Retalhos :: Scraps

Setembro é o mês de pôr a casa em ordem para depois (re)começar a trabalhar (já estou a pensar no Natal!). Os retalhos que tenho vindo a acumular pedem uma arrumação sistemática; caso contrário, torna-se quase impossível utilizá-los. Vou arrumá-los por cores, em baldes de tecido feitos dos próprios retalhos. O molde dos baldes é da Maya e pode comprar-se aqui. Provavelmente teria conseguido criar um molde meu, mas gosto da ideia de apoiar os meus fellow crafters, tal como gosto que, comprando as coisas que faço, apoiem o meu trabalho. A propósito, há uns dias li este excelente texto sobre o assunto.
September is the ideal month for tidying up the flat so I can go back to work (I’m already thinking about Christmas!). I’ve been accumulating scraps and they’re screaming for some kind of systematic organisation; otherwise, they are impossible to use. I’m going to sort and store them by colours in fabric buckets made out of scraps. This bucket pattern is by Maya and you can buy it here. I could probably have made my own pattern for it but I like the idea of supporting my fellow crafters, just the way I like it when people buy my things and support my work. By the way, some days ago I read this excellent post on the subject.

    Cute basket!! Very good idea. I just decided to pour all my scraps into a huge paper gift bag I had lying around. Don't know what else to do with them!

    Also, thanks for the link to that wonderful post about supporting handmade.

    Eh verdade como gostava de os apoiar mais, mas infelizmente não me tem sido possivel.

    O bale é uma maravilha e realmente esses retalhos precisam de organização, eu tenho os meus ao molho… dentor de uma caixa rs

    O vestido ficou um mimo,

    just bought this pattern – after seeing how cute yours turned out and reading your link that you gave about supporting other crafters
    i too could have easily designed the bag myself, having been a seamstress since i was 12, but i wanted to have her pattern and spread the love around
