We are continuing this week’s theme: mushrooms!
Let’s cook up a batch of Rose’s mushrooms.
And stir in a new thread–Aurifil Lana 12/2 50% Wool, 50% Acrylic.
Once you know a motif, you don’t have to reserve it for quilts only!
Try it on a tea towel, or a bathroom towel, or make stationery! Just add a your fabric stabilizer to the back. ( Sulky Fabri-Solvy— is easy to use and rinses out in water.) (affiliate link)
I made a couple of tea towels.
The red and yellow combination was stitched with Aurifil’s Lana wool/acrylic.
The blue and white was stitched with Aurifil 28 wt cotton.
One thing to note here…this is not quilting anymore–because we don’t have three layers, I would call this free motion embroidery!
Those mushroom spores are getting carried away!
Any border motif would work well!
What about YOU?
Have YOU ever used a motif in a non-quilty way?
Have YOU made towels or stationery?
Or another DIY project?
We’d LOVE to hear!
YOUR Happy Hostess,
