Have you heard this old adage? A farmer friend of mine used to say "Eat it up" for the first line! It goes like this:
Use it up,
Wear it out,
Make do or
Well, recently, I had a novelty print fabric with some cute turtles on it and decided to 'use it up'. I titled this post "One FAT quarter" but, as I think of it, I believe there was more like a third to a half yard of it. I really didn't mark it down. Anyway, I strive to not have leftovers, so I spent the afternoon using up this particular piece of fabric! Look at what I ended up making--of course, by adding a few other fabrics from my stash!
Two (2) crayon roll-ups with a matching fabric, two (2) little 'Anything Bag' zipper pouches (one I gave to my sister) and a pillowcase edging using some white fabric that I also had. I did a post on Friday about the pillowcase, titled "Last but Not Least" which strikes me now as funny and so appropriate since it is a pokey turtle! The remaining items are now available in my shop.
It was a fun afternoon and I felt like I had accomplished something! When is the last time you felt that way?
