As a quality UK fabric supplier, Thread and Loop know the struggles of finding a place for all the fabric you own, as well as the dilemma that can be faced when it comes to scraps – they are simply too pretty to throw away, but they’re just sitting there taking up space… well, no more! We’ve already given you a few ideas on how to use up your scraps, but here are five more for those of you looking for another project (or two… or three… or ten!)
Bracelets and Bangles
There are hundreds of different ways to make bracelets using fabric scraps from your local fabric supplier, and every one of them is beautiful! A lot of these methods are kid-friendly if you want to keep your occupied, and a number of these how-tos will let you use up odd leftover buttons too!
Rag bags are fun, funky, and unique! They’re a great use for lower quality scrapped fabric that may have been ripped (or even stained) and are a perfect summertime project no matter your skill level.
Eye masks are perfect for flights, relaxing, or just napping if you hate trying to sleep when it’s light! Shop bought eye masks can be hit and miss, but using your fabric scraps from your local fabric supplier to create your own means it’ll be exactly the right size for you! You can go as simple or as complex as you want, too!
What better way to use up itty bitty fabric scraps than making things for itty bitty babies? You can use your offcuts to make things like bibs, small toys, and even little booties! Whether they’re for your own children, a relative, or a friend’s baby, that added personal touch will make any of these a treasured item.
It’s super easy to liven up an old towel, cushion, or dress with a scrap of patterned fabric and create a beautiful trimmed piece! Depending on what sort of fabric you use, you can create a lot of looks and give many items a unique twist; for example, if you’re feeling extra fancy then you can make ruffles instead! Why not try with jean cuffs too?
