I am learning that part of this craftiness culture
is a devotion to 'scrap management'.
What to do with the bits and bobs that inevitably fly in the construction of something crafty?
One of the many variation on this theme is the
Noodlehead scrappy pouch
This is my favorite version
it doesn't involve many scraps
mostly new fabric that I snipped with rapture.
Then I made some more.
They are lined with some old quilting squares
So a vague success.
I am always astounded by my ability to mess these things up.
Really, I'm quite gifted at stumbling.
I had to unpick each one for different reasons
they are lined,
they have batting,
there is flipping
and boxed corners
there is even turning things inside out.
On a good day I can turn my underwear right side out
before I've had a coffee.
It's only a matter of time before I sew my hand to my face.
