Just for fun joining in with Cee’s Flower of the Day – bit cheeky!
I am often trying out ideas for crochet or knitting patterns and do small samples which of course I keep – being a super-hoarder. My grandchildren sometimes get out the box and make collages or birthday cards with them or use them for other craft projects. It is fun to see what they come up with.
Our tour leader on my up-coming trip said she normally gives 4 or 5 five inch squares of fabric as little gifts to our Japanese hosts. So with that as a guideline I felt that I would like to give something more personal to me and made up these 12 little gifts from my stash of samples.
Following the textile theme I wrapped them and a handmade business card, first in tissue paper held with Washi tape and then in a piece of fabric.
Washi tape is amazing stuff, so decorative for all sorts of projects. I get mine mail order from Papermash
Joining in also with Ginny’s Yarn Along, where you can see over 100 other yarny projects and book reviews. My book this week:
I bought this book in the 80s when I went to see a Japanese exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
