Scraps…

How about you…can you throw them away? I can NOT..not even the tiniest of scraps…so I’m saving them…for special projects…lol…

When I sewed on Annika’s Broken Star blocks there were a lot of corner cut offs. I sewed them together into half square triangles while sewing the block…that makes the work a little bit more fun…and it’s better to have them sewed together to a block rather than lying around somewhere…❤️


This time the scraps became the sweetest little pincushion… and it was the perfect gift to my lovely friend Louise…pink and black… colours she likes.


I actually made another one for me…in a different pattern…which reminds me to finish it! Wonder where I put that one?


Kind of cute isn’t it? ❤️


So don’t throw your scraps away!! ❤️️

    Så söt Stina! Jag vet att du tycker man ska spara minsta lilla tygbit, det lärde du mig när jag gick kurs med dig. Och jag sparar!
