Frugal Fabric Fridays

Well thank you all for the responses, 'Frugal Fabric Fridays' have been born!
My aim is to show a fabric based craft or sewing project each week which uses either fabric scraps, or some sort of yardage which no more than 1 metre in length. This will include knits, wovens, fleece, faux fur, leather scraps etc depending on what inspiration strikes me.

My intention is to use the scraps and remnants already in my posession since I genuinely want to use them up. I'm very excited about this project because its about using our resources wisely, about creativity, about creating useful things from stuff you might have thrown away and about having fun. I will try to edit out the naff projects but the odd one might sneak through :-).

Will you accept contributions?

Don't edit too much. You know the saying, "One man's trash is another's treasure." You may not think it's so great but someone else may.
