Considering I'm quite scrap-phobic (arghhh clutter, clutter, clutter!) ... I've been trying to turn a new leaf and be more considerate of my scraps (because they have feelings). Mostly I still toss them (gasp!), but slowly and surely, I'm beginning to use them.
I'm a member of the Perth Modern Quilt Guild and our latest growth spurt means there are a lot of new names to remember ... something I'm not good at! So I was happy to join the Name Badge Swap.
I can only show you the back of the badge I made as my partner hasn't received it yet ...
|Work in progress|
I didn't stop at the badge though ... I decided to make my swap partner a little something extra with all of these beautiful scraps.
I decided to take my own advice and just make what made me happy ... and this little needle book is the result!
|I used some more Free Spirit tape for the closure|
|My version of improv ... wonky ...|
|Some happy yellow dots for inside|
|... and I shared some of my new wonder clips from my latest Massdrop purchase :)|
It was fun to try something new with scraps! I'm not addicted to everything scrappy yet ... but I'm starting to gain a healthy appreciation of them :)
