I got a couple big ziploc bags full of old quilt scraps at a flea market probably 7-8 years ago. I went through them meticulously, sorting all of it. I hand washed and dried every piece and stored them in a huge acid free photo box.
Of course, my very favorite of all the scraps was one tiny strip, a little over an inch long and less than 1/2" wide. It's so small, I never could figure out what to do with it.



But today I thought about the marble magnets I made not too long ago and figured I could apply the same process to fabric. I think I'll use them in a jewelry project though, because I really want to wear these, lol.

they look great Smiley I've got a ton of those flat marbles laying around and got bored with them. This is giving me a few ideas. Btw, Hobby Lobby has a bracelet blank that you can glue the marbles to. I've had one laying in the bottom of my bead drawer for awhile....me thinks it's time to go experiment!! Cheesy

They look SOOooo great in the way you phototed them..with that circle being formed in the corner....if you can keep them like that it would be cool

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know
