After this point, I either stick to a certain number of stitches, or just tat whatever looks right at the moment. Thus far, I have done two of these excess thread projects in size 10 thread.
The first ended up becoming a pencil holder.
|Duckie felt a sudden craving for burritos|
|When flipped upside down, the sombrero becomes a flower|
|Size 10 thread, various colors|
While the second became a sombrero for this rubber ducky!
So the next time you finish a project and see only a little bit of thread left on the shuttle, pause for a moment and think about what you might be able to use it for.
