2. You may use new thread and batting.
3. Your project should include at least 3 different materials used as embellishments.
I started with two pillow cases..one white and a flowered one. I then quilted the white case starting at the top with blue threads and then fading down to the bottom with green threads. I then used an old green button down shirt for all the greenery and the binding on the peice.I then cut up the flowered pillow case and thread painted them to the quilt. The embellishments I added were the buttons from the shirt, flower beads from a kids necklace, barrettes that my neices were too old to wear and flowers from an artifcial flower arrangement.(btw...you can't really see the shirt buttons as they are under the flower beads. I just used them to make the flower beads 'pop') The butterfly trail of beads are from a big bag of sparklies I got from the thrift store a while back. Everything I used was from stashes I already had which had been purshased from the thrift store..... Including the thread! So that means I recycled stuff that had already been recycled!
Aprox. cost for all supplies was about $2.00.
Quilt measures 24" x 18".
Oh, and one more thing. I know some people might turn up their noses at my thrifted supplies, but I love using recycled items in my crafts...it makes me feel so very green!
