Scraps too small to use


I know everyone’s idea of how small is “too small” is different. 

One of my favourite tools in the sewing room is the waste basket – when the snippets of fabric are really too small to use, that’s where they end up.  I feel real progress in using up fabric when I watch the mound of scrap grow in the waste basket.   What gets tossed varies with the type of fabric, the style of fabric and probably the phase of the moon – some days I am able to drop a fairly big piece in there, and on other days I can’t part with anything wider than about 3/4 of an inch.

Final Scraps

Yes, I know some people could use those thread ends and tiny bits to stuff pillows or to make pet beds, but in my house, this is THE END.

Hehehe! So funny. I love that tool too. Sometimes it's just nice to let them go and not have to stress over them.
