As the title asks, where do you keep your scraps? Fabric ones specifically. And what is the smallest size you will keep “just in case”?
My current sewing table is an old oak computer desk that I’ve had probably close to 30 years now. It’s made many many moves with me. Has served as a school desk, gaming computer desk, storage, space hogger, and now is functioning as my sewing desk.
You can’t get too much more sturdy than a solid oak desk for when you really get flying on that sewing machine!
And as any really good desk (old one anyway) would have, there is a handy drawer on the right side that is perfect for tossing all those scraps into!
Scraps from crazy squares. Scraps from wallhangings. Scraps that started out as a project, then I went “well crud” and they got tossed in the drawer. (This is an old picture, the drawer is MUCH fuller now!)
I think the smallest I keep is one inch wide and at least one inch long.
Some day, those scraps will be put into use in…something. Maybe a scrappy wallhanging? A scrappy baby blanket for a friend/relative? A scrappy quilt for the guest bedroom? Who knows!
What is the smallest YOU will keep? And where do you keep it?
