Sharing this may show just how crazy I am about using scraps, but I'll take the chance you'll understand. ;o)
I've mentioned my organization system for fabric before, so you know that I have see-through containers to house notions and others for fabric. I keep bins for cut squares and bins for cut strips and other bins for odd shaped scraps. However, you may not know that along with having separate containers for each size of leftover strips ( bins for each 1" to 4" in half inch increments), I also have a bin for the long narrow bits of fabric that come from squaring the ends on yardage.
Yes, I keep even those narrow, frayed bits. Why?
Maybe this will explain why....
I stitched those stringy scraps onto cardstock, "quilted" them and then cut them to fit onto the fronts of some tiny blank notecards.
For some I left the raw edges exposed,
while on others, I pieced to hide the fraying edges.
Now I have a collection of unique fabric happy notecards to use.
So am I crazy? No, on second thought, don't answer that! LOL
If, like me, you are a bit scrap crazy, then you should visit
My lovely friend makes so many pretty projects using scraps that I call her a "scrap magician". She hosts a scrap challenge each month and this month, for fun, I'm entering with this post.
Guess what the prize is, if I win? Starts and ends with "S".... LOL
Sounds good, right?
So join me, Maja and the many others in making something with your scraps for
