More Clean Up

You may have noticed that I try to not throw anything away--it's both being frugal and trying to be kind to this earth. Fabric scraps are no exception to this rule. I had a big plastic bin under my sewing table that I threw any small scraps into. With the addition of a pile of scraps from a friend, it looked like this:

Very messy and difficult to sort through. I organized them all into colour groups (it wasn't as daunting as I thought it would be) and they now look like this:

Not the greatest photo, but you get the idea. Tomorrow I'll show you what I've been using these for!


  1. I feel inspired!! My fabric stash might be next. I have a ticker tape quilt in my heart for all my scraps.

  2. that looks great! sorting is so therapeutic isn't it?

  3. Ticker tape quilts are a fun way to use up scraps--I hope you do make one Erin! And post pics of course...

    Yes, Ruth, I'd really like a month off just to sort and organize and purge some stuff...I think that's how long it would take me to go through all my stuff!

  4. I'm glad you're putting those scraps and strips to good use. and I'm glad you took them off my hands too.

  5. Brenda, they've been perfect for the coiled mats! Thanks again.
