Sliver Trimming Leftovers

The deep cutting into the Cotton+Steel stash has produced a trashcan full of fabric slivers.

It’s even fuller now since I took this picture.

Somewhere I read recently that if one puts fabric slivers like these outside that the birds will use them for making their nests.

I’m thinking about putting out the slivers in a box to see what happens.

  1. Please, please don’t put fabric pieces or yarn out for the birds! It is not a good idea and is harmful for the birds. And I know you love the birds! BTW, I would be there in a hot minute to sift through those pieces to see if there were any scraps big enough for me to sew together!!!!! 😬🤪🤓

    • Thanks so much. This was exactly the information I wanted to know. Trust me, there are no pieces in that trash basket that are big enough to sew. I cut as small as 1 1/2 inch squares—and save anything strippy I can use in tiny log cabin strips that I can foundation piece. Thanks for reading my blog.
