memory blanket x

For a while now I've been thinking about the waste produced when making memory keepsakes. I wanted to make use of the fabric somehow. Someone suggested I use the fabrics to make things to sell but it's just not ethical all around to make items for sale from someone's loved ones items of clothing. Quite often there's just one little emblem to cut out of a whole garment so the clothing isn't suitable to pass on to charity either. 

Recently I made a beautiful memory quilt for a lovely lady who also didn't want to see the rest of the clothing I'd used on it go to waste, she requested that I somehow used up some of the fabrics and made some little items she could give to people. She suggested scrunchies which will make brilliant little keepsake gifts for friends and hanging hearts. I had a look at what I had left and saved the bigger panels and sleeves. 

In the end I made layered hearts and keyrings as well, but in future I'm thinking of adding little coin purses and bookmarks as an option. These add-ons make ideal, low priced, token keepsakes to give out to extended family and friends as a gift. Is there anything else you'd like to see as an add-on?
