I collected and collected and collected.   The salvages looked pretty neat in my Mason jar upon the shelf until it was full and ready to be transformed into a bag.   I cut two fabric panels and ironed fusible interfacing to the back.  To the front, I started in one corner and sewed on one salvage at a time.  Overlapping the raw edge of the previous salvage and covering up the right side of the fabric, so use a fabric that you look at and wonder what you were thinking when you purchased it!

I added two pockets to the inside and a snap closure.  Where the bag is hanging in the photo is pretty much were it lives.  I like keeping my current project tucked in there.  I know, such a shame that such a bag does not leave the house very often!   It just draws to  much attention at the fabric stores and have to shoo people away.  (or maybe not) 

The desk -- was a makeover project.  One day I took a spray paint can to it, then some sandpaper and, well, there you have it.  I love it.  And it is so sturdy when sewing.   See the scrap quilt on the wall.  That is a work in progress.  Progress is slow -- about two years, maybe three.  I am okay with that for two reasons.  1.  I like looking at it hanging on my sewing room wall.  2.  It has scraps of so many projects I have made  -- and some from friends.
