10+ Sewing Projects using Fabric scraps

Welcome to my stop on the Sew Much Fun Blog Hop hosted by Faith & Fabric . This month’s theme is ‘Save Our Scraps’.


(For the full list of all the blogs participating in this hop read to the bottom of this post!)

I am decidedly a scrap fabric hoarder. I rarely throw them out.

Which is not always a good thing.

I have scraps everywhere!

The super tiny pieces I save in a ziplock and when I have enough I use them to stuff a pincushion. But my favourite thing to do with scraps is for the slightly larger pieces, the pieces that are anywhere between the size of a 1″ square and a fat quarter. I use them to make appliques! Specifically, free motion applique (or FMA).

My Butterfly FMA design…. Again haven’t written out the tutorial for it yet. Ooops!

So that’s what I make with the majority of the scraps.

And if you want to see other projects made with fabric scraps check out my Tutorials page for projects like the mini heart pins tutorial below:

Or make Christmas ornaments, appliqued coasters, or with the larger pieces make doll clothes!

Besides those projects, other things I like to do is to piece scraps together to make the fronts for coasters like the ones I have in my Etsy shop here:

Square coaster set

Triangle coaster set

Often the backs use fabric scraps as well; like the second set of coasters above using leftover pieces of denim.

For even more ideas, check out my Pinterest board dedicated to projects using fabric scraps.
