    Can't throw away anything....

    ...and therefore my nickname "1000scraps", perhaps there are 1001 or 1002.... or more....!! And I'm always looking what to do with all sorts of scraps: and when I say scraps I mean scraps: down to stripes 1 cm wide...... And so I started to make "new" fabrics out of the left overs!!

    And then making little zipper pouches:

    But what shall I say: scraps are growing faster than I can sew...
    And as I'm new to this forum and as I'm not so familiar with English I hope everything is OK with this post.....

    Your English is wonderful and so are your adorable little zippered bags! Very clever use of scraps, and useful too.

    I totally enjoyed your post and your creativity with your scraps is adorable..I wish I could master putting in zippers those bags would help to use up leftover fabric.

    Love your 'made' fabric! Your bags are wonderful, and so it your English.

    Beautiful! and as expensive as the fabric is there in Germany, I can completely understand this!

    Your English is fine!

    Your English is great! Your little bags are fantastic! Good luck keeping up with those scraps-I think they multiply when you put them away.
