It’s almost Christmas!
Let’s pass around the gifts.
Just as I did in October, today and tomorrow will be Giveaway Days!
Stop by throughout the day for cool free items.
First up: Wool. From the lovely wool shop Heavens to Betsy:
I know many of you are cotton sewers. And with good reason. It’s the most accessible and used fabric in the world. But 100% wool–typically made from the fleece of sheep–is also one of the most versatile fabrics we have. It can be lightweight in the summer and heavy in the winter. With wonderful wicking abilities, it pulls moisture away from our skin.
But enough technical talk.
What can you do with wool? (besides a bazillion felt craft projects)
Winter is a lovely time to break out a new wool skirt with colorful tights, throw a cute scarf around your neck, or sew a new bag! If wool feels too itchy on your skin, line your garments with poly-silk fabrics. I pinned a few ideas to my wool board to get you going…..
(some are DIY tutorials; some are just pretty pictures or items for purchase online).
