Over the summer I had a fortuitous encounter with Freecycle. I posted a request for fabric scraps, and was answered by a lady whose grandmother had collected BAGS of scraps from her lifetime of projects. (BAGS = 5 large black trash bags full). Some of the scraps were tiny, less than 1"x1", while there was yardage of others. There was even a kimono in there. Boo yah. Let the games begin.
My first job was to sort everything (loosely) by "color" - I wish I had taken a picture to show you my billowing piles of blues, greens, pinks/oranges, yellows, denims, flannels, polyesters (yuk), stripes, and faux furs. I sorted for hours.
Then came the fun part ... doing something with these scraps!
Our garden was bountiful at the time, so I had vegetables on the brain ...
