Winding Twine



When my intangible work takes up most of my time, I really find myself craving the tangible.  So, this past year, when I didn't have much time to sew, I found a project that I could do a little bit at a time - while watching the kids or watching TV.  I had a couple of sheets that were the big kid's that had seen better days.  They were ripped and faded but I didn't want to throw them away.  In the condition they were in they were not suitable for giving away, nor were they suitable for making into clothes or quilts.  So, I decided to make twine.


Winding the twine is kind of meditative and satisfies my need to be doing something productive even if I don't have time to sit in front of the sewing machine.  And it is easy to do a little at a time.  I don't quite know what I will do with the twine when I finish - perhaps crochet it up into a basket, like this one?



This website had my favorite tutorial for making fabric twine, in case you want to make some too.
