More Scraps Too Small to Save

I'm always on the lookout for odd stitched items in antique shops.

Imagine my delight when I found this a few years ago in Scranton, Kansas.

Some thrifty soul stitched scraps together and made this little potholder. The back is feedsack fabric.
It measures ~5" x 7".

One Christmas I made these for gifts.
It's another excuse to save scraps others say are too small to save......


  1. I love these! The rectangular shape makes them even more unique!

  2. I think I will make one for my blog freind Micki, she collects pot holders and I have plenty of scraps! best wishes from grey, damp England

  3. These are great - I have a hard time throwing out scraps - there is always so much you can do with them.
