Yarn scraps

this was an idea posted on someone's blog (sorry I don't remember whose right now)  I made this for my grandma for Valentines Day.  The example was stitched on a sewing machine, I however had to stitch mine by hand.

 After I cut out the heart shape I taped the edges up really good with clear packing tape, then I used a hole punch and just punched holes randomly around and got lucky it came out even.
 I made up the boarder as I went, if it didn't sit right I frogged it (don't know how many times I pulled it out) before I liked how it looked.  When I went to bed that night actually I still wasn't convinced I liked it, until my mom said how nice it looked, and I had to make sure she wasn't just saying that to be nice!!!  Because probably alot of people who make crafty items are always there own worst critic.
What's a little valentine's day in July.  Gotta get to sleep, I'm way past due now


  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog :) This is a really wonderful idea! It probably didn't take long to collect those scraps! I bet you'll have many more of these with your giant CAL :)
    Have a wonderful day!

  2. Love this! It may even get me to start saving my yarn scraps, which I shamefully just throw away right now!

  3. What a clever idea for al those little cut off's
