It's finally the end of the month!! Blogging every day is always a challenge and I hope all of you hung in there with me and my babbling. :)
How did you do with NaBloPoMo if you participated? Did you make it? I know a few of you did!! Congrats!! :D
Can't break tradition. Today is Tuesday and it's time for a tidbit.
It's a bit off the wall, but still useful.
When you are cutting your fabric, do you end up with long strips that are less than 1/2" wide but really long so you usually just throw them away? I usually get these when I make the cut to straighten an edge. Well, if you do, don't throw them away. Let's use them!
|Aren't they pretty? :)|
For this tidbit, I am using 9 pieces. You will want to be sure they are at least 12" long, I'd say.
Group all 9 pieces together and tie a knot at the top. Like so...
Now separate them into sections of 3 strands and braid them till you get about 3" from the end or so. You want this fringy tail. Tie another knot to secure it.
Oh, don't forget to get your kids in on the fun...
Now you are probably asking why would I make one of these, right?
Well....because kitties LOVE them!!! That's why!!
See...they are checking it out and testing it...
And they approve! :D
|Sunny hogs the toys..lol!|
Totally useful and then you don't feel so bad throwing away some of that awesome fabric! Win Win! :D
