That way when I get the time to make them I pull a few out at a time and work on them from start to finish and all my pieces are precut including the thread to sew them and I just need to assemble them.
I do the same thing - cute the pieces, match them all up, except I put them in little baggies, and I reuse them over, and over, and over - the bags are looking pretty rough at this point! It's easier to have everything ready and then just assemble.
