My kids love doing crafts with pipe cleaners. They are soft and fuzzy and they hold their shape to whatever you make it into.
I thought I should give them a try on a little art quilt. This one was made in celebration of Valentine's Day. I shaped the pipe cleaners into hearts and spirals and couched them onto the fabric. Then I did some free motion quilting around them. Put a little sleeve on the back and it is ready to hang.
For this next one, I wrapped some very thick eyelash yarn around a pipe cleaner and couched it down. This one has a very very furry texture that makes you want to touch it.
I am currently working on some more zippered pouches. Wait till you see the cute zipper pulls I bought on etsy. And I am also working on a Shiva Paintstik tutorial to show you.
