I decided it was high time I cleaned up my sewing room! I do like order and cleanliness, I really do. However, it would seem like there is a little devil in my room when I want to create a new design. It must make sure to pull out every scrap of fabric I have and scatter it about so that is not a bare spot in the room. Spools of thread scatter and scissors are buried some where underneath the piles. Sparks of creativity then seem to flow. I manage to get something sewn, not always am I happy with the results. This then goes in the pile of I will do something with it later. There is a pattern here, I can’t bear to throw out fabric!

If I make a quilt or pillow shams and there are scraps left, I know I will do something with it later. Later is here and I decided a good use for some of the scraps would be purses. Quite a few of them that I made lately I don’t have here to take pictures of and share with you. Our youngest daughter was home for the holidays taking a break from¬†college and she felt it her duty to help me out by taking them with her.

The purse pictured above is from scraps left over from making quilted pillow shams a couple of years ago. Yes I knew I wouldn’t let that go to waste! Success!

The lace was left over too. However, I had to buy some grey fabric to line it with. It is a vicious circle huh!  I would like to only buy as much fabric as I need at a time, there is that devil again.
