Fabric Easter Grass.

Saturday, April 23, 2011

I can't take credit for this idea; that goes to April 1930s, who runs a fabulous shop and sews beautiful clothes.  A while back a bought a Singer hand-crank pinking machine from April.  It's a fun gadget, but best of all it cuts beautiful fabric Easter grass.  You start with some fabric -- I chose some that actually looks like grass:

Put it in the pinking machine and turn the crank to cut scallop-edged strips:

Easy as pie, before you know it you've collected a pile of soft, pretty Easter grass:

You could, of course, accomplish the same thing with pinking shears.  But that might hurt your hands a bit, and you wouldn't have the softly curved edges that the Singer pinking machine creates.

Put it in an Easter basket, and you're ready for the Easter Bunny.

Happy Easter!

  1. I love this. I'm so doing it next year but probably with pinking shears. I'll have to work up my hand strength :)
