Anything too small to be sewn gets thrown into a big popcorn tin I snagged...I use this bin for altered crafts or ties for packages, etc.  I cut all scraps into 3-1/2 inch, 2", and 1" squares..when I have enough, I do like scrappysue does--make a quilt or bag or something...

I have been sewing and knitting for over 50 years...the key to keeping your body from wearing out is to give it a break!  Stand up, move around, stretch, drink lots of water and antiflammatory foods, hot baths or soaks, chiro, massage, etc.

Too many people just keep on going through the pain!  Pain is a signal that you need to listen to!  Please I want to see you young people crafting when I am 120!! Cheesy

All my little narrow scraps (3/8" to 5/8") get kept until I have a bunch of them, then I knot them together and knit them on big needles. That was when I did quilts, though, and it was easier to accumulate something like that. I got like like a foot into a scarf, but I can tell this is going to be a super long-term project, lol.

I am happy to announce I have completed some projects that I have wanted to do for a long time now.
First up-something white.  I almost bought some earring holders online but I have been trying to "use what I have".  So I looked around and found these white frames buried deep in storage.  Then I remembered this light linen I received that use to be my grandmothers, before she passed away.  So My sentimental earring holder was born.
2- Then  I completed some earrings for Myself.  I remembered why I have not delved into my beads for so long.  I am so indecisive when it comes to making jewelry.  These 7 pair took me almost a whole day to create.

Lastly I was able to cross one more item off of my crafting wish list-  A headband organizer.  I spray painted an empty oatmeal canister.  I need to eat a lot of oatmeal though because I think I need 2 more to have enough for all my headbands. Between my daughter and I we have a lot of headbands.

Great idea with the oatmeal can for the headbands - you just pop them on?  I might have to make one for the kiddo.
How are the earrings on the holder?  Do you have foam or something behind the fabric that it's pierced into?

first off, the earrings are lovely---simple and elegant!

I love that you used what you had---the vintage linen is precious and looks like it came from the 30's...tiny florals!

An oatmeal headband holder...how clever is that!  Do you use the insides to hold barrettes and pony tail holders?

A great destash!

it's great when you can use something you already have to make something to help you organize your things! what a neat idea for the headbands!

I made some cloth pads today. I don't know if it counts as destash, because I had to buy some waterproof fabric to back them. But I made them with fabric and cotton batting I already had.

Pretty neat, I think. The galaxy in my underwear, lol. I don't think they'll look stained because of the color pattern.
I'll probably make more but with a different pattern. I don't like how the wings barely meet at the middle. I think longer ones will be better.

Those are lovely pads!

For the earrings holder I just cut that plastic mesh needlework canvas to the frame inside size and then hut glued the fabric around and all of it into the frame.  I am going to get a little frame easel to rest it on to be able to easily access the front and back.    The Headband holder, when I find the lid will either contain extra tp or be a place to put bows etc in.
