The Zen of Cutting Up Scraps

I enjoy putting together my scrap samplers because there's something relaxing about taking weirdly shaped pieces of fabric and cutting them into relatively-normally-shaped, small pieces for someone else to use. My mind is free to go wander as I cut and select 35-40 pieces for a bag. I think about the design of the huipiles or cortes from which each piece came, and where the fabric was made.

Yesterday I put together several scrap samplers; below is a photo of one of them. Again, for any of you who have purchased these in the past, I'd love to see the craft projects you've used them in!
