Crumbs and Scraps

I recently started in on some crumb blocks. There is something soothing about taking the bits of leftover fabric and making something out of it. Order out of chaos.

Last week with the US elections, I think we all needed to find a safe calm mental space. For me, that was sitting there and sewing together crumb blocks.

Little pieces sewn together. Those pieces sewn together.

When one of the local G Street Fabric locations was closing down, I bought a lot of zippers. I have a lot of 7 inch zippers. So I started turning these crumb blocks into a basic zipper pouch. Even the lining is from fabric scraps, though I didn’t piece that. After a while, the seams become bulky.

It’s been a fun little project!
