Default 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!!

My scraps, unsorted...

A little bit sorted...


Playing with colors...

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.

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.
