Today I have been having another day sorting my crafty stash, this time my fabric collection! It is now sorted in to 'Unfinished Projects', 'Usable Sized Pieces' and 'Fabric scraps'. When is a fabric scrap to small to be usable? It has too be tiny, I can only bring myself to part with incy wincy little bits! lol
When I'd finished I had a table full of usable fabric scraps. I will just share a small section with you.
So what shall I do next? mmmm sort the scraps in to colours, and then I took the blues, and sorted into size, squarish bits, strips etc.
Next I took the lengths of blues all different widths from 1" inch wide to 3" inch wide and ironed them. I had some small chunky pieces of dark blue approx 2 x 3. OK so off we go, I sewed the chunky bits to a strip. I did n't square anything up with my cutter and ruler. I just got straight in with the sewing and cut in to chunks with scissors and no quarter inches seams either! I just keep adding strips of different widths, turning the block and chopping off with scissors with a little bit of pressing in between.
I have squared them up to eight and half inches.
What do you think to my crazy wonky squares?
I have now started to join the blocks together with pale blue and white checked fabric.
What do you do with your left over fabric scrap?
Well its snowing again here in Sheffield tonight so more sewing I think.
What ever you are doing this cold winter night
Happy crafting and sewing hugs Lynne xox
