Put your scraps to work

FairyFace Designs
During 2013, I did more projects than ever before from scraps and FQs rather than a fabric range or purchased specifically for a project fabric. As I'm trying to cut down on my purchases and tidy the stash I already have, the idea of working from my scrap basket for a small project each month, is certainly appealing.
I have already made three co-ordinating scrap baskets this month and I will have to make something for the Sewing Room Swap II over the next two months which could be a scrap project too, so I am going to join in with the scrap challenge over at FairyFace Designs. Many of our bee blocks for the Siblings Together Bee have also been from scraps.

I love using scraps and small pieces of fabrics left over from other projects. Looks like you have a good system worked out ... :) Pat

I too think this is a good idea, but whether I get round to it is another matter. Which pattern did you use for your fab looking scrap basket?
