My mother wants to get back into crafts. A long time ago she use to take her friends' ruined pantyhose and create the most adorable little potato sack decorations you ever did see. She'd stuff the pantyhose with pillow-fill, shape them into little balls and then sew little potato dimples into them. She'd then arrange ones of different sizes and sew them into cut up burlap sacks to look like a bag of overflowing potatoes.
Unfortunately her friends don't wear pantyhose anymore. she wants me to "go to the internet" and find people who have either the ruined nylon stockings or burlap that would send her these items. She said she's happy to reimburse them for shipping.
I've suggested that we just buy nylon and burlap in the craft store, but she said that defeats the whole purpose. That this is a trash to treasures kind of thing.
I have absolutely no idea where to go on the internet to find or ask for these things.
