It does not matter if you stitch big items like bags or small things like pouches, if you sew a lot, you end up with a lot of interfacing scraps that are too small to be useful and too big to throw them to the trash.
For these bags made with my latest patterns I used Decovil light interfacing and my pile of scraps is growing by the day.
What to do with them?

Batting, interfacing and foam scraps – what to do with them?
Here is an idea.
Choose scraps with similar lengths. Straighten the long edges of the pieces.
Press the pieces on the back of the fabric, one by one. Pay attention to place the pieces right next to each other, not overlapped and without space between them.
Press on the right side of fabric.
Straighten the piece.
Press on top of the interfacing scraps a layer of lightweight interfacing.
Here is my piece; it looks perfect but I think some stitching done through all the layer (a grid) will strengthen the piece.
I think this piece can be successful used for a pouch!
Do you have other ideas about how could we use these scraps? My latest Decovil order arrived in 3 weeks, so yes, I don’t have the heart to throw the big scraps!
