We all know what to do with a 2 1/2" strip but what about the 5" strips Island Batiks makes for us?
Lately I have been working with these strips and will show what I have been doing
when the actual projects are finished.
If you love to applique like I do, then these strips are the best. They give you a variety of fabrics and the strips are the width of the fabric.
Today I made this little hand towel from one of these strips and just a piece of another.
I have another set ready to go.
I believe you can get 3 to four of these sets out of one strip.
This hand towel is for a sweet friend but I was thinking of making more for the auction that
Wesley House (assisted living) has in March and November.
Sometimes these sweet ladies want to give a gift to someone and I think this would just be the thing, or maybe they might just want it for themselves?
Here is a sneak peak of another project using the 5" strips.
As you can see I am going to use Aurifil thread to do the blanket stitch around the petals.
