My daughter hasn’t met a piece of fabric that she didn’t love. She is a very creative kid, always sewing and making, which is wonderful! It just leads to a lot of scraps and bits of fabric that get put in the craft room drawers. They looked like this when we started:
That closed drawer also was overflowing, but I had already taken that load upstairs when I remembered to take a photo. I took me a few hours, some cutting to get some usable pieces and a lot of being tough and saying “We are never going to use this.” But it got done, and now it looks like this:

I was able to donate a few of the items, but most of it was useless. I’ll be dropping that off to the St. Vincent DePaul Society drop off location. Did you know that they accept fabric scraps and worn/holey items for recycling? Here’s the bag they are getting from us (the smaller bag is donation items):
