I hate to get rid of things. What if someday I need them again and can’t get new ones? Doesn’t really matter what it is, I hate to part with it. So fabric scraps have become a challenge for me. At what point are they too small to keep?
After making my “Exercise Block” out of scraps, I had scraps left over from my scraps. What to do?
That block is the same size as the Exercise Block, so I figured I better do two of the side blocks as well.
I decided it would look cute as a rectangular bolster pillow, but since it was an odd size, I wouldn’t be able to get a pillow form for the inside. So, I sewed the three parts of each side together, backed it with flannel and lightly quilted them. Then I sewed the two sides together into a pillow and stuffed it. With what, you ask? All the scraps and thread that I had been saving for the last two months in a plastic bag! My scraps weren’t enough to fill it, so for now I’ve left the last side open and will continue to use it as a scrap bag till it is full and can be finished off!
