So - what do you do with your left over threads - I am an avid collector of snippets of thread - have collected every thread I have snipped off a project for years..... So what do you do with all these.....
well - you lay them out, sandwiched between water soluble fabric, like this
or like thisor my favourite like this... then you stitch, heavily stitch... like this
or like this
or like my favourite like this.....and what do they become? Well you need to wash out the soluble fabric leaving just the thread and you have.... This or this or my favourite.
I have put one of them on Etsy and intend making lots more - they are just thread with a few tiny snippets of ribbon - no backing fabrics and no stiffener - the water soluble does hold the shape well.
