pretty amazing yes?
I'm a stay-at-home Mom of a busy little bunch and love to sew and quilt!
One of my favorite ways to use up leftover fabrics from projects is with all the free online tutorials available. I have made use of a bunch of them over the years ~ fabric baskets, purses, crayon rolls, aprons, headbands, bibs, baby shoes, checkbook covers, diaper pouches, notebook covers, taggie blankets, skirts, keyfobs, tissue pouches ~ to name a few. These quick little projects have given me big satisfaction. Often they were also gifts for others which is another kind of satisfaction in itself, and helps with the budget!
One of my current obsessions is doll quilts! Perfect for keeping all my little girls' dolls warm this Winter :)With my smaller scraps, I try to cut them up into stacks of different sized squares ~ some of them get used in doll quilts, and some of them are being saved up for some scrappy quilts down the road.
A bunch of them were used up in this matching set of curtains and rug for my daughters' room ~ using simple stacked coins patterns.
THANK-YOU Madame Samm for the guest blogger opportunity today! And if anyone would like to check out my blog or shop ~ well now you know where to find me :) And if you have a link or little project that you love to make with your scraps, please share it in the comments ~ I'd love to find some more ideas too!
