How does the saying go? One person’s trash is another person’s treasure?
Working with such incredible people, I am always inspired by others’ creations, materials, and oftentimes their leftovers. Take Silke’s projects on the cover of the current issue, for example. Some items (such as clothing and baskets) were store-bought and dipped into dye, and others like the pillow covers were created by dipping and sewing plain yardage.
While cleaning up in the craft room I found a pile of dipped scraps that had been cut from pillow covers. They were so great that I didn’t have the heart to throw them away. I sewed them together and this is what happened.
I like how the strips came together to form a single wave; it reminds me of the ocean. What do you think I should do with it now? A wall hanging? A placemat? Another pillow cover?
