    Recently someone asked what you do with the cut offs from binding your quilt or what ever. This is what I did with mine. Very easy and looks nice.

    What a great idea. Could even make mug rugs if you only have a few.

    Very Pretty!

    I was thinking when I read the title that I was going to see a purse made with cut off shorts!

    Leave it to this board to keep coming up with ideas. Great job of thinking how to expand on that stash we all have laying around.

    Go for it. Takes care of those small pieces that you don't want to throw away. Just lay the pieces on fold over, add another and keep filling up your piece of batting til you run out of strips or when you get size you want, Thanks for all the positive remarks.

    That's pretty cool!! I'm afraid if I put all mine together, it'd look like someone threw up all over it. There are so many different binding left overs..
