Using up my scrap fabrics for a pillow
I sew a lot, as you can perhaps imagine, and no matter how careful I am to try and use as much of the fabric as possible, I also end up with a lot of scraps. You can use scraps for many different projects, I especially love pompoms and little purses, but sometimes you end of with super small scraps that will not fit any of those projects. I put mine in a box, or actually two boxes, one with stretchy scraps and one with woven scraps.
This time if wanted to do a scrap patchwork project with the woven scraps because I have so many little pieces with such beautiful patterns and prints on them.
What to do to make the Scrap patchwork project pillow
The answer is simple- you just start sewing without thinking too much about it. Put the pieces together and what will start out as a small patch of uneven pieces will soon grow to a large piece of uneven pieces.
I made two squares as and turned them into a pillowcase with a zipper. You can see the video of it on YouTube here.
I think it got a bit impatient because the camera was rolling, because I chose some of the larger pieces, but I still think it ended up looking so cute.
And an amazingly easy and quick thing to make, that also used some of the fabric scraps I just had lying around in my big box.
I made two squares that I could sew into a pillowcase, but I would love to try t make a bigger piece of them. To simply keep going as long as I have scraps to do it with.
I have also seen some examples of the method used for super tiny pieces of left over fabric and it is so awesome. Look really good as miniatures as well.
I have earlier made lots of things with left over bits of fabric. Most recently this gift bag tutorial.
I hope you like it, and that it can inspire you to use those scraps of fabric.
