Scrappy Fun

I finally felt the desire to sew and craft again. It feels like it has been forever! I am in a Whedonverse swap over on Craftster. Plus I have that custom order whose fabric is now all here - yippee! That kind of sewing I don't need a "desire" for since they are already designed & I have been looking forward to starting it. Maybe that's why I haven't felt like doing anything else...didn't want anything to interfere once it was time to start. I would love to show & tell the fun goodies I have been making for the swap, but I want to keep it a surprise. But I can share what my new found crafting bug did bring me...

After sorting through my fabric & sending half off to my 2nd Etsy shop for destash & organizing the rest...I was still left with all the bits & pieces. That box above is about 2 feet long & almost 1 foot wide...and filled to the brim with scrap. I have not idea what to do with all of it, but unless is less than a 2 inch square, I can't just throw it away. So I started playing around and made a couple ribbon bookmarks with scrap pieces on either end...and some buttons...love the buttons! I think I may make more of these, hopefully getting them to a point where others may want them. But for now - they are all mine :)









Okay...here's one piece of the swap...since you can't tell what the whole is
...think of it as a teaser...
