Are you a scrap saver?
I mean, how small does a piece of fabric have to be before you relegate it to the Preschool donation bag?
|My current 3 boxes of scraps|
|By the way this is my Preschool scrap basket!|
This week I was the beneficiary of two generous scrap savers. The first was Jane, from Where Jane Creates, who sent me some scraps (see my previous reference to her scrap bin) for my PPP 'Summersville Neighbourhood' project. She sent me these delicious snippets in yellow, red, green, blue, orange and black. Thank you Jane.
The second was an amazing windfall of scraps from Kelly of Kelby Sews. I won these by linking up with her 'My Precious' post in June. Kelly has great taste in fabric and I was not disappointed to get some choice pickings from her floor. And many of them were decent sized.
Ok I will need some help with naming most of these prints so feel free to make a comment if you know one or two or ten. I only really recognise the Denyse Schmidt, Aneela Hooey and Heather Ross prints.
Purples (not a lot of this colour in my stash)
Wouldn't it be nice if more of us packaged up our scraps and sent them off in the mail to make another person's day? Or even manage a scrap swap?
Tips - Now scraps that are very small can also come in handy for making:
fabric covered buttons
cute gift tags (I used to bother sewing these on but now I just use a bit of stick glue for these)
