Because I love fiber, I find it very difficult to toss it away, even the little trimmings from the ends that are woven in. I collect them up and put them in a jar – waiting for another use.
Like these knitted heart pins. Except for the pin backs, they are made completely from wool, including the yarn scraps as stuffing!
Sometimes I look at the jar and I remember the projects that I made with a particular yarn. Lovely thought.
How about you? Do you throw away your scraps (whether they are fiber or fabric or something else) Or do you reuse and re-purpose them?
By the way, these lovely brooches are available online, at the Arts Market or at Tea With Gladys.
