I saw a technique for crazy patchwork, and it set my mind buzzing as a use for all the oddments of fabric I have left over from dress-making. I've got lots of oddly shaped bits and pieces stashed away - leftovers from cutting out garments. They are too big to throw away, but not big enough to be of much use (rag-rugs excepted!) Then I saw this technique of "stitch and flip" which would successfully find a use for them.
There are waste pieces from blouses, trousers, skirts and shirts, as well as a few bits I've held on to just because I thought they were too good to throw out. I cheated a bit by stitching them onto a backing fabric (in this case, an old t-shirt I was going to throw out), and then backed the whole thing to make this envelope cushion cover.
Hurrah for never throwing anything away!
