I've told you before about my inability to throw even the teeniest scrap of fabric away. You just never know when it is going to come in handy.

Even scraps as tiny as this...

...can be made into something like this...

Now, I would never cut into my treasured Cloud 9 fabric just to make a card, but when all I need to do is bend down next to my desk and sift through the scraps, it's like finding the perfect jewels. If ever I was tempted to tidy up and throw away all these scraps, this has certainly convinced me to be less hasty.

I save all my teeny scraps too. Very handy for covering buttons!

I also find it so hard to throw away scraps, but now I'm drowning in them! Time to make some scrap bags for other clever people like you to play with, I think.
PS: Also a huge fan of Cloud9 fabrics

I have bags and bags of scraps, but I knoe that if a throw out the smallest piece, that will be the perfect piece that I need for a project !

My minimum save size is 1.5" square, so I can at least use them in postage stamp quilts! They're pretty useful for making cards etc too.
