Now What?

I've shared about my 3 "furry roomates" before.  But what's a gal to do when the  "chief quilting supervisor" is just too demanding and you want to sew? 


No, you can't have the seam ripper.  I might need it for these stars I'm sewing, and I need it close by.





I save all the little selveges, trim pieces, corners, and slivers of all the fabrics, & battings that I cut with my GO and also when I'm sewing.    Here's the result.



This is one of those LARGE plastic shopping bags...overflowing.


Now What?



Well, you might not think it's very big......so here's another view so you can get some perspective.






Now What?


Grab any old piece of fabric and make a couple quick pillow cases.....any size, any color.  Will this grey polyester work?  Sure.






Now What?


Fill 'em up with those scraps, scatter some catnip inside & sew the ends shut.




Meoooow!  What's this, Mom?   Something new here.   I think I'll check it out.





Ahhhh......these feel pretty good.





Mom's trying to take my picture.  I'll just turn the other way.




She's doing it again.....





At least the scraps are off the floor and the bag is not overflowing!



Now what?



Save some more.........that's what.



Thanks for visiting.

  9. Cute!! That's a great idea! I used some of mine for draft dodgers and some for a floor cushion for my boys' play room...but my cats haven't benefited from any of my trimmings yet! I think they are next.

    Our guild also has a charity they give them too, called "My Brother's Keeper" that makes pillows for the homeless or something...but I don't get them to my guild meeting very often. Thanks for the new idea!
