Its the #IGQuiltFest2023 day 10 #upcycling Recreate. reduce, reuse, recycle, rework, rewear. I do keep all the scraps and even the threads when creating projects and upcycle and reuse them to recreate even more projects.
I have a modus operandi when working in the studio and work according to size from large to small. Every different size has a specific technique for the pieces.
The pieces go into different "scrap" bowls as I work and at the end of the day they get sorted into the relevant containers. Nothing gets wasted.
This is really becoming quite addictive. I am not managing to throw anything away. Autumn remnants from other projects, too small for patchwork
so I added them to the autumn mix
and created this piece of ScrapFabric
It can be an art quilt piece as is, used as a foundation piece for more artwork or as quilted fabric to create a purse or a bag or even a fabric bracelet.
You know that pile of threads that gets entangled in your scraps? Well instead of throwing them away I collected them and this is only a small part of what I found.
Having all sorts of interesting thoughs of what to do with them.
My progression of neverending fabric
