You guessed it.  I just couldn't leave those Kaffe Fassett scraps alone.  They're so irresistible! ;o)
 I combined them with some rustic linen and  a few buttons, to make myself a new tissue holder/zippered pouch (using the pattern found in Suzoko Koseki's book, Patchwork Style).

For the back of the pouch, I went wild!  No scrap is too small when I'm looking to make "yardage".  All those pieces come together, like a puzzle, which is a fun way to piece.

Goodness, it's surprising just how satisfying sewing small  scrappy projects can be. 
 I know this won't be the end of my scrap forays, but I really do need to get back to finishing some of my larger projects.  I guess it's time I hid my scraps, to keep from being distracted. ;o)


  1. It's great to see what can be made with small scraps with a bit of imagination. I am really loving the bright colours.

  2. So beautiful! Great idea to make both sides so different! Adorable scraps!

  3. So cool and I love how you scrapped up the back!

  4. You're a scrappy queen! What a cute make.

  5. Cute! Use every little scrap is a lot of fun!

  6. That is a really nifty little bag - scraps are definitely the way to go!

  7. I see a flaw in your plan! You will return to bigger projects and what do bigger projects make? Bigger projects make scraps!

    Love your pouch, it's fabulous! Oh, just realised I never emailed you! What a horrible cow I am... doing it now...

  8. wow.. very nice patchwork.. love your flowery quilting design too.. :)
