The little things


Since my friend Amy showed me the cards she'd been making with tiny leftover scraps of fabric, I've been anxious to try! So when I had a couple spare minutes I whipped these out.... and let me tell you.... they are a blast! 


I used to think card-making was kindof boring..... but not this way!


I told my husband I want to cut a 1/2 inch strip off every piece of fabric I own just to make more.... would that be crazy?  =D  Originally I'd saved lots of "stringy" scraps to crochet into tiny rugs such as this one on our table that's been well-loved.....


Or this one that's never been finished....


But I really do prefer these cards.  When finished, they'll be glued onto card-stock. Can you tell what my favorite color is?  Actually I had pink scraps out from two recent quilts, so they were handy to use.


And the sweetest little thing around here.....

...will be 5mos. this week! Oh how the time flies.

Your cards look great, Lisa! Aren't they so much fun to make?

Everytime I visit Lisa, I tell you how awesome your latest project is...

These are so sweet, I might have to have a go at making them. Are they just glued down in strips to cardstock?

So you just sew together those strips and then you will glue/stick them to index cards? Is that the idea? I have to go link to Amy to see if I can see what this is all about. Love your blog. :D Beck

You sew the strips to computer paper, then glue-stick to cardstock; I'll do a better post soon to explain a bit better. Glad you like them! =)
