Making fabric collage squares for the Twinchie projects was such a fun way to upcycle some of my fabric scraps, I carried on making them
The first ones were 10″ squares, but I realised that 12 ” squares are much more versatile
You can divide them into 2″, 3″, 4″ or 6″ squares.
The squares actually measure 13″ to allow for the squares to be cut just slightly over the these measurements to allow for a little bit of trimming if necessary.
They can also be divided into different sized rectangles or strips
I love making these, even though they take longer than you’d think to get the placement satisfactory. When I have a pile of about 50 I might put some in my Etsy shop just to see if anyone would want to buy them as starting points for their own projects.
If you fancy one – just send me a message via the Contact Me page.
Once all of the Twinchies are back and I have completed a piece of textile art with them, the plan is for these squares to be used in more collaborative textile art projects. Watch this space!
PS. For WordPress users – is the new format driving you crazy? Arrgghhhh!
…… but I was absolutely amazed that it seemed to have been created perfectly for Zoya Matyushenko’s design ‘Sol’, with the colour changes occurring on or near each round change. I did not cut the yarn at all, this is exactly as it came out, with a little yarn to spare.
The yarn is 100% acrylic DK worked with a 4mm hook.
I loved making it but now that it is finished and blocked, I don’t really have a use for it.
It measures 17″ or 43cm across
It could be a large table mat, or attached to fabric to make an 18″ cushion cover – do you have any other ideas?
Would anyone like it?
I’m offering it to you lovely lot first – after a week I’ll put it in my Etsy shop at a nominal price.
The ‘cake’ cost £6.99 but I’m happy for it to go to a good home for free. I would love it to be used in some way.
You can go to my ‘Contact Me’ page and message me if you would like it.
I’m not expecting a rush, but if there is more than one person who would like it, I’ll put names in a hat and draw one out next Friday.
