If you have ever worked an embroidery from a kit before, then you will know that there are loads of threads left over when you finish. They've all been precut into lengths, so there's a limit to what you can use them for.
I used to keep them for any time I wanted to work up a small cross stitch, or to add embroidery details to another project. But not any more! I discovered how much fun it is to crochet with them...
So, I've collected all the leftover strands from my kit, and joined them together with knots. The only down side is that you need to use a fairly small hook... like the 1.25mm pictured here.
And what will I make with it???
Last time I used the scraps to make this little Easter surprise. I just kept all of those knots to the inside of my work, and you wouldn't even know they are there.
Of course, I don't really need another Easter chick...
What's need got to do with it??? I hear you asking
Well, it WILL need to be something small. Two reasons - firstly, there's not THAT much thread here; and secondly, nedd I remind you I will be using a 1.25mm hook???
So maybe a camera pouch, or a case for my sunnies? Not sure just yet. I'll have a play around and see what comes to life.
