This is what I thought I might do with those half yard pieces:
1. Line bags. I don't make bags, they do a real good job at the store. Although I have put that Marcy Tilton bag pattern in and out of my shopping cart 47 times over the last 24 hours. Which is often.
2. Make a quilt. What sort of quilt would combine dress fabrics, pants pieces, and cottons? Besides I am a quilting drop-out and would probably only get into quilting if there was a world wide ban on sewing patterns.
3. Get more creative. You know do one of those Koos outfits with all the pieces. Except these pieces don't go together, I wouldn't have quite enough, and I would go shopping again anyway.
So we threw them out, freeing up more space of course for real fabric purchases.
I think I know myself fairly well but what I know and my sewing ambitions don't always connect at all. Sometimes you would think I was sewing for someone else and some else's real life.
Here are some shots my husband (who is leaving today for three weeks in the near to the Arctic Circle to a place call Deception Bay) took yesterday. This is who I really am, this is the person the clothes need to be made for:
