First of all, I must add my disclaimer:
"No my name isn't Frannie, and by no means am I starting an advice column, and no slight is intended to anyone named Frannie or to anyone who has an advice column!"
But I do consider myself very "frugal" - not a hoarder, just keep things that I might use later! (by the way, I DO throw away fabric that is less than 1 1/2" square!)
But I was just "pleased as punch with myself" and wanted to share and give ya'll a laugh!!
Well, I have been stitching away on some small quilts and what's a girl to do with the little strips of batting left over? Well, Frugal Frannie just couldn't throw them away so she thought and thought and thought some more - put the strips in a pile and thought some more...
Then Frugal Frannie had an idea!!! Make stuffing!!!!
So, she lined up the strips into handable (not a word I know - but hey this is Frannie talking! and Frannie likes order!) piles:
Then with the handy dandy rotary cutter (love the person that invented this - why didn't I think of it!! LOL) and large ruler, cut the piles of strips into smaller strips (about 1/4" wide):
Then turned the handy dandy cutting mat (love it, too!) and using the rotary cutter, cut the narrow strips into about 1/4" squares.
Then with the edge of the ruler scooped them into a nice pile,
and put them in a box!
Took less than 5 minutes total to do this!! And boy do I feel good about my tip!!! (LOL)!!!
This really is just to show ya'll that I have been stitching!!! The results to come soon!!
