This week I raided my scrap fabric basket and, I am sharing easy sew scrap fabric projects. I am a hoarder of fabric and, I can’t throw away the scraps. I am going to give you some ideas on how to use your scrap fabric. These projects are perfect for a rainy afternoon. Pop the kettle and check out the video below.
How To Sew A Scrunchie
The scrunchies are making a comeback! If you are a child of the ’90s, then you will love this scrunchie DIY. They are so easy to make.
Here are the measurements for the scrunchies and click on the video below for the detailed instructions.
Cut a piece of fabric:
- 22 inches in length.
- 3.5 inches in width.
- 6 inch elastic.
Sew the right sides of the fabric together. Use a safety pin to turn the fabric the right way out. Add in the elastic and tie it tightly. Turn in the raw edges and sew the opening closed.
How To Sew Reusable Make-up Pads
I the above video I also share how to make reusable make-up pads. I have been trying to cut down on using the single-use make-up remover pads. So, I decided to make my own by recycling an old towel and my scrap fabric.
Cut out a circle of fabric and a circle of the towel in the size you want. Then sew the right sides together and leave an opening to turn it the right way out. Clip the curves and turn the fabric the right way out. Sew a top stitch around the pad, as this will close the opening in the fabric.
How To Make A Dish Cloth
DIY dishcloths are a perfect way to use up old scrap fabric and recycle the plastic nets that come with your fruit. These are so easy to make.
Follow the same instructions as above, only this time add in a layer of plastic netting. You can see from the video how I sandwiched the layers together to create the dishcloth.
