Scrap Pillow

{saved from the bin}

If you’ve read my blog for a bit, you know I’m crazy about using up all the little leftover scraps of fabric that I can. Why send them off to a landfill where no one can appreciate them? So after I made the Happy Hour Tote recently, I knew I’d end up making another little scrap pillow with the leftover tiny squares and long strips of fabric. This pillow only measures a whopping 9.5″ x 8.0″, but I think it may be perfect for cheering up a friend.

So instead of sharing a fun new project with you today, I challenge you to find a use for something you’d instinctively throw out. The result may not be perfect {::cough:: this pillow}, but it will be a good use of your time. I promise. Now I think I’ll go thank myself, on behalf of the environment, with a big bowl of ice cream … and perhaps I’ll multi-task & draw up one of those tote bag patterns I’ve been promising. Kampai!

    I think this is so absolutely adorable! I could definitely use one of these on my chair instead of using my sweater (that keeps falling off the chair). Yay for recycling! :-D

  2. What a beautiful pillow!
