after all that power sewing
this is the container
so what is a gal to do?
well I went thru it and picked out some
pieces that were around the same size
laid them out in an order I liked.......
and sewed them
I am thinking this may be the start of
a zippy bag or something
for now it will just mull a little
as you can see it s tiny
so more green at top and bottom may be in order?
this is how I "slab"
I grab some pieces of fabrics
(I am bad I dont even iron them as you can see)
then I sew and chop off the excess
if it is tiny it goes in the trash
if it is bigger I save it for the next slab
this yellow was a small piece of leftover binding
that is why it is folded
but it will make a wider section
I just sew whichever way I want
to get to a size larger than 8 inches
see? the small pieces being chain pieced.......
that helps me power sew
and it is so relaxing
not a thought except what piece can I grab next
another session should tame this little bin so I can store my scraps again.
these pieces of "fabric' that I make
can be used in so many ways
I make slab blocks for a quilt
you can make zippy bags
whatever you use fabric in
you can make with it
and if you do a more controlled
scrappy like I did at the top
with the coins you can make a "set" of things
using the same color scheme
great little bags and accessories
and great little gifts
what are YOU saving out of the landfill?
