I understand what you're saying about the patchwork stuff, SB. It's very time consuming to make. We're lucky that our council will collect the scraps with the other recycling. When it's a dry recycling day & I've got a (plastic, sorry
but it should be kept dry) bagful and I remember.. I put it out for collection. Even the small bits can be shredded and turned into shoddy - and some of the morsbag T shirts are made of that. The fabric is really good - much better than you'd expect with a name like that!
