I used to do gardening. But recently I'm addicted to a new occupation, I print different figures on a 3D printer Creality.
Here is one of my creations

WMU Teach- that is what I have done and now mostly make quilts and bags for foster children. Sometimes I get fabric donated to me to make pet beds. Nothing goes to waste.

For Christmas this year I made microwave baked potato bags, microwave popcorn popping bags and scrubbies (sewn ones). The scrubbies were approximately 3x5 inch fabric bags filled with fiberfill. There was an outside layer of nylon netting on both sides. Turns out they work great!

Interesting thread. I'll make fabric from scraps when I don't know what else to do. See the trash quilt below.
If I don't want to quilt I'll kit up a quilting project to work on later.
I'll do something on my embroidery machine; hot pads, mug rugs, quilt blocks for bags. And bags.
Been working on an trash quilt. The premise is to sew 2 pieces of scraps together called twosies, then foursies, the eightsies and on up until you are sewing 32sies together. At that point you cut out a 12 1/2 square of fabric. This is rather mindless sewing and it isn't something I do often. But so far, I have 7 blocks! There is a tutorial for this, I'll see if I can find it and post it later.

When making the trash quilt, would it be difficult to quilt it with all those seams?

I think hand quilting would be rather difficult. It could be tied easier than hand quilting. A domestic machine might have trouble with so many seems, but could also work just fine depending on the machine.
I have a longarm and I think it could handle it just fine.

I'm making bibs, burp cloths and receiving blankets. My great grandson arrives in August. His big sister will be 3 in September. I'll be making her some shorts and skirts. I've already made a quilt for the new baby.
