Instant Productivity for a Period of Sewing Disappointments

I'm freeing some space in my fabric scrap storage today by cutting out a tried and true underwear pattern in cotton tee shirt jersey. I won't sew them right away, but at some future moment when I've been mending, or sewing unsuccessful muslins, or feeling unproductive, I'll sew up a few pair of underbritches, embellish them with lace remnants, and restock my lingerie drawer.

I cut these out last winter at the same time I sewed this clothesline-full, and I decorated them with left-over stretch lace from other projects and completed them during a recent period of sewing disappointing muslins for new patterns. Instant productivity.
