My scrap pile keeps getting smaller. I keep a jar next to my sewing machine and another one in my handstitching kit. As I clip threads I toss them in the jar. My original intent was just to keep the floor clean, but I became very intrigued with how it looked, so I got a big jar and kept filling it up. Today I was looking around for something to put underneath this sheer layer of fabric and stuffed some of the threads in. After slashing the top layer the threads are revealed and add texture, color and dimension.
