8/7/08: What do you do to your thread clippings? Do you just scrap them or do you use them in something else? (submitted by Outi)

Well at the beginning of the year Jennifer had a post where she talked about her massive ort jar and ideas on what could be done with the clippings. Sounded like a good idea so I started one of my own using a clean jam jar (sans lid). Up until that point I had been tossing them in the recycle bag or garbage.

Still not sure what I will do at the end of the year, place them in a clear ornament so I can see all the fibers I worked with during the year, I also toss in a few threads from the fabrics as they fray off, or add them to a pillow orni with the year on it.

  1. I posted the same picture again for my SBQ answer. I'm glad I inspired you to make your own ort jar!
