I had this quilt that wasn't really old, but had seen better days...it kept splitting at the seams and such. I decided it was time to craft with it. I took pieces of it and gave it the strong coffee treatment and let dry. I love making tags....and I always use my copies of old photos I collect. Just by adding a Santa hat...she looks ready for Christmas. This is a simple bag shape, with wire hanger and glued on cotton batting for a trim.
This one is very similar to the first one...I added a yarn and cheesecloth covered wire (candy cane). I added some old pine twigs.
I love using old candle stick stands from goodwill. I made a star shape with open bottom, stuffed it, and then plunked it down on the candle stick stand. Add a tag and wrap with string.
I have made alot from this quilt and still have more to use. It is the never ending quilt!
