Fabric Salad

Green goodness for quilters and sewists

A sort story

Once upon a time, I had two large plastic bins filled to overflowing with scraps of fabric. I just couldn’t get rid of any of the little pretties. Clearly, I heart scraps.

Back to those overflowing bins: One day, I realized that the bins would fit under my guest bed, so now I can have all my scraps, but I don’t have to look at them every day. And I lived happily ever after. The end.

Bet you thought I was going to tell you how I carefully sorted through my scraps, organizing them by color. I did do that once, a long, long time ago…at least I think I did.

Take heart! Unruly scraps can be herded into sweet little piles. Take some tips from Lindsay Conner at Craft Buds. She’ll walk you through the process and get you fired up to turn those leftovers into a feast.

    Cute piece. I too enjoy fabric. Not enough time to make them into scraps, yet.
