OK, Creative people out there, I need your ideas!
My Uncle Rod used to have several clothing lines in New York City and pictured here you can see samples of the patterns a number of garments could come in. He's long since passed away, but I have had these samples for many years. My mother made a purse from one of them, but the pieces are pretty small once you try to make something - maybe 8 by 10. Since they are all covered with sequins, they are gorgeous, but not easy to sew with. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could use these samples? I know I could cut off all the sequins, and use them for CQ, but that seems like a waste of some really pretty patterns.
I recently got a birthday card that was really cute with a cake on the front decorated with sequins. Well I have to confess, I cut all the sequins off the card to use for CQ! I don't know - should I feel guilty or just resourceful - ha ha.
