As a rule, I always have leftovers.
As a rule, I like to eat ’em up the very next day.
With these leftovers (from here), I made something small and pretty… and inedible.
And then I sent the inedible somethings far away over land and sea to some very special people where I just know they will be loved.
What do you like to do with your leftovers?

They are all adorable!!
I like to put my fabric leftovers in a box so it will be filled with scrappy goodness and once and awhile I make something small and fun.

Oh goodness, Michele, so rustic, elegant, sweet & tailored! How did you fit all those adjectives into a little pincushion? Love them!
Well, your leftover sunshine is being loved here, I can tell you that!

Ooohh! i love it!
They are so sweet! Did you use that fabric stiffener stuff on the sun/flower petals? I keep forgetting that I want to try that.
Thank you so much, Michele. I love my pincushion. It arrived over the weekend. I'm so grateful to you.
Son preciosos!!! tan dulces y delicados. Felicidades por tu gran creatividad.

They're all so pretty.
I store my leftovers for later use. Every so often I'll need a tiny piece of thread, felt, etc. and there it is to help me finish my project.

Thanks tamsininamania for your kind words. How do I do it timewise? That's such a good question. To be honest, it takes a lot of time. I'm still figuring out the whole time-management thing but for the most part I've always got several projects on the go at once, so I can usually find something to blog about. Sometimes I look at my house and think: "Gee, maybe I should clean something." So you see, while I may appear organized on the blog, the reality is a little different than that. 🙂

Well, I am totally in love with your leftovers 🙂 My leftovers sit in a drawer and get used up by my four year old for little projects here and there.

They are all just lovely! I save my leftovers and use them up for little projects. I just can't bare to throw them away no matter how small.
Honestly, these are just about the cutest little pin cushions ever!
Perfect way to use up your denim leftovers.
And I think they would be adorable ornaments!
Love them ^^ I've just finished making one (the simpliest design). Thanks for your sharing.

They are so pretty 🙂
As for my leftovers (the inedible ones)I collect them in hope of making a big scrappy quilt some time (and in the meantime use them for small projects such as makeup pouches)

I like the ones with the running stitch embellishments the best. Lovely!
Such a great idea! This would be a great use for some of my old jeans. 🙂
