Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Scraps of scraps! l save mine up until the bag is full. Then l turn a pillowcase inside out ( old/ugly/orphaned) & pencil mark the 1/2 way.I fill bottom half of case. stitch along the pencilled line, fold the rest of the case ( thus covering the stuffed area again) and shove stuffed area back out of way while stitching the "cuffed" edge of pillowcase shut.The outer layer shows the right side of case ( not that it matters). Our quilting group gets donations of pillowcases for this, and we all save our bits.The local shelter has asked that we do not include bits of batting, yarn , thin stringy pieces, as distressed animals will tear appart /chew and so could choke. When we have a cupboard full, they are brought to the shelter at Lady Lake where they are gratefully received.
