It’s amazing what you can do with leftovers.
Last September I finished this YYMN custom. I had a tad of leftovers, about 1.5 oz. I always feel a bit uncomfortable when there is excess like this, I never know what to do with it & feel a bit guilty even when the customer says to keep it. When the Mama asked me to make a spring shrug…well, I found a use for those scraps.
A sweet and simple summer shrug, embellished with the scraps of “Fresh” a wonderful colorway from “Green Strings”
Ribbing on the sleeves, hem & neckline trimmed with “Fresh”
I’d saved all those little scraps and embellished a simple button flower
And, with the bits remaining added to the back
Making sure the design is flat enough it will not be uncomfortable for her little one
I’ve found I love playing with leftovers!
