And I'd do it, if I didn't see every bit of fabric that comes into my custody as a challenge.
Like this piece. It's not ugly -- I'd use it in a baby quilt if it wasn't for the texture. I'm not enough of a seamstress (or not experienced enough in vintage fabric) to describe this weave. Let's just say that even I wouldn't put it in a scrap quilt.
So what was it from? Judging by the shape of the scraps, someone wore it. I've felt scarier synthetic fabrics in my life, but I still can't imagine wearing something made from this stuff. I can imagine a snap bag, though.
Neither of these is going in the trash. They're too vintage for me to just toss.
What do you do with vintage scraps when you come across them? If you won't use them yourself, do you pass them along to someone else who will?
