Scraps of fabric

What do you do with your fabric scraps?  I hate throwing things out, so I have a drawer with every - and I mean every scrap I've been left with.  Each bit loved SO much I can't bare to throw it out.  Needless to say the drawer is full, no that's an understatement, it's bulging to the point of being crushed within an inch of it's life.

Most recent I have been left with grey fleece scraps from making the new hot water bottle covers.  So after some careful cutting I made this...


A cosy fleece flower for my hair.  Okay, so it doesn't exactly keep my head warm but it sure looks like it does.  It's time for me to pack away all the flimsy, floaty summer accessories and get out the winter woolies - yeah! As some of you will know I'm a hat person so it's my favorite time of year. 

The true fleece colour is closest to the above flower.  Not quite sure what has happened to the two photos below, they've gone a shade of blue? 

I'm really pleased with how the clip has turned out.  I've had a few lovely comments from people too - which is always nice.  As I've dark brown hair, the grey stands out well, also it's my 'colour of the moment'.  I go through phases of favourite colours.  Last time it was turquoise, which goes rather well when teamed with grey, so I'm not completely colourless ha ha.

this is lovely! I am like you - I hate to throw anything out. I even used a piece the size of postage stamp in one of my cards...
