How small

is too small?

Making a"Trip Around the World" involves a lot of cutting up strips,
sewing them together,
cutting them up a bit more,


a bit of unpicking,
then lots more sewing up.
At the  end of the strips are all these little bits too precious to discard.

So I do a bit more unpicking and trimming....

But these little bit of selvedge....
less than 1/4" ?

  1. Too small is when you can either/or can't hang onto a piece to sew it with something else... or it's too small to actually see! Otherwise.... go for it!
    "Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do with out!" An adage that was used a lot during WWII from what I understand! Nothing like using it all up.
    When we lived in Japan, I wish I had thought to purchase old kimono's!
