It's my first WIP Wednesday of the new year, and I have a kind of New Year's resolution project to share! Perfect.
So the Catvent QAL left me with a bunch of awesome scraps that were conveniently similarly sized, so I figured they'd be perfect to use together in another project. I was keeping them all together in a little baggie since my normal scrap bin would have taken over the entire dining room, and that baggie got pretty full. So I decided to start stitching them together into some "found fabric" a la Victoria Findlay Wolfe's 15 Minutes of Play.
I didn't want to cut them any smaller, so I would just find pieces that fit together and sewed. When some of those pieces fit together, I sewed some more. And eventually, I got a couple pieces that were decently sized!
I've used up almost all the patterned pieces, and have a bunch more solid scraps, so I'll save those until I fill the baggie up with more prints and make some more squares.
So what's the New Year's resolution? I want to use up those scraps almost as fast as I make them! No more 10 gallon bucket of scraps for me! Fingers crossed...
Linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday and Kelly for Needle and Thread Thursday!
