It's so nice to work from the scrap box, especially when it's for learning purposes. I don't feel as though I'm wasting the good fabric on something that isn't intended to be seen - I'm not sure if that makes sense now I've written it down, it did in my head...
My latest project from Curves Class is the Improv Curves notecards. A project perfect for scraps, learning to 'go with the flow', cutting without measuring and being allowed to make mistakes - it's improv, you can't make mistakes!!!!
I raided my scrap box and found this set of swatches that had been hiding away
|fabric swatch = fabric scraps|
and after some cutting and sewing they morphed into this mini sample
and then another joined in with the fun
|more curvy seams|
It was quite liberating to cut haphazardly and for it to be ok not to turn out as expected. My two samples turned out approx 4"x 4" square instead of the 4.25"x 5.75" it was meant to be - cutting those curves eats away at more fabric then you would think.
I can see making these could become quite addictive they are quick and fun, I'm looking forward to giving the log cabin style block a go over the next few days.
I'm sorry the photos are pretty awful in this post, even though there is still copious amounts of snow on the ground here the light has been terrible for taking photos inside, these are the best of a bad bad bunch!
