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!
