Scraps, Scraps & More Scraps


After cutting pattern after pattern after pattern each and every day, my studio can quickly be overcome with fabric scraps. To some sewers and crafters this can be quite burdensome, but for me it is a wonderful opportunity to be anything but wasteful. Never does a scrap go to waste! These annoyances can easily become works of beauty and works of art! I save my scraps in clear bags assorted by color and stored. When the bags begin to overflow or the urge to use them arises these scraggly pieces full of strings and raw edges are cut and pieced together to be come functional items! This particular assortment (shown) will become a very funky, one of a kind, gender neutral quilt soon to be available for purchase in the A.B. Baby Boutique! We will be sure to post it when completed!
