The "Official" Snippet Roll

You are probably seeing these everywhere now, because Carol's "Snippet Roll", has struck a chord with creative-stitcher-upcyclers.
But it all started as a Junk-le Bell inspired swap.


And I am thrilled to say that I have one of the "first" created!



It doesn't display well as an ornament perhaps, but that point doesn't seem to matter each time I unroll it and discover something new I missed the last time!
Carol has a Snippet Roll tutorial on her blog if you want to make one yourself.
She is also offering an on-line journal class. There is a button on her side bar to register!

Your pics are super Nathalie and really give the 'snippet' feel...I recognize the hand dyed pink silk cord too ;)
Happy Monday!

I love the snippet rolls. I have made some in the past with cut out words that creats a little poem of sorts. I even use the plastic thread spools and cover the ends with paper ephemera or fabric. I love your snippet and I bet you do see something new every time you unroll it. That's great!
