tested it out.
insights I garner from my experiments, I thought it fitting to give you a full

cause, well, they’re fun and cute! Plus, it means I don’t have to commit a
bunch of materials and time if it doesn’t work out.

linen leftover from my bag making days. This is still my go-to clutch whenever
I need some extra styling for a date night in the summer time! (or, as pictured above, for weddings!) But, I digress.
What I love about that floral is how happy it makes me.
thread weights in this project.
Scrummalicious is what comes to mind when I think of that quilt and that
think most people separate the strands, but I decided to go full hog for a nice

was high time I start sharing them! If you’re in need of a fun mini art quilt for your
home you can find these beauties here and here in the shop.
Now, I’m curious to know – have you given Aurifloss a go? And if you have,
what’s your favourite way to use this chunky monkey?! Share in the comments
