She's a scrapper........

Remember that term?...Haha..so highschool...
Remember this post ? What a waste! So sad!
Well, tonight, I was looking everywhere for my tags that I sew inside my dresses...you see I have this little rascal that runs around my house she stands just above my knee and is bald as can be...yep, that's my daughter Sadie. She is the busiest kid I've ever met. She pretty much destroys my sewing room on a daily basis, and in order to get work done, i pretty much let her. So, tonight while looking everywhere for where she put my tags...I noticed my scrap container, which, remember, i only use one rubbermaid bin, then I make myself go through it, was kind of starting to overflow....so I sat down to go through it and sort it all out...Three piles, scraps big enough to keep, to use pieces on sleeves, doll clothes, cowl scarves, etc...then a pile for hang tags...big enough to use and not throw away but to small for anything else...then lastly, trash..what I'm truly done with and what Ive used all up, pretty much, strings of fabric....however, I don't even throw that away..I have a project in mind I will use that stuff for too....so here it is...so proud ......my three piles..On the left, the keep and use still, the middle for hangtags and on the right..the "trash".
Do you see how small that trash pile is....makes me proud! hahaha! Oh, and those tags, yah, I found them...between my blinds in my sewing room and the window...uh, yah!

These little ones get into everything, my clear ruler and disappearing pen are constantly missing! I'm dying to know what you use the "trash" for because I have trouble throwing the random little pieces and the edges that the serger cuts off but I have no clue what to do with them.

Felicia...those little ones that come oout of the serger can be used for stuffing dolls/animals.
