You may cut Beeskeeper wraps with scissors.

Why always changing patterns? I repurpose existing 100% cotton. Sheets and fabric remnants mostly. One consistent pattern is that of pine needles – makes for a beautiful abstract. As a reminder that a cup of steeped green pine needle tea may help minimize flu symptom. Free from your outdoor pharmacy.
