It's exciting to see brands make an effort to use these pieces for scrunchies, belts, quilts + patch kits. It's also easy to understand that the demand for scrunchies cannot keep up with the supply of fabric...and that the amount of effort needed to patchwork a quilt or garment is significantly greater than cutting into fresh fabric.
As a sewist, I enjoy brands like this as much for inspiration as for shopping. There is so, so much opportunity + need for zero-waste creativity!
