Yesterday I started looking through my stash, trying to sort out some of the fabrics I never use. While doing so, I found some small scraps of sparkling fabric, and I suddenly realized that I could use those fibers, ripped off, as a kind of sparkling "Angelina" (which is unknown here and therefore only available from abroad) ...
I don't know yet if it would melt as well as the "real" thing - but for sure it's going to add some sparkle to my spinning and embellishing projects!
At http://www.velmasworld.blogspot.com/ (Velma is a fantastic fiber artist spinning beautiful yarns -sigh ...) I saw her fancy glass jars filled with colour assorted material to add into her handspun yarns - and I knew I wanted something like that too. Unfortunately, I don't have enough of those big glass jars - but I do have some empty PET-bottles, and so I re-used them:
I just cut off the neck of the plastic bottles with a sharp crafts knife, dividing the bottle in
a) a stash jar:
b) in a "greenhouse" for my early Spring seeds:
