My Creative Space.
I've got lots of corduroy scraps. Offcuts from bags and skirts. A couple of baskets full at the moment.
Lots of great colours. There's some good sized pieces, nothing too small. But all odd shapes.
I hate to throw them away. They're too good. Most of the scraps are piled up in a basket that sits under the ironing board. Sometimes I'll be inspired to cut up a few bits and make some little purses.
This week I'm trying to sort through them and use up as much as possible. I'm making a bunch of bags, and if I try, I can often find a big enough piece in the scrap basket to cut out a bag base or strap.
But it takes time. It takes longer to go through and find a good sized scrap, than to cut from a nice new piece of corduroy, straight off the roll. So my work is plodding along at snails pace.
Making and sorting at the same time. I guess I'm multi-tasking. In slow motion.
Oh well, if I don't manage to get the bags all finished, at least I'll have a bit more space in my scrap baskets.
