After a few big sewing projects my scrap basket is pretty full. I don't want to become a scrap junkie with boxes and bins full of scraps lining my craft room and taking up space in the basement storage room. Mostly because knowing me I would forget, first of all where the extra scrap boxes are and secondly, I wouldn't be able to remember what was in them. By the time I plowed through all the scrap boxes I'm sure I'd lose my motivation to make anything. Therefore, I allow myself a big basket under my work table and a couple of hatboxes. When it starts overflowing it's time to edit. That's when I earnestly start looking for 'little' scrap projects. Because truly it's hard to throw out fabric!
