|If Quilting is not a sport you practise;
If you are a disciplined sewer fond of perfect fitting, then you probably make muslins before cutting the real fabric;
If you sew over 5-10 garments per year...
Then you must end-up with a great deal of unused waste and muslin you do not know what to do with.
I recently got in touch with a children's hospital who is always in search of do-it-yourself (is it the right English word for bricolage ??) material or sources of creation or inspiration if you prefer. They have art classes where kids use all sort of material (paper, fabric, felt, etc). They make gorgeous collage, puppets, or little stuffed animal.
I also bring them the muslins I make with special crayons that write on fabric. I do not forget to add funny coloured zippers or buttons to have functional closers. Zip - here is costume for a kid who did not ask to be sick. They love to draw on those white muslin.
I can tell you that beside being green, this tip makes kids happy.
If you do not have a children's hospital near by, well a local public school in an economically challenged area will also be happy to have those "left overs".
No waste ! ;-)
