- What Size scraps I keep
- How I manage them
- What I do with them
I have a SMALL home. No basement, Cars in the garage (yes.. the shipping dept likes cars in the garage)... and we run our business IN our home.
That means I do not have a lot of space for a 'scrap management' system.
Plus.. it doesn't interest me to do that ... it's not how I work.
So my scraps are in THIS basket
Let's look inside
I have plastic bags by color..
Here they are!
I ONLY keep what fits INTO that basket.
Once that basket is FULL I have to either USE them or Give them away!
And for SIZE of scrap that I keep. I do not keep little bits and slivers. I keep fairly large CHUNKS. And I keep 2.5" squares ... and 2.5" strips...
for awhile.. then I sew them up!
Like the patterns I've been giving you in my newsletter..
How do YOU deal with scraps?
Watch for a contest on Tuesday to NAME THE PATTERN!!
