Another Use

So, I went into work on Saturday, and Karrie was cutting. What was she cutting? Well....let's see.....

It seems that she is indeed cutting....some shapes out of the discarded fabric swatches that we have in the back {of course we are good girls, and keep them....just in case we'd need them for anything!}

Well, since we are getting the store ready for our Spring Open House next weekend, we needed some new decorations for under our glass where we ring our delightful customers up!

Well...it's pretty cute!
When you are in furniture stores, or drapery stores, ask if you can have their discontinued fabric samples. You can cut out your own designs and use them under glass, like we did here, or you can put them in frames - either as the background for another pretty object, or as the design itself! How about putting those shapes onto pillows...or even use them as patches on your kid's clothing!
See what we did here a couple months ago for a "miss manners" tea party with our discontinued fabric samples!

Think creative - you'll get some GREAT {original} ideas!
