plural noun: scraps
1. a small piece or amount of something, especially one that is left over after the greater part has been used
As I have mentioned before, my little sewing business generates a lot of scrap fabric. I am always trying to come up with ways to use up those scraps. One thing I came up with to use up the scraps from the apron fabric is to make doll aprons. You can get the tutorial to make one yourself here.
