For scraps that you don't know what to do with - keep a bag taped to the table by your sewing machine for your fabric scraps. Next time you wrap a package, use the fabric scraps instead of tissue paper.

If you own a metal cabinet and store quilty things in there (I actually have a huge one that people generally use in a garage), make a design wall out of it by using magnets to hold up pieces of fabric on it.

Well aren't you the smart one! That is a fantastic idea,Trish!! Yes I have a large file cabinet but it's in the corner and I can't get it out. No where else to put it really, wish I could. But I love the idea anyways. Thanks for sharing! Sam

I bought 2 yards of flannel in white and will use straight pins to tac it up on the wall. The pins hold the fabric very well and don't leave a big hole in the wall when you want to take it down. It works great and makes a nice design wall. Hugs, Jan
