well, I wasn’t going to save my scraps because I had some diagonal cuts and it seemed like there was not much that I’d be able to do with what I had left.  Well, I had such a crush on it, I just couldn’t part with the scraps…
…and it’s a good thing I didn’t.  I all of a sudden thought that I just might have enough for a little dress for Ives
 I cut the width to be about 1 1/2 her width.   I shirred the top, which is so fun to do and then added a little extra ruffle at the bottom to give it a little extra zip (I hardly had enough to make much of a ruffle, but i love that it gives it a little extra something.)
and, unfortunately, I threw the rest of the scraps away…I used that cut to the fullest!
