It did feel a little funny though making so many things out of the same 2 pieces of fabric! Really gets your brain going for placement to make things look a little different!

i agree 100%.  that’s why at least two of my items are reversible.  but it is still pretty matchy matchy matchy. Smiley

Ya I tried to twist and turn the pattern as much as possible to change it up a bit! SO I have 7 things made that are under and inch in size Grin I love my glue gun lol Then 3 things sewn up just one needs a string.... and I think as long as the one item works the way I want it to I will literally have ZERO scraps leftover... Who's an over-achiever.... this girl right here hehehe

Teaser photo.  I have finished crafting with my FQ's, and this is what I have left over (with a spool of thread for size reference).  It's not even technically scraps; it's more the trimmings from some of the seams I trimmed (and I used some of those, too).  I even used the selvedges!  Cheesy

I'm so excited to get started here!  And I love that picture, A2JC4life!  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.  Smiley

I've mapped everything out this morning and will probably do most of the work this weekend.  I still have some crocheting to finish up for another swap first, but I'm already looking forward to putting down the yarn and getting back to sewing.

A2JC4life I don't even have that left! But what an awesome teaser..... really makes me start wondering what kinda pattern is on the fabric! If I was your partner I'd be incredibly curious!

I just finished my "big" item! Turned out Exactly as I had planned!!!! Only 3 more things to sew with the sewing machine then I gotta stuff, embroider and handsew my little heart out!!

I thought about slapping those trimmings between a couple layers of clear vinyl.  But then I couldn't figure out what I'd do with that. lol

All boxed up here and ready to go.  I'm hoping that one item, in particular, didn't get too smashed inside the box.  I couldn't really see inside the box very well while I was trying to situation everything.  Undecided

They're not long enough.  The longest one left is maybe 2" long.  Most are shorter than an inch.

Add a hanging string and you have a window decoration!  LOL

But i know what you mean - I'm down to snippets and am not sure if I can do anything else.   Grin

I'M DONE!!  I managed to squeeze two more mini projects out of my scraps.  The remainder has been so manipulated, I don't think there is anything else I could do with it!  I'll be sending tomorrow!!

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
