The idea would be to make a project entirely out of those little bits of fabric/yarn/string/sticks etc. you have laying around the house leftover from previous crafting adventures.  You are not allowed to buy ANYTHING for this project (with the possible exception of glue) and preferably the materials will all be actual leftovers from projects you've actually done (not a yard of fabric you bought but never used for anything).  Even better if it's made out of pieces that  seem too small to be useful, but that you just couldn't bear to throw away Wink

Very interesting.... my scraps tend to be of shards of glass and bits of metal though--I assume that would still count.

Who doesn't have all kinds of stuff hanging around just for a reason such as this?
I know I have plenty I can't bear to part with, for no real reason.

That is good idea probably most of crafsters have a lot of mix media bits and pieces. Count me in.

I was just going to suggest this challenge, but you already came up with it.  I have so many odds and ends!
