Finally!

I am as frugal as they get when it comes to my fabric scraps, I only throw pieces away once they are smaller than a 2" x 2" size. I sort each scrap meticulously by size with hopes of finding the perfect use for them. This usually isn't hard with cottons but oilcloth has had me stumped for a while now. I sort oilcloth scraps a little differently according to lunch bag pieces they can become. Once they are smaller than a square-pocket or handle-strip size I toss them in a box together.
scrap project
(yes, this messes with my OCD nature)I walk past the box and it gives me anxiety because I can't toss it...you never know if you'll need it!
Finally, it dawned on me. I know it's not rocket science or a brilliant idea but I am so excited to use up these scraps:
scrap project
Thank you tags for my lunchbag orders! As a bonus, I use up ribbon scraps as well. This is therapeutic crafting at it's best.

I am super-excited to see my sister http://debnstuff.blogspot.com/ and family today, it's been a long time. Julia and I just made this yummy edible bouquet for an appetizer:
yummy bouquet
My boss gave me the idea, so I can't take credit for it but isn't it pretty?
Grape tomatoes, fresh mozzarella balls, and basil leaves on skewers. Just stick them in a pretty vase and serve with some olive oil for drizzling...YUM!

Your tags are cute and that edible bouquet is fabulous. I'm experiencing fabric anxiety at this very moment. Calamity Kim posted about Heather Bailey's new mermaid fabric (I LOVE mermaids) today and I'm trying to figure out how much fabric to buy. My goal is to make a mermaid quilt, but I think I need to think about the design before I go nuts ordering fabric and my stash grows too large and threatens to smother me. Oh, what to do...what to do. I like my stuff to be nice and neat just as you do.

I'm nuts about your tags! I have trouble parting with scraps, and have a bin full of them. Just waiting for something. I love this idea!!!

Love your edible bouquet too!

Kristin said...

Such a brilliant idea for scraps! I just threw out a big bundle of scraps (less than 2x2, but it still killed me). next time I'll make up some tags or cards with them to send out for birthdays or holidays. So creative. :)

LOVE the food bouquet too! :)

Good idea on the tags and the "bouquet" looks very impressive and professional.
Cheers,
