Bag of scraps

I find it difficult to toss even small scraps of Love and delightful fabric. But when  it comes to making blocks of them I'm quite pleased to see a 6.5" size come together quite quickly.
I appliqued some hearts on a few, intending to sash them and make a small quilt.
But my young niece needed a librarybag and likes hearts, so I kept making squares until I had 18 and made this one for her:

My sister in law saw it and said she'd like one too. So what's a quilter to do, but use up more scraps. The straps this time darker, handles do get a lot of use, so darker colours don't show the dirt quite so much. 

I'm enjoying these, might have to check out my fabric for some favourites for myself. I think the bag I use the most for sewing bits and pieces may be showing some wear itself. I can't even remember when I made it.

Scraps may be a plenty, but bags are a great way to use some up.

Until next time,

  1. How fun are these bags?? All those hearts will be sure to remind your niece and SIL that they are well loved by a quilter :)
