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
