I have bags and bags of fabric scraps, you couldn't even really call them remnants.
I have slowly been decluttering the fabric leftovers. It's hard, and I don't seem to get very far when I do try to whittle them down. I get all indecisive and start thinking of what I might be able to use all these scraps for, but the reality is I don't usually get around to using them. I really, really, reaaaallllly need to conquer this.
discarded all the leftovers from that particular project a while back. The top has gone in the donation pile.
There's also the scraps I actually used. I just couldn't get rid of all those scraps without having used some first. I plan to share the project with you tomorrow.
And I have more scraps, sad but true. One step at a time hey?
I realise I need to stop keeping scraps. I try to keep them until a project is finished and that has saved a project more then once, but umm, so many projects don't get finished. And now it's taking a lot of time to get it all sorted out.
I have to talk myself through it again and again and again. Right now I'm explaining to myself that sure, all those scraps could make great cushion stuffing but, there isn't going to suddenly be a shortage of scraps for stuffing if I just throw this lot out. It's okay to get rid of them. And really it's not the kind of stuffing you want for cushions anyway.....GET RID OF THEM. Just get them gone!!!!
Phew. Right they're going. Yes, sometimes I have to give myself a good stern talking to. I can be exasperating.
Do you hold onto your scraps? Do you use them up? I know some of you are really clever at using up little pieces of fabric.
