Scrapbag Treasures

From castoffs to a primitive rug

Updated April 26, 2017
Scrapbag Treasures

Our mothers and the generations before us knew the value of having a household scrap bag. My grandmother, who was born in 1888, was an avid quilter and had a scrap bag of her own. I loved to sit by her while she quilted with leftovers and sewed doll clothes from her remnants. Fabric was never thrown away.

The term “scrap bag” is not in common use by younger generations, but it is familiar to rug hookers of all generations—we all have leftover strips of wool! A scrap bag is a valuable asset if you love the primitive look in rugs.
