Fabric Scraps: Trash or Treasure?

I love fabrics. Yummy yummy fabrics.
There are so many textures, prints, weights, purposes, etc.  Ack, why don’t I work at a fabric store?  (Probably because I would hoard it and not sell a bit of it…)
But after cutting fabric for a project, I’m left with pieces of fabric.
And here comes the troubling question…………“Do I throw these scraps away?”
Ummmm……no.
(Note: This is only part of my scrap pile.)
If the piece is any bigger then my 2 hands together, or is a strip at least as long as my arm…….I hold onto it.  You just never know.  (I know, the voice of a packrat.)
But I do throw away the smaller pieces.  Mostly because my fabric scrap pile was becoming overwhelming.  So a girl has to set up some rules……..even for her scraps. Ha!
Now, for you non-believers who think that scraps are a waste of space, here are a few project ideas that will happily use up some of those fabric scraps.

Love those scraps.
Now do a little spring cleaning in those scrap piles……and make something useful out of them.
