    Great idea!

    My brother takes his tiny scraps or ends and puts them all into old Ball jars with vintage lids. I got one as a gift from the scraps he used to make my scrappy quilt.

    Not only do I have the quilt he made with my scrap fabric from various projects, but I also have the scraps in a vintage jar to remind me of the love that went into his gift.

    A scrap ball that was wound real tight might make a stubborn hubby pay attention next time!

    Yes, or what? I also saw an idea to sew the ends together or those and thin selvidges (less than 1/2 inch or so) and crochet them together. The little balls in a bowl do make for a very appropriate decoration. And just think about the seasonal ideas. Nice!

    Its getting time for craft shows to start. Find a cheap show and use all the ideas given and see what happens. Put some in glass like you have sode,put a price on them. Put some loops on some and hang on a small tree for ornaments, price them, put some in a basket or box and lable cat and dog toys, then put little snippets into zip lock bags and lable for the birds. I think you would be surprised at. What you sell and what did it cost you, table space, some glass vaes from a thrift store and. Some zip lock bags. The recyclers will storm your table as well as others.

    These are for fabric selvages, but I think you could use the end slices just as well.

    I thought about doing the same thing, but I don't think my DH would appreciate it.

    Crazy...as a fox! To me, it's a great way to store the ends until you need them, while decorating your sewing room...neat!
