Embellishments & ladies undies...!!!
For small neat tidy flowers and/or bows, I snip them off new briefs and bras...Yes. True. I do not like the extras as they show through outer clothes. (That really ages me, yes?).
I like to purchase at least 6 of each item when in need of new undies, so have 6 matching flowers/bows absolutely free.
Would you like fee ribbons?
There are some really nice ones are wrapped around throws, pajamas, nighties, etc.
Usually they are quite wide, (1.1/2"), and they come in vivid colours. I like to use them as a stripe down one side of a card.
I am sure others will find this a really good tip... and the knicker trade will grow because of all the ribbons and bows we all want for our cards.
The lace from unused garments can be removed too, and don't forget to remove the buttons from things about to be thrown away.
Crafters never waste anything!!
