I am a self confessed fabric scrap junkie. I can hardly bring myself to throw away even the smallest pretty scrap of fabric. I am just sure that I can find a use for each and every piece. I mean, how traumatic is it while in the midst of a project you realize that such and such scrap would have been perfect, but alas, you tossed it out??? Up until the last few weeks, I really DIDN'T have any use for scraps. They just sat in a bag, overflowing actually, in the corner of my sewing room. Then I discovered patchwork! Fun stuff, ladies and gents. My first patchwork project was The Kidlet : Wall Pocket - Tidy Tote, a super cool freebie pattern and tutorial from Jennifer of JCasa. Smitten from then on, I've being working on what I call Petite Patchwork Pouches. (I now have labels/tags for my stuff!)
Here is a bit of Flickr Patchwork inspiration:
