Isn't the hippo in the center adorable? If you haven't given her tutorial a try, please put it on your future project list! It's a great use for all of those small scraps you
The past few months I've been a little busier as I am helping plan and prepare a camping trip for a group of teenage girls at church. Our camp is a little over a month away and I am knee deep in preparations. We're supposed to have the girls "run" the camp, but I am one of those crazy people in the background :)
One of the items I get to put together are triangle bandages for the girls first aid kits. They had some from prior years, but sadly, they were cut too small...
So I cut some more and am trying to decide I am going to surge the ends, or if I am going to leave them as-is. The only time they girls will use them is if someone gets hurt, which rarely happens. Hmmmm... I think I'll put that on my, "if I have extra time before we go" to-do list. Thoughts?
And last but certainly not least, when I went to buy the muslin for the triangle bandages, I also needed some Kona White fabric. In my haste to beat the looming fabric cutting line, I grabbed a Kona cotton, that appeared to be "white." The woman at the cutting counter noted how hilarious she thought it was called "Kona Kona." I thought nothing of this until I looked at my receipt.
I bought the Kona fabric that's been prepared for dyeing. Oops! Another lesson re-learned, check the fabric label!
Now I am sorely tempted to try hand-dyeing some fabric.
