I have such gorgeous scraps. The bigger offcuts get popped into a big filing cabinet drawer and then some of the tiny bits get taken to the child care centre and the rest get thrown in the bin.
I hate throwing the pretty scraps out and I am constantly thinking of uses for them so they don't have to go into the big bin and then to the tip.
Now that I've worked out a smock/dress type pattern that I'm happy with, I thought they could be used like blank canvases and I could sew some of these scraps onto them. Applique sort of thing.
Contrasting patterned cord for the back, some vintage sheeting for the sleeves, some crocheted ric rac and a big button.
