I've had an alteration business for a number of years and have accumulated alot of scraps. For some reason, I just can't bear to throw away those wonderful fabric cut off from prom dress hems or other fabulous garments. I know one day I will use them for something!
Well after a few years of alterations, they were starting to create a big heap in the corner of my sewing room so I came up with a solution. IKEA!
I bought two bookshelves with matching boxes and now my scraps have a home. Each box contains a different color and now when I just need a little something for a embellishment or a small project, I head to the scrap box and pick out something fabulous!
I hope this tip will come in handy for you as well! Tomorrow's tip - Getting a grip on your trims.
