The scraps from the my Shibori Quilt have been hanging around my studio for days, so today I decided to do something with them today. My plan was to use them all up. There was something magical about the way I designed the Shibori Quilt and I didn’t want the mojo to slip away.
First I made some potholders from the bigger pieces. I designed them similar to the quilt, but it took me a long time to do each one. Shrinking the quilt idea down to potholder size wasn’t easy. I finally got 4 done, then ran out of big pieces of fabric.
Then I used the rest of the scraps to make as many Shibori Heart of Scraps Potholders as I could. Turned out there was enough for 5 potholders.
But I had this blue wool I wanted to use for one, I just knew I wanted to see those colors on that blue. But I don’t think wool would make a good potholder so I made it into a small pillow, (just a bit bigger than a potholder) instead.
I knew I was done when I had only a tiny pile of scraps left.
Tomorrow I’ll drop all the potholders off at Kim’s so she can assemble them. They are all for sale. The patchwork ones are $15 each + shipping and the Shibori Heart of Scraps are $20 each + shipping. The pillow, which measures about 11″x11″ is $30 + shipping. If you’re interested in any of them just email me here or at [email protected]. I take checks and paypal.
