Little Luscious Leftovers


When I am done piecing a project and have little pieces of fabric that are too small to do piecing with this is what I do.

I place them on a sheet of Wonder Under. I cover it with a sheet of the Wonder Under release paper I have left from another project so the exposed parts of the Wonder Under don’t stick to my iron.  Then I fuse them with my iron.

And what do I do with these small pieces? I do cut them out so there is no WU hanging off the edges.

I may make a fused composition myself, but for the most part I stockpile them for friends to make a composition when they visit me. House guests have done some great pieces, as have students in classes I have taught. My stockpile is low right now so it is a good time to make more components for friends to use.

I also will be fusing some larger pieces so others can cut shapes they desire to use.

I have a stock of bases made up for others to work on.

It’s always fun to see the designs people come up with, especially the ones who don’t think they are creative.

What a great idea--I throw away so many small "useless" pieces. I am going to do this from now on--guess I better buy a big supply of WonderUnder--is that your favorite web?

What a great idea! I do that if I want to use smaller pieces on purpose for something but never thought of doing it "ahead of time" just in case. Awesome!
