And how cute is this fabric twine? Pretty cute, I’d say! And while I’d like to take credit for this incredible invention, I….alas….cannot. One of my friends sent me this fabric twine tutorial by My Poppet and it instantly resonated with me.
So I started making some because goodness knows I have a FEW scraps. (Hence the Scrapalicious Class people! Yes, it’s for me as well as you!) And pretty soon I had a huge ball of twine.
But me, being me….I had to find a way to “liven up” the presentation of the twine on the spool, so I got some jewelry wire spools from my friend Kathy at Moon Silver Studio and I was off to the races into my studio. I fashioned a cute cushioned top for the spool and am planning to make a cute round label to put on the bottom. Well everything just has to be cute, right? Then I wind about 4-5 yards of the fabric twine on the spool and it becomes just the cutest gift EVER! (OK, tired of me saying, “cute” yet?) I’m even thinking of making some to list on my Etsy Shop page.
This fabric twine tutorial will be the focus of my next Scrapalicious Class coming up on Thursday, September 11th at Our Sewing Room in Springfield. So if the twine moves you, come on down and learn how!
And here are some ideas on how to use fabric twine from all of you:
1. Using them in the garden to tie up vines
2. Braiding them together for bag handles
3. Wrapping packages

You are so very clever and may I say cute too! Who knew those spools would come in so handy and look so beautiful?! You will be getting more.
OMG! I think we should start a list of potential uses: I hadn’t thought of x-mas packages. My idea was tying up vines in the garden, or braiding them together for the handle on a bag!
I think you are right! I’ll add the list to the post….how fun!
I will be out of town and am SO bummed to have to miss this Scrapalicious class! This twine is so….wait for it…….CUTE! AND I would feel so righteous using all of those scraps in my scrap basket. The rest of y’all should sign up for this class….think Christmas and all that wrapping
