Put your Scraps to work

In February I decided to attack those scrap bins again and make something!  Once again, I sewed in assembly-line style and made a batch of finger (or thumb) pincushions.  Aren't they great?  I finished sewing them on the weekend.


The tutorial I used is here.  Try it - you will become as addicted as I am!   Even though I made 14 of these little things (I actually made 17 but have given several away in swaps), my scrap bins don't look any less full than they did before!  C'est la vie!


I "put my scraps to work" this month - did you!?

I can vouch for how lovely these little pinnies are! Yay!

Apparently you didn't realize that when you take the lid off the scrap bin and let air in, they breed so it never looks any emptier -- (-;
