A new twist on stashbusting

Today's project is vines. Jungle vines. Twisty, knotty, trailing vines with leaves.

The ingredients?
- Scraps of binding in shades of brown and dark forest green - ripped down the fold of the binding to create two LONG 1 1/4" strips.
- 1 1/4 WOF strips of fabric in medium green with a dark leaf pattern all over left over from the Munchkin's curaains, and bright olive.
- oval "leaf" shapes out of a solid green poly blend that was used as the lining for the same curtains.

The process?
Tie knots in the fabric about every 15" with one or two leaves caught in the knot. Repeat.

The purpose?
Decorations for a "Jungle Expedition" birthday party.

The inspiration?
This party at Family Fun.

Photos to follow in mid-February when the whole thing is assembled.

A large amount of hard to use fabric has been BUSTED in the process! Woo hoo!
