I decided that I should use up every last scrap before moving on to the next project. Those scraps became these
Now it seems I am addicted to finding out what I can do with scraps... like this
and I have some other ideas floating around too. I've been having so much fun and have been able to do a little here and a little there in between being chief taxi driver, chef, housekeeper, homework assistant and school library volunteer.....
On a side note - if you like hunting through thrift stores like me, you really should go check out the new Public Markets in Turkey Creek. I have been a few times already and have already marked my favorites thrifting stalls. My biggest find has been yards upon yards of vintage lace which I used on the fabric atc above and this basket
There have been quite a few other finds too and I have gotten to know some of the lovely vendors working there.
My goal had been not to buy any new fabric until I had made a sizable dent in my current stash.....but surely vintage lace isn't included in that....right????
Oh and these and more projects are planned for my etsy store which I am hoping to fill over the next few months - so if you need unique local handmade Christmas gifts for your friends/relatives/teachers think of me :)
Have a great long weekend!
