After last month’s rather cheeky (and violently coloured) scraphappy day entry – the yarn I used for my anti-hunter, bright orange beanie could only very tenuously be called scrap – this time I’m back on good behaviour for this, the last scraphappy day of the year.
A selection of scraps were unearthed and I display the proof below (although some of these didn’t make the final cut.)
You might remember that, last year, I paper pieced a reindeer and made it into a Christmas table runner.
I bought another pattern from the same designer.
Now, I’ve made a scrappy gnome and don’t really know what to do with him.
Because a gnome isn’t just for Christmas is it?
Any ideas? He’s 12 inches square.
Scraphappy Day is organised by Kate & Gun for anybody who wants to make new things from scraps of any kind – doesn’t have to be fabric or yarn. Here’s a list of participants – both regular and occasional – if you want to have a look at the sort of things you can do with scraps.
Contact Kate (first name on the list) if you want to join in.
