Fabric strips: Use lightweight cotton quilting fabrics in 1 yard or longer lengths. These can be torn into almost any width and will tear evenly from almost any good quality quilting fabric. I tie the long pieces together with knots and then roll into a ball for storage.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
