    How creative! When I think back to all the scraps I have thrown away over the years it breaks my heart, especially now that I have seen what people have done with them. I am not really into scrappy quilts but I have seen so many amazing ones. I love the way they look but just can't see myself doing any. Now I have a lovely lady that I send all my batik scraps to and soon I will have to do some PIF's to clear out all my cotton scraps. I guess it is true that one person's scraps are another person's treasure!

    Neat idea!

    Now make a bunch of itty bitty ones and stuff them in a clear glass ornament and hang them on your Christmas tree! Wouldn't that be cute?

    You could probably sell those and make your fortune.

    They look great that way! I wonder if they would work as little doggie toys?

    Now you need to make some wrapped clothesline baskets. Need 1/2 to 3/4 in. wide strips. Book "It's a Wrap" has good directions. I do not remember if she used spray adhesive or glue stick, but glue stick is easier on the lungs. I put my strips in a basket and they are ready for a scrappy basket. If I have 1" strips I put those in a drawer for the centers of the scrappy asterisk quilt I started. Search this site for the pattern.
    Happy Scrapping :)
    Oops, didn't see that last post.

    If you have fleese selvages roll them then stitch all raw edges so you have a ball. My dogs love these and they last a long time and do dot fray. Cats would love them to.

    Not crazy at all! I have a few, although I didn't roll them, they came that way, but mine are tied (homespun)
