Sewing with scraps is like a way to connect with our sewing ancestors, who would reuse old garments to turn them into new things in an effort to waste not, want not. These days, it’s rarely less expensive to sew something yourself than it is to buy it in a store, but there are ways to economize your sewing – and saving your scraps to use in future projects is at the top of that list. There is such a thing as a piece of fabric that’s too small to be scrap-worthy, too. So ask yourself this: Can I physically sew this piece of fabric to another one? Is it large enough for me to maneuver it in my sewing machine without sewing through my own fingers? If the answer is that the fabric is too small for you to sew, then it’s probably time to retire that one to the trash. But if it’s big enough to sew to something else, keep it! It’s a scrap! Now that you’ve got a good idea of what makes a fabric scrap, what exactly are you supposed to DO with them all? We’ll be covering that all month-long, but here are some great ideas to get you feeling inspired: - fussy cuts – cutting a small section out of a piece of fabric to be a visual focal point in a piece - burst of color – use small pieces of scrap fabrics to accentuate your projects - new fabric – sew several scraps together to make a larger piece of fabric for a bigger project VIDEO LINK: https://youtu.be/bV-kLn0F8rw ____ Craft Fabric Bundle: https://amzn.to/2TJgeR9 Quilting Fabric Strips: https://amzn.to/3aQ1hme Shop on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/shop/diystitching ___ Track Info: Track:1 One Fine Day by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/ Track:2 12 Mornings by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/ Track:3 Green Leaves by Audionautix is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artist: http://audionautix.com/
