Michele blogs at The Scrap Shoppe, and she has a great no-sew way to use up some of the fabric scraps in your stash! Michele loves summer decorating, and keeps her stuff up “from Memorial Day to Labor Day.” Her red white & blue rag ribbon garland definitely has me feeling patriotic, but I’m also thinking about other color combinations that would look great throughout the year!
Oh say can you sew! Amanda at Mommy is Coocoo had a huge bag of fabric remnants and hit on a fabulously patriotic way to display them–she made a map of the USA!
“I like to use up every bit of “otherwise-trash” that I possibly can,” confesses Gwen on her blog, You Can Call Me Gwen. She goes on to explain, “This project uses plastic water bottle caps, small pieces of fabric, and leftover bits of embroidery thread and ribbon which may otherwise have been part of a landfill.”
Melanie from Find It Make It Love It shared this cute rag wreath for Fall at The Ribbon Retreat. You can make one like it with fabric scraps from your stash.
Need a fun craft to keep the kids busy this week and help them get ready for Father’s Day? Pauline used a former soup can as the base for this fun idea that she shared at Club Chica Circle.
Amanda from Bullfrogs and Bulldogs shared a great way to turn crafting scraps into pretty Christmas ornaments. It’s the perfect way to use pretty leftovers from sewing, papercrafting, and other projects.
