About a week ago, I came across this string bin. Ugh. I nearly emptied the whole thing in the trash.

Then I decided to piece some together. I have no real plan here.

Finding strips of similar size was frustrating. So I started pressing and sorting.

This took forever!

But it was helpful. I started sewing similar size strips together.

I still have many strips left to sew and no idea what I’ll do with these panels.

Have a great day!

    Pressing and sorting those strings takes a while, which is why I did mine while I was watching Hallmark movies! It’s worth it though for some great finishes. It’ll be fun to see where you go with this.

    I have bins just like that! Good idea on sorting by length and good for you just getting on with sewing them together. I am inspired to do the same thing as I can’t bear to just throw out fabric of any size.
