Every time I create a new piece of art work I end up having many scraps of different sizes left over. It took me a while to realise that I could use them creatively instead of just for stuffing dolls and pillows.
I sort my scraps according to sizes and have created tutorials for a number of different size scraps.
My Mosaic technique for larger pieces which can be found here
I use the technique to embellish clothing
And to make "new" fabric from which I create purses, bags and fabric jewelry.
A small eyeglasses case.
It can also be used to create modern art pieces, large or small.
One Inch Magic Fabric for smaller pieces which can be found here
Literally using more or less one inch sized pieces, which I sorted this time into seasonal colors, these are the summer colors
Using coordinating threads from my stash
"New" fabric to be used to create another product or as a modern art piece.
anything goes, purples, reds, a selection of tie dyed pink scraps over here
I managed to create one piece with the scraps I had.
and then there is the ScrapFabric technnique for the tiniest of pieces here
The pieces are really small but the colors are too beautiful to just use as stuffing. They also serve as decorations on the shelf in my studio. My fabric "spices" to color my life.
I created 2 pieces of ScrapFabric from autumn colors, one for an art piece
and I used the other to create a pocket amulet here
I use the pockets to store herbal tea mixes which I carry with me.
and they can double as coasters for my drink
Ideas are endless. Don't throw your scraps away, follow and come and create with us using our tutorials
