What to do With Those Fabric Scraps!

We all know what a hassle it is to try and find a place for all that fabric we’ve already used, but can’t bear to throw out.  I have boxes filled to the brim with scrap fabric that I have no idea what to do with.  Today, I have found 3 different ways to put those scraps to good use.  Let’s get started!

A lot of you guys may know that I am a total bookworm.  My first blog post had another cute idea for a bookmark and I don’t plan on giving it up anytime soon.  This is perfect for those scraps that are just too cute to do away with.  Just think about it, you’ll get your tip-top education while cleaning out that scrap box.

The original bookmark was a bit too fat for me, so instead of cutting out two strips of fabric, I cut one strip and folded it in half.  Then, sewed down the side with an open end only.

Coasters are probably one of the most easiest projects to make.  And they’re useful, too!  You can customize this to make it into any shape and size to fit your needs.  The extra stitching on the right side of the fabric is what makes this one of my favorites.  Love it!

Make sure to check out the tutorial!

This is such an easy way to brighten up a room without using too much space.  Most of what you need is already on your wall and everything else is just too easy to get.  This looks so cute and I will always remember to do this every time I move.
