Then last week I started to make my mother a scarf using a small remnant of fabric which she gave me when she could no longer see to sew. I realised that this piece of fabric would fit the fabric criteria. Unfortunately, I didn't take a good enough photo at the early stages (it's not going to work) as at first I thought the fabric was too long. However, what I had was a short length of full width fabric, rather than a long length of narrow fabric - width is not specified but length is. I realised this too late. I took a better photo with measuring tape of the finished item and it will either do or not. Doesn't matter.
I hope I might get to post a photo of my mother wearing it.
Addendum - I've escaped for a few minutes. My mother likes the scarf. She doesn't have the original treatment any more but told me that this fabric had been bought to trim a matching hat.
Next up, when tidying my fabric, I came across the rest of the fabric left over from when I made my daughter large elephant cushions.
I found I had two pieces left over. I decided to use this to make her another cushion. The choice was one largish cushion or two smaller long cushions which I preferred.
Addendum - Joanne loves the cushions and says she'll send me a photo of the whole family of cushions - these two and the two elephant floor cushions (this fabric one side; tapestry elephant other side)
|Less than a yard of fabric, even before trimming|

I have some nice pieces of Christmas fabric (bought, I confess 2 years ago) and had a vague notion of making some Christmas crafts but I've abandoned that thought. The fabric will still be there next year… Maybe you have to start these things in January!
Addendum - it's Christmas Day evening and I'm bushed, and escaping for a few minutes. I finished the kimonos and will post about them separately in the next couple of days once I get photos, too. Ditto for the scarf and cushions.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
