How do you organize your scraps?
For a long time I've intended to buy some plastic containers to get more organized with the scraps. Finally last week I bought four plastic containers and during the weekend I've been cutting strips.... and cutting strips.... PHEEW! :)
This big shoe box was full of small and bigger pieces, plus another smaller box and a plastic bag... Time to get organized!
I don't know what I'll do with what is left in this box... The pieces are quite small and I believe it won't be used - not even for applique - as I intended to keep it for... Who knows; one tiny little piece in that specific color might be useful.... won't it?! :)
And this... what do you do with it? I don't throw it; I keep it for making pillows... to sit on... That is my intention! I already have two big plastic bags full, which should be enough for 2-3 pillows... Don't ask me when I'll do that.... in the future - on a rainy day... lol!
Here's the result of one evening and one mornings cutting and organizing. Four containers consisting of strips cut into; 1", 1,5", 2", 2,5", 3", 3,5", 4", 4,5" and some bigger squares.
It had been great making a scrap quilt out of all these strips - on a rainy day too! lol!
My previous post has a photo with view from my sewing room on a rainy and cloudy day. Here's the view on a sunny day - do you see the sea today? :)
