    Default What do you do with your fabric scraps?

    I've just been cutting out some material for a set of placemats I'm going to make. I've got all these little scraps of fabric, not big enough to do anything with, but I can't bear to throw them out because I like the fabric so much



    I have other little scrappy pieces in my fabric box too, again not big enough to anything with but I still can't make myself put them in the bin! They'll probably still be in the bottom of the box when I die

    I stuff them into things, like stuffed toys, or to pad out something.

    If you really love the fabric, could you edge it and layer it with something else to make matching coasters? Or use several pieces as applique on a table runner?

    Save them to make barbie clothing with. Use them to make self-cover buttons. If they are long pieces you can braid/plait them together & make headband, bracelet, belts etc Sew together to make one big piece & make a patchwork toy out of it
