So… after learning how to make my Shabby Chic Scarves, then moving on to create several Fabric Collages using the Sulky Solvy technique, I came across these instructions for thread bowls by Wendy Hill, author and Textile Artist. I’ve been collecting thread ends and other fibers for quite a while, not knowing what I would use them for, but knowing that some day the right project would come along! The rest is history. These bowls are not super sturdy, but they are real eye-catchers, and I think they are just the beginning for me.
After trying out Wendy’s instructions, I also bought her book
I feel I could have stopped at her tutorial, but the book does add a few ideas to the mix, for future inspiration. Bottom line, here are 2 more great ways to use up some of your scraps (in this case thread), and create some lovely fiber art pieces!
