I've gone CRAZY!

I started my new project this week. I have this container of fabric scraps, most of which are pieces that are too small for anything that I normally make. I did find some larger pieces of some holiday prints - I'm not quite sure how they ended up there.

Here are some pictures of the container and it's contents:

It's pretty much just a mess of small fabric pieces of all kinds. I hardly throw any scraps away (as you may be able to tell).

So, I take out my craft fuse interfacing and here is what I find:
The cat (Mimi) has been chewing the edge of the interfacing. Yes, folks, my cat is an addict. She is addicted to GLUE. I have to hide the tape from her - she will eat the entire roll. Obviously, she found this even though I tucked it away where I thought she couldn't get to it.

My plan is to take pieces of fabric from my scrap box and make a crazy patch fabric from it. I pin the pieces on the craft fuse, give it a light ironing to adhere some of it, go across each section just with a straight stitch and then the real work begins with stitching around the edges of each fabric piece. I mostly use a zigzag stitch arounds the edges. I will use varying colors of thread - that way I can use up some of the thread colors that I don't use much too.

Here is a picture of a piece I found from the last time I did this. I made fabric bowls from this piece.

What will I make from the new one? Check back to find out!

Have a great day!

LOL I am using up bags of scrap right now. I have been for a little over a month. The fusable webbing is an excellant idea. I will get some next trip to town.
