Recycling Serger Scraps

I am serging away beautiful vintage kimono panels, and the little strips are lovely...what to do with them?
For bead makers, how about using them to wrap around those straws?  The silks are so lovely.
Spinners.. tie them together, then use for plying with your handspun for extreme crazy yarn.

By the way, an excellent source for vintage kimono panels is Juliet B's shop on Etsy.
Her quality and service are excellent.  I have been working with her for the last few months for my vintage kimono scarf line that I sell at One of a Kind Show in Chicago and in our gallery, Porter Studios and Fine Arts Gallery.  She is willing to go out of her way to help you.  By the way, she just emailed a photo of what she does with her kimono scraps!
