Wait! Come back! It's not as bad as it sounds I promise!
Or maybe it is...I did snag these out of a "going to Goodwill" pile (tell me I'm not the only person that does this to people?)
If it makes you feel better I don't intend on keeping them, I just wanted to see if I could make something from them since I was all in the mood for pink and red, it being Valentine's Day and all.
First one is easy! It's just a little guy - might have been a coaster even - I freehanded a stem and leaves onto some paper and cut them out, put everything on a white background and put them into a frame (from Goodwill of course) that was painted white. Of course as soon as I was done with this idea I thought of how much cuter it would be if the stem and leaves were done out of fabric. I'll leave that for you to try!
I have not yet learned to crochet since I'm still working on getting some knitting concepts down BUT if you do crochet and you make a set of small, scalloped edged items you'd like to give as a gift, I think it would be really cute to do this:
Make a cone or tube from paper and pinch the doily, coaster, dish rag, what have you, directly in the center and poke it into the opening until just the top is showing. It makes a cute little flower shape. Wouldn't it be fun to give a "bouquet" of those to someone?
Okay now I have to put everything back in the Goodwill pile and try to behave myself. (Haha!)
