It's Scraptastic Tuesday again, and I have a couple of little projects to show you today. I worked on two scrappy projects this past weekend, and I think both of them are going to see some more friends, when I get back into my sewing room.
At the retreat, two workshops were presented, both of which I figured I could easily do from my scrap bins. The first was placemats. These are made from 2.5" strips of fabric and 1.5" strips of leftover batting. Perfect! I have so many batting strips around my room, I was thrilled to have a way to use them up. I grabbed a handful of blue & beige fabric strips from my 2.5" bin, and a bunch of batting to take with me. I figured I had enough for at least a couple of placemats, to get me started. Well, apparently I don't judge fabric amounts very well. I had enough to make this one placemat, with a few bits & pieces left over. I do like the result, and I figure I can pull out some more fabric and make a few more of these pretty quickly. I still need to bind the top and bottom of this one.
