When life gives you scraps...
... make a pincushion
After making my quilted book bag, I had a few very thin strips which I'd cut from the selvedge - I'm guessing they were probably around 3/4" x 6".
Now, being the crazy scrap lady that I am, I sewed these teeny tiny strips onto a (scrap) piece of batting with a teeny tiny zig-zag stitch. Effectively, quilting as you go, but with a zig-zag, rather than straight stitch. And not using the usually flip method, but butting raw edges together and stitching on top. Makes sense?
And then turned that teeny tiny piece of quilted batting, into a pincushion...
... because you can always use one more pincushion, right?
Tell me about your scraps? Are you a crazy scrap lady too?
