Gathering nuts

Last year when I was walking in the park I collected a bunch of pine cones and acorns. I had intentions of using them in craft projects but never did anything with them. That is until the other day. The pine cones are still sitting but I did use the acorns. More specifically I used the acorn caps.


I now have brand new acorns and less scrap fabric..

as the MadSnapper, I feel it is my duty to comment on the photo of the acorns, not the acorns themselves. awesome comes to mind.

Those are so cute! We had lots of acorns in the front yard last year and I thought I should save them but didn't. I might this year and try that as long as it doesn't involve sewing.

I love that idea! I also have that same exact fabric. Perhaps I should scan my yard and make myself some.
