Scraps continued

 Now that the scraps are sorted, I decided to put them in this basket.

 The basket sits on my cutting table, so it's right  handy when I need to find something. I figure, if it's on the table, in full sight, then maybe they'll get used :)

This basket has some zippers, left over handle pieces, and long, thin strips that I use to tie my hair back with. I love having a pretty strip of fabric in my hair. LOL

And this little basket I fill with the little snippets that I just wont use. When it's full, the pieces go into a baggie. And when the baggie is full. I pop them in the mail to a friend who makes miniture quilts. (Sorry for the blurry picture)

I've seen these hanging fabric baskets, and have been meaning to make some. I know my youngest son would love them. He loves organizing his toys (he's 6). And I thought they would be perfect on the wall nearby my table, for holding scraps in. Maybe I'll make color cordinated ones...LOL, put my blue scraps in a blue holder, green ones in a green holder, etc.

I've put my first tutorial up! I posted it on the other blog site I post to, about a week ago. You can see it here.

I love making bags, and this one is great for all our books. But it could be used for going to the beach, a kids soccer/football/etc game, quilt quilds, whatever.

Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by Dorian

  2. That's a great way to sort your scraps Dorian. I made those bags for my grandchildren several years ago and they loved them. My daughter hung some pegs on their walls and they hung the bags from the pegs. One for toy soldiers, one for Legos, one for...well you get the picture. :) blessings, marlene


Your comments make my day :)
