Gifts from Grandma

I recently acquired loads of goodies from my grandma’s “stash”. Buttons, elastic, zippers, patches, thread, as well as all sorts of doodads I’m not really sure what to do with… I am particularly excited about the Big Mac Iron-Ons, the Dippity-Do jar, the Howdy-Doody patch and the Knitting Knobby.

I’m still trying to figure out how to use the flat braid, the knit perma-trim, and the hem & drape markers. And I need some ideas for projects to use the patches, trims, and iron-ons. I’d also like to come up with something nice to do with the tatting pieces my grandmother made.

Any ideas?
