It’s really nice to see everyone’s fabric scraps
Not only do I get storage ideas, I get ideas of what to make…and I drool a lot…
There is hope that my stash will go down…I am going to give those mosaic blocks a go…I really need larger projects if I am to get rid of volume
So…scrappy bib ftw?
no kidding…a bunch of us older ladies laughed our wine through our noses because we all said we needed bibs to eat anymore…as a gag gift, I was going to make them all scrappy bibs:
but then I was skeered they would really use them!!!
That would be an awesome gag gift (and think of all the scraps you’ll destash!).
Using them in public might be a fashion statement
Y’all are out of control!
Do you save the string/ ribbons from shopping bags? I save mine in gallon freezer bags but like your jar idea better
I think I know what I should try to make with the fabric rope I’m currently making!
Check out this twine wreath that can totally be made from fabric rope instead.
I’m guilty of saving all the random bits and bobs.
Adding to that, I have family and a few close friends saving bits and bobs for me…they drank the kool aid
oh that is a cool idea.
I wonder if I can get a wreath frame like that at the dollar store. I’ve seen wreath making stuff there before. Other wise, I’m sure HL or Michael’s would have it.
The fabric rope would make and incredible wreath…and yes, I have seen wreath frames like in most of the stores…Joann’s even…
Or a thrift store. I’ve seen them at my local creative reuse store.
@SillySlippers. Hey silly!
Ooooo, what kind of shopping bags have string??
I cut all the ribbons out of tops (used to keep on hangers) and use them for hooplahs! They’re the perfect size! And usually the silky shiny ones!
I like the jars because I can see all the sediment layers from different projects. I have more. It’s shameless. Like stained glass, but with thread.
I save them…my yarn and fabric from the UK have lovely ribbons on them…like a drawstring bag…I use the bag as the backing for my new fabric pieces…it is like interfacing…
I also cut tags off clothing…I use those in altered art or as collage items…I think I am a hoarder of supplies for free!
I have ribbon and string and tags for my mixed media art. I just emptied a box of tea bags and the inside of the box has a really pretty design on it so I saved it too!
The shopping bags from Godiva stores are brown string/cord. I also have purple and solid black strings and I think they were from shoe stores.
Ohhhh, I would certainly save and use those!
