I do most of my die cutting on the large Studio die cutter but when I go to a sew-in I take the little GO! baby cutter. I took the die for finished 1.5" x 3" rectangles and a pile of batiks scraps yesterday.
Here are the by-products: a pile of scraps for dog bed filling, a small pile of scraps large enough to cut 1.5" squares and a pile of narrow scraps for improv piecing. Nothing went into the trash bin.
