In case you missed this post on She Wears Flowers a couple of weeks ago…
Liz and I have been going fabric scrap crazy for the last little while. Liz made this darling dress and this darling shirt out of scraps that were cut and made into binding.
The idea is not mine, I got it from this genius tutorial….which I saw a long time ago and loved. The neckace looks like Wilma Flinstone to me and I think it is darling. I totally want to make one for myself.
For these bracelets I wanted to do them as a summer project with my girlie, so I had to figure out a different way than using the wire to hold them together.
Here’s what I came up with……
You will need a long strip of fabric scraps. All of these were 2x 6 inch rectangles that were sewn together in one big long chain, but you could do the same technique out of all the same fabrics in long strips….or make your scrap fabric any size you want.
And here’s how you do it.
Trust me when I say my almost-six-year-old loved it! She helped roll the balls, I hot glued them and she has been wearing it ever since. A good kid-friendly project that has a gajillion possibilities. A 4th of July one, larger-sized balls in an apothecary jar, made into a garland (I am totally doing that next….stay-tuned). Ok, you get the idea. Now, go get your scrap bin…..and get rolling. It’s kind of addicting.
