scrap bag

look at this scrap bag goodness. My scrap bag is growing out of all control, so I've been thinking of ways that I can truly be economical and use up all of scraps.
This little collection of birds were formally scraps - I will make quite a few of these in the run up to Christmas to sell at my fairs and in my shopI've also been experimenting and making pom poms, which will also become part of some more Christmas themed items I'm working on
I couldn't not share this pic of some lovely fabric I have purchased recently. This will become cushions - hopefully I'll get to make a start on these this weekend. Here is some lovely inspiration on flickr

Ooh, I love those birdies - so charismatic! There is so much birdy loveliness in blogland and it was the inspiration for my little enamelled birds. Are you selling these yet? I want some for my christmas tree. Sweet pom poms too.

Those are going to be some stylish curtains.

I love the little birds - especially the one with pompom feet!

Oooh I love your little birdies - so cute! Those fabrics are gorgeous too and that's a great link to those very yummy cushions.

Wonder if I can get away with sewing some cushions today instead of stopping the kids killing each other?....
