Sometimes I really annoy myself. I just could not let them go. I had to do one more thing with the tiny scraps. I've made confetti fabric before and usually use it in postcards in some way.
the process starts with a base fabric. This time it was a fat quarter of white fabric but the fabric doesn't matter because I'm going to cover all of it. On the base fabric I fused a layer of Mistyfuse and then spread out my biggest scraps. I covered the fabric with a pressing sheet and fused that layer.
The next layers are:
I think I might use this "new fabric" for Christmas postcards so I added a layer of Angelina fibers, then another layer of Mistyfuse and, finally, I covered the whole thing in tulle.
Here's what it looks like now. Once I decide what to do with it I'll probably do some stitching to hold the layers together.
I've made several postcards with scrap-made fabric. This is one of the most recent ones. I just need to come up with a shape and I'll be ready to make a set of Christmas cards.
I promise you will not see another post about the rainbow scrap bits. The rest will end their days in a dog bed.
You have to admit, it's going to be really pretty in that dog bed.

All those layers and you still have scraps. Too funny. That scrap fabric you made will make some pretty postcards. I know you will add embellishments to make them more Christmassy.

You can fill the glass Christmas ball ornaments with the scraps and they look pretty on the tree

I like Cheryl's idea ... much nicer than a dog bed.

I, for one, will miss the rainbow scraps.
