A V-wonderful Friday Evening..

What a great evening/night. I hung out with BumbleBeans and I actually PLAYED...It has been so long since I just sat at a machine, dug in a bin of scraps and sewed them together without a thought.  Oh soo relaxing after a long work week.  (Remember Thanksgiving week was a short work week, smiles).


I used the wonderful make fabric concept that is the essence of this site.  So for those that need a quick refresher, a picture is indeed worth a thousand words.

This is how it begins...


Then you start to see this.



Time to cut it up even more....this is about cut number three...oh soooo much fun just slashing away.


Then I left and went home.  Allegedely to go to bed to get up early.  But it called me back.


And I was not tired till I was able to see these....



And that is a lovely 15 minutes of Play....I wonder what these will become...Thanks V...a great time.

Love what you do - the concept and the results. I've been gearing up to try my hand at it. Finally,today I sat down with piles of 1.5" strips - I want to get rid of them! I started just playing - even took a photos of the pile just like you did! But here's my hang-up. YOUR scraps are zippy and fun. Mine are mostly older fabrics-I do have newer fun fabrics but they are not scraps. My 'fabric' won't be like yours. See, I really need this exercise. My stuff today will probablky be potholders.
I'll keep you posted!

Jean yes you can. If you have older scraps, use those and pick one or two brights from your stash and cut it up. Victoria takes what we call "good, whole fabric" and chops it up to use for "scraps".

I know scary thought, but im jumping in with it. Try one or two pieces and your blah scraps will become hooray. Smiles
