Not using it is worse than buying it carelessly in the first place, IMHO. Those who know me well know what I did...I sewed it up as much as possible. I joined the team on PatternReview and planned my attack. So far I have sewn 17 yards of old, unused, questionable fabric. Hurray!

Now, THIS tee is the best use of scraps. I have a pile of knit scraps which I try to remember to use. I made this using V9055 and had barely enough to finish it.

The camel is from some pjs I made for my husband and we both think it is a blah color.
