|itty bitty scraps in a bag|
I have 2 systems for the most part. I take the little itty bitty pieces and throw them into a bag. I use a really classy paper shopping bag from Britex in San Francisco. Only the best for those little itty bitties. These are the pieces that are really too small but I figure they must be good for something like the last piece for a string block where you just need a tiny little scrap.

My second system is at the completion of a quilt, I take the leftovers that are not folding yardage and I stick the works into ziploc bags. The bags then go on the shelf in an overflowing basket. What I have then are colour coordinated scraps in a bag. This works fairly well so far but I need a different storage system for all the bags.
What about you? How do you manage your scraps? Rachel has invited bloggers to show her how you manage the scrap mess. I am going to send her an email with a link to this post so I can share my scrap mess.
