using up scraps

I really have a hard time throwing away any scrap of fabric no matter how small it is.  (And you can tell by looking at my craft room.)  I even save those long leftover strips of fabric that most people probably throw away.  Now what could one possibly do with these???

Why, sew them to a bag of course.

I made a morsbag out of my "chatham tan" shower curtain.  It was looking a little plain, so I jazzed it up with some strips of fabric.  I left the edges raw then rewashed the bag so it would fray a little. 

When I showed my husband, his response was something like "Why didn't you do that to the back?  Now you have to make sure the decorated side of the back is always facing out."  Typical husband response.
