Recycle: Holland & Sherry Fabric Samples To Scarf

I asked a tailor I know what they do with the fabric sample books in their shop when they are out of date or no longer available.  He said, "We throw them in the dumpster."  I was shocked.  Some of the fabrics sell for hundreds of dollars a yard.  I thought: "Recycle".

I took a book, cut out the samples and sewed them together.

I backed the whole thing with navy corduroy and top stitched it down.  I like the way it turned out, and the fact that I recycled this fabric.  I'll do it again!
