I have so much fabric that I love getting a chance to use all those scraps and small pieces that I hate throwing out...I love that I get to actually make something with them!
I am such a novice when it comes to patchwork and it is definitely a less than precise process, but I keep a little basket of small squares at hand so that I have lots of pattern and colour combinations to put together. I love using a mixture of old and new fabrics, it gives it a bit more of a story...a bit more depth?
As well as the patchwork I have made a few cushions based on the button design...I love the hand stitching on this along side the scrap fabric.
On all the cushions I've made so far I have used old curtains as backing and ikea do a great little cushion inner at a really reasonable price. So good to create something with so much that could be thrown away.To see who I'm linking up with go here!
