(These are still covered in bloom (unwashed) so I was told I didn’t NEED to refrigerate them right away ..of course I did, because are you f-ing crazy!)
Blueberry buckle – 1½ pints berries in a 6 x 9 casserole.
(Ok-ish blueberries were made 100x better with the addition of sugar and a buttery scone like cobble top.)
Natural dyed wool – 20 avocado skins to 1lb fiber.
(I keep a bag in the freezer for collecting skins until I have enough to dye with, be sure to give them a good scrub to remove any left behind flesh prior to storing, it will save you a lot of avocado scum headache when you heat the dye pot! You can save and use the avocado seed/stones in the same way.)
Cast on and a candy pouch – Avocado wool, 6 stitch markers & 1 chocolate bar.
(You can purchase iron on vinyl in craft stores and online, it allows you to turn most anything (like candy wrappers) into a sturdy sewable material! You will need a teflon foot for your machine so it can glide across the vinyl surface. Sewing Hack #1: Don’t have a teflon foot? A strip of matte “scotch” tape on the underside of your regular presser foot will work in a pinch.)
