NSM: Die-cut scraps with Lynn at The Little Red Hen

All posts may contain affiliate links.

When it comes to scrap fabrics, Lynn from The Little Red Hen definitely follows the “waste not, want not” philosophy! She explains, “I like to use even the tiniest of fabric pieces. I string piece them into larger shapes or cut them in to tiny squares and sew them into larger blocks that can be incorporated into later projects.”

Lynn has a great post on her blog about how she uses tiny scrap squares to make four-patch quilt blocks. Just look at this adorable box full of tiny squares and triangles:

National Sewing Month 2015 is all about fabric scraps and I'm celebrating with The Sewing Loft. Today, Lynn from The Little Red Hen is sharing a fantastic tip on how to die cut scraps and savor every last inch!



In the post you can also read all about how Lynn uses her Sizzix machine to cut tiny squares out of her scraps. What an efficient way to make use of leftover fabrics!

It should come as no surprise, though, since Lynn is a real pro when it comes to using scraps. She even wrote a book on it, which you can find here in her Etsy shop. And as she says, “My sewing super power is the ability to use even the tiniest of fabric scraps in my quilt. I really do try to use Every Last Piece!”
