scraps come together

Remember those little scrap strips from the last post?

 They were wrapped around some clothesline cord...( about 33metres of it )

Then stitched together ...using a zig zag stitch on my machine..
It grew... and grew ...

and grew some more!....

Until it was big some handles and became a bag!

All ready for an outing to the stitches and craft show in Newcastle tomorrow!

I followed instructions in a book called "It's a Wrap" by Susan Breier.

It certainly was a fun project and one I have been going to do for a few years now....
I love it so much...I think there will be a few more.
I just love using scraps...
I have always wanted to do a scrappy rug too.....stay might be next!

Till next time
keep stitching
