My kids love to forage in my craft stash when they are bored and looking for a project.
Oh, wait, maybe it is *I* that loves to forage there.
No matter, we were all tickled to find a pile of burlap pieces that I snagged at a yard sale over the summer.
(Note: I'm not one of those hardcore yardsalers. I go to one yard sale a summer and hope for the best. I have friends who are self-proclaimed hardcore and I have been known to hand them my list and depend on the power of bartering later. Thanks for putting up with this, SL!)
Burlap, combined with plastic needles, yarn, and a bit of childhood inspiration yields quite a bit of beauty.
