Memorial Day

Quick craft for Memorial Day ...

These are my little crosses that I knit on my knitting machine, then starch them, glue them together and on a craft stick that I've dipped in verithane.

You don't have to have a knitting machine in order to do these, find some firm lace at a fabric store. Cut pieces 6" long and 4" long (cross-bar). Firmly starch them FLAT overnight on a corkboard you've covered with plastic wrap. The next day, take them off your board, then dip in verithane, let that dry completely and then glue together and then onto a craft stick. They're a nice touch to an arrangement of flowers.
