An old shirt and no scraps too small make up my Valentine's Day postcards this year. The background is an old shirt that belonged to a good friend. I throw my smallest colorful scraps into a basket by my sewing machine. I picked through them and arranged shapes into heart shapes. Here's an old poem I have always loved:
Happy Valentine's Day to you!

I found a few other bits of thread that takes this to a whole new level of thrift. Next is a rolled up bit of paper with thread wrapped around it, stored safely inside a plastic tube.
The next ones take the cake! Yes, that is a broken toothpick saving a bit of thread. Along with it is a tiny rolled scrap of fabric with thread wound around it. Some might find this disturbing but I find it very sweet! Ah, thrift!
