Yes sew, PIF or sell it per box. But yes that looks a bit overwhelming. I have less then half of one small bin and we are sewign it onto adding machine paper to make "new" fabric.

Those are all scraps? I can see why you're overwhelmed. Maybe list them on freecycle.

Would love to see all of them. I could have traded a container of mine for one of yours but have taken care of mine by giving them to a worthy cause.

At least all your scraps are contained. Mine are running over out of paper bags, plastic bags, laundry baskets and of course the ones that are in their correct plastic bins. I am watching this, maybe I will get some ideas.
