I notice several here are cleaning out their sewing rooms and fabric stashes, and wonder what
you do with small scraps of batiste? Do you toss them?

I'm currently making hankies out of voile and batiste, and would like to do some madeira applique
shapes by hand (leaves, flowers, etc....tiny things) in colors. But I don't want to have to purchase
yardage for fine batiste or voile in colors, just to have enough to make a few teeny-tiny leaves or flowers.

If anyone is interested, I'd be happy (thrilled!) to purchase the scraps you're throwing out.
Thanks in advance for anyone interested : ).

Linda, send me your address through PM and I will put some pieces in the mail for you. Do you want all plain or can it have little flowers?

Thank you girls! I'd love your little scraps, but please don't send me anything big enough that
you might use it. I posted this thinking about ones I tossed in the past, because they were too
small to make anything with. Now I wish I hadn't.

I had plain colors in mind, but come to think of it a dainty print would be very pretty too. I'll
send a PM. And thanks again!

I have strips of Imperial Batiste left from making a couple of VFT's Mae Pettiskirts. It's yours. (Your message received.)
