I was flipping through my mom's Goodhousekeeping magazine and one of their design/home ideas was to put fabric in embroidery hoops! I know I saw this on here or somewhere else! I wonder if they got it off from here.

This idea has actually been around for a while.  When my sister got married, she gave all of us attendants a lovely gift she made herself.  She took an embroidery hoop and layered potpourri between fabric and lace and then made a bow with the same ribbons she used in her bouquet.

Don't call it trash...I can make something with it!!!

Yeah, this has been kicking around at least since the 70's in one variety or another- I had one that was a kit when I was little that was Bicentennial themed cross stitch...

I love going through my mom's old lady magazines.
I hadn't seen the embroidery hoop thing...but sometimes if I have leftover fabric scraps that I can't throw away I just put them in picture frames I get from the thrift store. It makes for a nice eclectic wall display if done well.
Also, I saw this awesome idea in Good Housekeeping where high contrast wallpaper was adhered along the backing of a dish cabinet that was painted in a complimentary color...
