I've been cleaning out my cane stash and thinking about ways to inspire myself to use up some of my old canes. I decided to re-work some of them into new canes.

I had an abundance of chrysanthemum canes that I gave a makeover. I changed them into rectangular shapes and put them back together as square canes. The square shapes inspired me to make some square pendants and some tube shaped pendants.


Starting with another chrysanthemum cane, I re-shaped it into larger rectangles and put them back together in a basket weave pattern. I think I'll have some fun designing with this new shape.


I had yards of this Skinner blended jelly roll cane, so I thought I would change it into squares and use them to create a mosaic window. Now I have some good ideas for using the new cane.
