Rainbow Scrappy Saturday

This month over at SoScrappy, Angela has chosen pink for us play with.

Dig out our scraps and use up those oldies but goodies, just oldies.


 

Who remembers these? Definitely from the early 90s. They were all the same - "calicos" - little flowers. And although it's hard to tell in these pictures, these are all that ole favorite - dusty rose.

So, cut them really small and pair them with Kona Cotton White and they start to look better.


These will become a toiletry bag and a cosmetic bag. The small bag 2 pieces are set 6x9, and the larger bag 2 pieces are 8x12. A total of 300 pieces, 2 zippers and 2 linings.


I'll work on it some more this week, in between some other projects that are slowly getting done,  and I'll soon have a pink matching set for these:

I do remember the dusty rose calicoes. They look so much better mixed in and used up. Great work!

I think I have some of those calicos hiding in my stash. They add so much when paired up with the solids.

Great way to use up those oldies.

I've got a few of those in my pile of pinks this month too! Great idea to put them with solids. Your bags look great.

I love those bags. What a great idea for using scraps and for getting ready for gifting.

I've been cutting into my mauve and dusty pink calico and large florals. You're right. Kona white makes everything look better.
