Another use for my skinny fabric scraps–a rooster!
This handsome fella started out as a quick sketch…
Which I cut out and traced onto felt.
Then I added those skinny strips to make his feathers and added a mile of thread! (Actually, I didn’t measure the thread.)
Here’s the palette I used…
His face is all threads so it’s smoother.
The chicken wire is quilted with my favorite silver thread, Fil-tec.
Today I started preparing for a demo I’ll be presenting at our quilt show in August. I’ll be using skinny strips of fabric, the size that usually go into the trash, and recycle them into cute little bags, like these.
Skinny strip bags
Now I have plenty of scraps that don’t fit in the category of “skinny strips” so I started playing with those as well. I used chunky scraps to make this one. While I was making it my thought was to cut it up for projects or quilt blocks. I really like it as is so it may become a wall hanging.
Crazy fat quarter
Then I used strips from a bag of scraps I purchased (uh, yeah, I didn’t have any of that line in my stash) a few years ago, to make this one. I like how it turned out, not sure how to use it yet.
Strippy fat quarter.
Playing with scraps has been a great way to spend the end of my vacation!
