I have been banned from Spotlight by my husband until I make some more money by selling some of the things I've already made.(Quite rightly so since I always manage to find some fabulous but quite unnecessary fabric that I'm sure I could make something with!). I've decided to look at this positively and see it as a chance to get creative with the fabric I already have (of which I must admit there is quite a lot!).
I decided first to tackle my massive box of scraps. These past couple of weeks I've been watching the Australian Open Tennis, so cutting up my scraps has been something I can do while watching that. I'm cutting squares, rectangles and triangles, some scraps are going in the girls craft box, and the remainder cut up for stuffing.
Today I decided to have a go at putting it together. I've never taken much notice of quilting before, so just spread out the squares and stitched! It seemed to work ok, Then for want of a better thing to do with the finished square, I folded it over, stitched around and stuffed it with the aforementioned stuffing scraps. Hey Presto, Mickey now has a pillow!
I'm sure there are lots more things I can make with these scraps, I guess I just have to get better with choosing and arranging the fabrics for maximum visual effect! Perhaps I'll try cushion covers, bags, pencil cases.... and they won't cost me a penny to make! Perfect!
