Had a look in my scrap basket today and decided it was getting a bit out of control. It may not look full, but it's a big basket - you don't want to see how much fits in it when it's full.... Anyway, as I had the day off and intended to spend a large part of it sewing or doing other sewing type things, I decided it was time to trim scraps.
These little boxes (which fit in little frame things) hold my scrap squares - 5" is the largest size (the boxes are essentially 5" square anyway) and they go down in half inches, until the last one, which is "smaller than 2" square). But not much smaller - I don't keep the teeny tiny stuff.
Here's what a few of them looked like before I started cutting - not too bad.
Here they are again, when I'd finished,
here's the scrap basket
and here's the pile of strips I added to my bag of scrap strips
which is looking a little full. Guess what's next on my to-do list!
