Not sure how you deal with scraps but I have been struggling to deal with mine lately.
One night it hit me.
Hubby likes us to "spend time together" at night.
This usually consists of him on the computer, the TV on and me bored.
So, I brought my scrap bin, mat, cutter and ruler downstairs a few nights ago.
I decided that I needed to cut my scraps into usable size squares or pieces.
I cut 2.5" and 3" squares, 1.5" wide strips and 5" charms.
If the pieces were larger I kept them.
If there were precious fabrics I just kept the small bits.
If I thought a small bit would work for paper piecing I kept it and put those in a bag.
Of course someone decided he needed to help me.
One of the other things I do with my scraps that are too small to use for anything
is to make a pillow like this one.
I buy half a yard (or so) of fleece and cut it in half.
Sometimes it is just what I can find in the remnant section.
Sew it like a pillow case and throw all the too small to use bits of fabric in there. I
also add scraps of batting that are too small to be useful.
Once the pillow is about 3/4 full I fold the edges under and stitch the opening closed.
A floor pillow or pet bed or whatever you want!
So far I have made three of these!
What do you do with your scraps?
