Scraps

I have a quilt to bind & decided i'd make a scrappy binding based on the fabrics in the quilt as all the fabrics in the quilt came from my scrap bag. This is how they were stored.
I usually just tip it all out & sort through to find what i want. I had been using this bag because without a sewing room i don't have the room for lots of containers. Today i decided i'd find room somewhere, somehow & went off to the cheapie shop. 6 baskets & a couple hours later & this is the end result.
No more tipping the scraps out & then having to stick them back into the bag.

Happy stitching,

I love it! I need to do that - mine are in a clear plastic tote but it's impossible to find anything. Is that an Aldi's tote you had them in?
