Friend, I say. Join me as I explore the ever expanding world of naval lint.
To begin we will need lint reserves. I have my Belly Button Lint, BBL, stored in a beautiful ball canning jar. Many of you may be throwing your lint away or just leaving it in the naval cavity. Collection and storage are very important.
I collect my BBL with a hand made collection brush.
"If your belly has lost its luster, try this belly button duster." (thefunplace.com)
Curve the end of a sparkly pipe cleaner (this type tends to be stiffer and is able to collect more BBL than the plain type of pipe cleaners) into an oval shape. Use the oval end to collect your BBL. If you prefer not to come into this much contact with your naval this product might work for you.
You will want to store your BBL in a cool dry place. If you keep your BBL in any type of container make sure to keep the lid off, otherwise your BBL may develop an unpleasant odor.
Decorate container as desired.
Now comes the fun part: making crafts or other useful things with your BBL.
I saw a few ideas on the net, but, sadly there were no pictures of actual BBL creations.
Please leave me your ideas and I will try your ideas out and report back. Please keep in mind I do not knit. I may not be able to reproduce your ideas if they are too complicated.
