Creating New Fabric from Scraps

I challenge myself to see what I can come up with from the scrap box. I pulled out a mix of pastel strips. The technique that I focus on here is actually a way to create new fabric “yardage” which can be used as is or can be used as fabric to create other products

and got to work. I purposely didn't look when I pulled them out of the pile, I was curious to see what a truly random piece would look like.


A very interesting result. A densely quilted piece of fabric.

A quilted piece of upcycled fabric which could be used to create a number of items. A zippered pouch, a tote bag or even a fabric bracelet. It could also be used for collars and cuffs of a shirt or a jacket.

It could also be matted and framed and used as an art piece.

Don't give up on creating when all you have is remnants, often they create the most interesting pieces.
