I have been saving old lotto tickets for some time, to experiment with. At first I just sewed two tickets together end to end, then cut them into strips and wove them. It worked but it made a flimsy woven sheet. I then sewed some tickets together end to end, then cut them in half lengthwise.
I folded these strips in thirds and sewed them. They gave me something with substance to work with. I like the weight of the woven sheet, and like the look of the sewn stitches on the paper.
