Today we are over at Flamingo Toes sharing a tutorial for a scrap busting project.
(And it’s a good one…a combination of a little Lionel Richie, a little chalk, and some stripes…so if you have a minute click on over THERE and check it out!)
Meanwhile…over here today I thought it would be fun to share a roundup of some of our favorite scrap busting projects from the past…10 of them to be exact.
So here there are in no particular order….10 projects that you can do with all of those scraps you’ve been
How to Make Binding from Fabric Scraps: This was one of my first ever tutorials and still one of my favorites. It shows how to make binding from your scraps and then a few ideas with what you can do with that scrappy binding one you’ve finished making it.
Fabric Bookmarks: These book marks are both fun to make and use. Especially if you have just that tiny bit of left over fabric from a favorite print.
Rug Market Bag: I was addicted to making these bags awhile back. I swear I made 100 of them. (And I’m not exaggerating….) They are made from Dollar Store Rugs and then embellished with scraps.
Fabric Scrap Ornaments: Elizabeth made these fun ornaments awhile back using Christmas colored fabric she found in her scrap pile!
The Love Bunny Skirt: I made this skirt for Grace from a package of precuts but it would be just as cute using scraps of brightly colored scraps from your scrap bin!
Quilt As You Go Baby Bibs: If I was addicted to making those rug bags then Elizabeth was addicted to making these bibs (and still might be). They turn out so darling and use up a lot of scraps!
Fabric Scrap Bracelets: This is a project that Elizabeth and her daughter worked on together using up scraps from her scrap bin.
Scrappy Heart Wall Art: This project was all Grace and requires no sewing. Just glue, scissors, and a blank canvas.
Peg Dolls: And finally one of my favorite projects. (I doubt I will ever get tired of making these little ladies.) Peg dolls! They are so much fun to dress up in your left over scraps. But I’m warning you…once you start making these you won’t want to stop!
So there you have it!
