Fabric Scraps: To keep or not to keep? That is the question!

DSCN1685

We’ve all been there before. You finish a really great project. You notice a slight defect in the print. You have just enough to material with a little excess. You trim. You snip. You cut. At the end, you are left with a literal bundle of joy – a pile of fabric scraps, or remnants, if you prefer. (I like to think of them as leftovers, personally.) They’re large. They’re small. Some are square. Some are not so uniform. There are strips. They are pieces of all shapes and size. At this time you are left with the age-old question…What do I do with these?

As Hamlet infamously asked “To be, or not to be- that is the question…”, you yourself may be replacing “be” with “keep”. Leftover fabric is always useful in my opinion. There’s always something that can be done, so the pieces are not completely wasted. I have surfed the lovely web and came across several fun ideas for your little bundles of textile joy. Below is a list of my favorite ones. I have included all of my finds, so just click on the picture for the original tutorial link! Give them a try!

There are an infinite number of ways to put your fabric remnants to good use. These are just a few of my favorite projects, but the possibilities are endless. They can be used for crafting projects, home décor projects, no-sew projects, personalized gifts, and so much more. A little creativity can go a long way! Be sure to tell me about your favorite ways to use your fabric leftovers too!

Warm Regards,
