Hi everyone!!!

I can't throw fabric away, even if it is one inch square.  As a result, I have bags of scraps!  I thought that I'd post some pictures of some purses that I've made in the last few months using leftover pieces of fabric...perhaps this will inspire others to dig into their scrap stash and keep saving those scraps!









Scraps!  Free, eco-friendly (reusing!)...what's not to love?

Thanks for looking!!  Let me know what you think!

I want to hit up your scrap stash!  Nicely done.  And yes, it does inspire me to use my leftovers.  I really love all 4 to be honest!

Cute bags. I'm the same way about throwing away fabric.

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.

Those are fantastic!  I am going to have to go through my stash of scraps and see what I can put together.

First, let me say I LOVE your post title!!  So funny  Cheesy

But, more importantly, your bags are adorable!  And I am the same way about throwing away scraps (but have to admit that I sometimes DO throw away some, because I just can't fit ALL of them in my fabric closet  Roll Eyes) and do have a guilt-trip about it.  Thanks for the inspiration to use up those scraps, no matter how random or small.  Smiley
