Two things I love about the internet: The sharing of ideas, and the community that you wouldn't expect to find from viewing a screen.
Today I was thinking about these things, along with an idea I've had.
Like, a year ago, I had this idea for stitching a little heart using paper instead of fabric. I thought it could be stuffed with something so that it was a little puffy. I figured that it would work, but wasn't sure exactly how I would use it. I keep coming back to this, and have still been unsure.
Today I pulled out some tracing paper (which I'm currently really enjoying), and tried out this stitched paper heart idea. One version has fluffy yarn inside, one has a paper heart inside, and the last has a fabric heart inside. All are stitched with crochet thread.
So, back to those things I love about the internet. I would like to propose a brainstorming session. You and me, all of us...coming up with what we could do with this idea of stitched, puffy (or flat), paper hearts (or other shapes).
Leave a comment with an idea, write about it on your blog and leave a link to your post, link to ideas you've seen, try something and report back. Whatever. Basically, I'm opening a discussion.
This is just an experiment, but I think this could be a fun thing...and if it goes well, we might just make this a regular sort of thing to share with each other!
