Slow Sunday Stitching

Kathy, at Slow Sunday Stitching, is keeping me on a wonderful, relaxing pace.

I have finished Aunt Bea’s Parlor, block 6.

And I am continuing to  work on scrap control.

The black, gray and white scrap bags are sorted and cut into various usable strips.

I am sorting the green scrap bag.

What a tedious job.

Please don’t let me allow my scraps to take over ever again!

Scrap Bags

Organizing my scraps by storing them in color coded fabric baskets has been on my To-Do List for quite some time.

I wanted quick and easy baskets to make.  No handles, zippers, cardboard or plastic inserts, magnets or Velcro.

Pam, over at Threading My Way, posted a fabric basket tutorial that fit my need.  I changed the size of the bag (mine is larger), and I used Timtex, since I already had that on hand, and wanted to use it up.

Now that the scraps are no longer “out of sight; out of mind”, I hope to use them more in projects.  It will certainly be a lot easier to find them!

And I like the way the bags look on my shelf, too!
