Charles has wanted one of these for years! And I have been putting it off, until now. This was really easy to make, and now that I made it, I feel silly for putting it off for so long.
It's a benefit from doing the circlequilt. While cutting scraps for that, I am also cutting 5'' squares - they then don't count as scraps anymore - and setting strips aside. It makes my scrap box(es) much easier to manage!
Edited to add:
These are my scrap boxes, I like this kind because they are stackable and they have lids. I got them from IKEA :)
The 2 larger boxes was once sorted in cool and warm colors - but that didn't last long!
So...this is how I have my scraps. I then have a small stack of 5'' charms in my fabric cupboard - but they are not really scraps, right?!
