As you can imagine I generate quite a bit of scrappy bits of fabric. Here are 5 great ideas for your scrap fabric:
I love these fabric scrap thumbtacks, they really would use up all those tiny bits of fabric. Thanks Jessica for the tutorial.
Handmade notelets, simply cut out little triangular shapes, glue stick them down and sew a line across the top! This week, as part of my zero waste week efforts I have made a few, ready to include in any christmas sales parcels:)
Brighten up your home this fall with a fabric scrap wreath – would use up loads of scraps!!
How about some fabric tape to brighten up any parcel? or to make cards with?
But I have to admit I think I have saved the best to last! My favorite idea is this gorgeous fabric twine – I had a go at making my own. It does take time, and slightly longer pieces of scrap than the others but I think this would add a unique touch to wrapping parcels, or if you are good at crochet perhaps you could crochet with it?
If all else fails use your fabric scraps as stuffing for pincushions, or save it and take it to your local charity shop or recycling centre for rag collection.
I would love to know what you do with your fabric scraps, I have started a pinterest board to collect ideas:)
As usual I am hopping by Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else’s week has been like,
