Scraps

It's no surprise that I have a fascination with little pieces and the collection of them. Even when I came across this fallen rock on a recent hike I had to resist the impulse to collect its shattered little pieces, which brought to mind the fine choppings of a cabbage.


With all the wool felt items that I make, I create — try as I may — far too many scraps for me to use myself. And so I collect all the scraps and sort them into two categories for reuse. (All this sorting makes for a perfect excuse to sit outside in the sun — a task my mom happily jumped on during her recent visit.)

The very small pieces are used as packing material when I ship boxes — but the larger pieces still have plenty of life in them, making them great for crafting projects. I often donate them to local schools for children's art projects, or use them in my felt crafting workshops — but last fall I started to make them available to customers.

This reusable, machine-stitched muslin bag is 10½ x 11½" closes with a drawstring and is full of colorful hand-dyed wool felt scraps, perfect for adding personal touches to your DIY felt project. The colors are the same ones I use in my collection, and each bag is a unique assortment. Order a Felt Scrap Bag [$22.00]

If you've ordered a felt scrap bag from me, I'd love to see what you made with the scraps. Post your photos on the Kata Golda Facebook page.
