You learn something new every day, and today I learned that hip clothing retailer American Apparel is selling cloth scraps for $8 per bag--weird!

The order form for the American Apparel scrap bags, titled Bag-O-Scraps handily suggests some uses for the fabric such as, “making jewelery or accessories or a card for your grandma.”

Each Bag-O-Scraps comes with five fun and easy scrap projects for folks who like to DIY.

Nifty!

Products that allow customers to create their own designs are appealing to those who prefer to be more hands-on with their style. Companies could focus on this do-it-yourself element to appeal to a wider audience.
