Something from nothing...

That's what this is!  Remember the pile of strings I trimmed from my wickedly easy blocks?  The ones I started to toss away?  This is what they looked like in reality:

I started sewing them, skinny as they were, between 1-1/2" and 2-1/2" strips just to see what they'd look like.  I had no idea how I'd use them, but when I laid a few of them side-by-side I was surprised at how nice they looked...

So, I started sewing the strips together, again just to see how they'd look, and before I knew it I had made these five blocks...

Not bad for something rescued from the trash! 

Sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. I save my strings too and am amazed that people throw them away! Yours look great!


  2. For me the 'trash' is more fun than the original project. Our playtime creates free flowing art.
