MINIATURE YARN BALLS
Use any kind of lightweight yarn to create yarn ball and
skeins. For these skeins, we unraveled about 4 feet of
Lion Wool into its four separate strands, got them damp, ironed
them to make them straight and then wrapped them into skeins.
We made labels, cut them to size, wrapped them and secured them
with tape. Click here

MINIATURE PROJECT SHEETS
Click here to download the miniature Lion Brand
project sheets to print on your color printer. After the sheet is printed cut the sheets carefully to size. To keep ours organized, we used a thumbtack to make a hole in the corner and put a jewelry jump ring through the hole to keep them together. We have also seen very tiny two-prong brads that could be used for this purpose.
