a single blanket. These will be put aside until later on in the year when I start making up gift-boxes for the Operation Christmas Shoebox charity project.

Have a creative day, friends.
