Fishbowl Quilts & Pet Beds
A while back I posted about fabric storage and I shared a picture of the fishbowl I keep my smallest scraps in:
I’m currently in the midst of designing a project for the Spring semester at WCTC and it is in part a “fishbowl quilt”. The quilt is called Black, White and Bright and there are going to be numerous brightly colored, paper pieced, flying geese (perhaps I should call them flying fish) strips in it. I pulled all the bright hunks out of the bowl and have actually used some of them up!!!
As I cut off pieces too small to save I put them in a bag under my sewing table
and when I’ve filled enough bags, these schnibbles will all be sewn into an old pillowcase and donated to the local animal shelter as a pet bed. No waste!
I shared another fun use for the fishbowl scraps in a post over a year ago. If you need a smile, please click here :-).
Do you keep your schnibbles in a fishbowl? Do you have a better option?
