With Little Letters, I was making up the pieced borders in my head and had no idea how many pieces I'd actually wind up using. I wound up with a little pile of nine-patch bits. It was hardly any fabric at all, and even I could have tossed it out without feeling a pang of guilt.
But my mind doesn't work that way. I sewed them together and within the hour, I had a new mug rug.
Sure, I could have tossed those bits. But it feels a lot better to make something cute with them!
What do you do with your leftovers? Toss them, or make them into something.....or save them for "someday?"For more finishes, check out Sew Much Ado, Finish it Up Friday, Can I get a Whoop Whoop?, , and Freedom Fridays, Wonderful at Home Sew Can She
