Have you every played that game with King and Queen fitted sheets, Which Way is the Top?
Cut light colored strip into 5 inch pieces.
Fold in half, right sides together and sew side seams.
Turn right side out, press, then use a permanent laundry marker to write TOP or other notation.
Sew or safety pin to the top seam of fitted sheets or any item you want to easily identify the top edge.
Some scraps are too big to toss in a scrap bag, and they are too small to fit in with folded yardage without getting lost.
Folding the fabric to fit into a tissue box was more successful. Here is how we did it.
You will need a large tissue box, some wide packing tape and a 4″ wide gridded ruler. Cut the top of the box from the opening to the corners, fold the flaps down and tape inside the box.
Now you can easily stack on a shelf or store in a drawer, yet easily move the pieces to your work station.
