30+ Scrap Fabric Projects

By now I think it is pretty clear that I like to use all of my fabric and boy, oh boy do I mean all! I save every little bite of scrap fabric in a basket and when it fills up, I know it is time to get creative.

30+ Easy Scrap Fabric Projects | The Sewing Loft

I’ve turned small scraps into yardage, small fabric bits into birds, mailed fabric postcards and even created a gift card holder from scraps of ribbon. Clearly, I have declared scrap fabric a challenge and am enjoying every little bit of it!

So, I dare you to take the challenge with me and reclaim all your fabric scraps.  Here is a round up of my scrap fabric projects in one place.  Believe me, this is a post that you will want to pin, because I can assure you there will be more added!

So let’s just see how bad it is…my scrap fabric obsession, that is.

  1. Wow, these are all so creative! Love it!

  2. All of these are so useful – thank you!

  3. How fun! They’re so colorful!

  4. I have made fabric envelopes for storing cash in, picnic basket liners, couch pillows, napkins, curtain tie backs, revamped picture frames with fabric and a set of antique curved window frames that were turned into a room divider, lots of hot pads, toilet paper vases, festive hat tree knob covers.

  5. This is a great round-up. My readers at FaveQuilts are crazy about scraps. Pinning!

  6. I do a lot of applique projects with scrap pieces. I make small quilts of nursery rhymes and fairy tales, such as “Little Bo-Peep,” “Jack & Jill,” “Little Red Hen,” “Henny Penny,” “Little Boy Blue,”
    “Mistress Mary, Quite Contrary,” and lots of different Sunbonnet Sue quilts. I use up my Christmas fabric scraps by making 3″ tree ornaments. I find that using tiny pieces rewards me with lots of challenging activities. I guess I like to do small items better than large quilts that have bigger
    blocks and squares. You can view some of my items on my web site ( which by the way is ancient). Web page has not been updated for quite some time……

  7. What a great collection of projects. My sewing tends to be more clothes and either knits or solids so my scraps never look very inviting like these. But some of these projects look so fun it might just be worth going out to buy some fabric!

  8. Love this post. So many great ideas!

    I want to let you know I found this via Pinterest here http://pinterest.com/pin/285556432596007446/ but when I clicked on the image I got a Pinterest “Suspicious Link” warning. I don’t know what their problem is, since I was able to Google it and clearly there is nothing wrong with the link. Anyway, you may want to check it out and elbow Pinterest to let them know they’re wrong.

    And yes, I’m pinning this blog post directly from here because it’s wonderful. Thanks!

    • Thanks so much Pam. I have reached out to them before about it but heard nothing back. I would love to connect with them and get it fixed. Much love for the pin!

    I love to sew crazy quilt blocks…my Mother taught me not to waste small pieces of fabric.

  10. Tina Cartell says:

    I love your ideas! I make the rag balls and I also make the rag rugs , I agree with its a grate way to use up the old materials.

  11. my mum would make aprons, scrunchies, napkins, makeover/repair an old/torn piece of clothing, before she injured her hand she’d make dolls clothes, now she makes blankets for the NICU/children’s ward at a local hospital with her scraps.

  12. so inspiring,u can try bed cover also for scrap materials,i am concentrating on wall panels with embroidery.
