It’s no secret I love to sew with my scraps. I keep my scraps sorted by size and color. This enables me to find what I’m looking for. It also keeps things from getting overwhelming. If you would like help taking the overwhelm out of your scraps bins. You’re welcome to see if my method might work you. Today I’d like to share a few projects to bust your scraps from what I call the chunks bins.

Chunks are scraps of fabric that are bigger than a charm square. But smaller than a fat quarter. Today I’d like to share a few projects to help use up the chunks in your scrap bins.
