5 Ways to Use Leftover Embroidery floss


Inevitably you will finish up your embroidery kit and find yourself with leftover embroidery floss. Sometimes it is just a little and other times it can almost be an entire skein. Instead of despairing over where to store your extra supplies, you can now rejoice because I'm sharing five ways you can use your extra thread.

  1. Make friendship bracelets. I did this all the time as a child even though I didn't have many friends to give them to. I was the one in class with an arm full of thread.
  2. Wrap hoop earrings. Add more punch to your plain hoop earrings by wrapping them in bold colors of thread.
  3. Personalize a map. Highlight your home state, chart an epic trip, or celebrate the places you love the most.
  4. Weave. Did you know you can make a loom out of cardboard? Using a piece of cardboard and your extra thread is the simplest and cheapest way to try out weaving and it is much easier than you might expect.
  5. Tassels! So easy and fun. Plus, if you're like me, you can't stop touching them. You could easily turn these into earrings or key chain fobs.

Or you could use your extra thread to stitch up one of my designs on Pre-Printed Fabric. Each Pre-Printed Fabric design comes with a stitch guide and the design printed in color right on the fabric to make sewing simple.

Happy stitching!
