Scrap tastic….

Sewing means lots of scraps and I hate to waist them – especially as material is so expensive now. So I just loved these little mini Dresden’s as they use even the smallest of scraps. I spent several evenings going through my scrap bag and cutting out shapes. I then sorted these into different colour groups and sewed the little spokes together. As you can see, I have gotten a little carried away!

Finally I found a number of little images to fill the circle shapes that sit on top of the spokes. All that I need to do now is sew around the edges of the circles and remove the tacking threads.

Happy sewing everyone.
