Starting weight - 23.7 oz
Weight of scraps after making messenger bag and cutting strap and sides from wristlet - 8.3 oz
Weight of other leather scraps pulled in from stash (applique on messenger) - 3.5 oz
Net contribution to leather stash (honey colored leather) - 4.8 oz
Total waste was .1 oz.
So out of the whole 23.7 ounces, 4 oz is now in my stash, and .1 oz ended up in the trash - .004%. There will be some waste when I use up the rest of the scraps, which will bring the total amount of waste to about 1%.
If you have any ideas for what to do with the teensy scraps, please let me know!
