One of the needs of a dedicated craft person is, to have super scraps. They are affordable, take up less space, and if you are a shopper.....you can find many vintage fabrics at yard sales or flea markets. I couldn't live without them and sometimes I make my own! Some quilters only buy quarter fats, that's precut quarter of a yard of material, I say buy bulk and measure later!
Here is a list of the top five crafts that are useful for any leftover scrap:
1. Wall hangings and quilts
2. Pillows and rugs
3. Doll clothes and character embellishment
4. Stuffed plushies and beanie babies
5. Ornaments and Christmas stockings
Wool scraps are useful for penny rugs or braided rugs, cotton is the primary fabric for tied wreaths or segmented stuffed wreaths, reserve sheers for pillows, and almost anything goes for anything else!
So remember, when you see a large lot of little fabric pieces and the price is right, it might be you don't need them, but you want one striking pattern out of the bunch, buy it. It can't hurt.
