You may have come across Leanne and Nicky’s new monthly link-up of scrappy projects. It got me thinking about my love of scraps and what I use them for. I used to keep the tiniest pieces and then gradually started sorting them for this project:
At that point I decided that anything smaller than 1″ had to go!
Recently I completed a commission in which I do use some tiny pieces of fabric:
A soft book for a 1st birthday gift.
Every single piece of fabric for the applique came from my scrap boxes. Some are much smaller than others, some have come from projects I’ve worked on and others are from scrap swaps.
I think I spend more time selecting the scraps to use than sewing them! I’m becoming more ruthless in disposing of scraps but when I’m working on projects like the book I remember how valuable those tiny pieces are. Do you keep every tiny piece?
