I think I have more scraps than whole fabric...
Hi! After a particularly busy year I finally have time to get into crafting again. I went through my fabric for inspirations, and I realized I'm way overflowed with scraps. I really want to use them up before I do any other projects, but I can't think of anything to make out of them. Some of them are barely an inch, while others are a good 10"...
Something large and patch-work-y would be nice, but I can't make a blanket as it's mostly felt, and felt isn't as soft as I'd like a blanket to be. I honestly don't have any ideas other than a blanket, so I was wondering if anyone else did. I'll probably shred the little ones and use them for stuffing, but as for the bigger pieces, I don't have any projects in mind that need them and I really need to cut back on my scraps, the bin is overflowing!
So... how does everyone else usually get rid of their scraps, and does anyone have anything in mind for to get rid of mine?
Felt gets saved and reused until its teenie tiny, then it's stuffing. Other fabric scraps get sewn together to make larger patchwork pieces. But usually I just save the small bits of fabric becuase I can use them to make embellishments for jewler, accessories, cards, collages or to small things like dotee dolls. Honestly dont get rid of them! You can always use them, for something, eventually, lol! I just fold the bits up nicely and store them in boxes, all lined up, so when I open the box and am looking for a certian color/style of fabric for a project I can see all of them right away. Organizing them will help you know what you have/need
