And, then he makes the next one, off the same roll, maybe...... Anyway, Mountainfitter is in business, so it is reasonable of him to turn waste into $, as every tailor would like to do.
Believe me, I'm sympathetic. I asked for scraps when I last scored a DIY TQ here. KLHinNC was so generous (and I hope not tired of DIY) I felt guilty to get a swath, not scraps.
I farkled the red outer layer of a WM Summerlite sleeping bag, and would have loved to buy some patches to make the most unobtrusive repair. (Shout - out to WV for sending me some Pertex = that helped with me another screw-up on an interior.)
