We are continuing this week’s theme: mushrooms!
Let’s cook up a batch of Rose’s Mushrooms...
(Be sure to have your doodled variations ready!)
And stir in a new thread–Aurifil Lana 12/2 50% Wool, 50% Acrylic. (Read more about Lana thread here.)
Once you know a motif, you don’t have to reserve it for quilts only!
I made a couple of tea towels (Donroven tea towels from Craftsy HERE) (affiliate link)
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!
(See my sailboat version HERE)
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,
