WITH SCRAPS: Vintage Sheet File Folders

I first came across this great idea on Design Sponge who in turn soaked up this great idea from Katherine Jalaty of Making Chicken Salad. I love the idea of using vintage fabric (my local thrift store sells fabric by the bag), but any fabric scraps would work (well, as long as they are big enough, but then again you could do a little patchwork). For Katherine's full tutorial click here.

  1. I couldn't figure out the email address you had listed, but I wanted to share.

    I made this little house using scraps (http://thelifeofmegananne.blogspot.com/2009/09/little-brown-house.html) and following See Katie Sew's pattern (http://seekatiesew.blogspot.com/2009/09/want-to-make-your-own-house.html)

  2. What a great idea!
