How To Make A No Sew Fabric Bookmark

I love using up fabric scraps and can never have enough bookmarks, so this fast and easy craft shows you how to make a no sew fabric bookmark! It’s hard to find ideas to use up knit fabric scraps (I have a huge list of them in this post!) but this craft perfectly uses up those weird long strips you end up with after cutting out clothes. Most craft stick ideas are for kids, but I think these would be a perfect gift for an adult. They kept my place in the embroidery book I was looking at; I think I’ll make a few more and slide them into my purse for when I’m reading on the go.

Simple EPP Hexie Pincushion Tutorial

 

Interested in EPP (english paper piecing) but intimidated by making a whole quilt? With only 17 hexies, make a simple pincushion with this easy pincushion tutorial! This is a great first quilting project and scrap buster tutorial. The post was sponsored by Maker Mountain Fabrics, where you can find this adorable Cotton + Steel Kujira fabric!

If you’ve admired EPP (english paper piecing) projects from afar, I have a great beginner tutorial to make a simple pincushion! Maker Mountain Fabrics sponsored this post, which means she sent me the fabrics in addition to compensation for creating the tutorial. This pincushion only takes 17 hexies, and while I think calling it a one-night project might be a stretch, you can definitely do it in a weekend. EPP is done by hand, which makes it a great hobby for parents who are running after small children. Similar to embroidery, you can stop and start a million times without messing anything up or losing your place, which I love! All of these hexies were sewn with a minimum of one child hanging on my arm, and they loved playing with the placement of each design. The last EPP project I had on the blog was a while ago, but my son still uses this tote bag all the time.

DIY Fabric Scrap Ornament Tutorial

 

Make a DIY fabric scrap ornament for the fabric lover in your life - fill a simple glass ball with fabric scraps! This is a festive way to display some of your projects from the year, and a cheap DIY Christmas ornament!I’ve been crafting up ornaments all weekend (more tutorials coming soon!), and couldn’t resist this quick project to use up some of my favorite scraps from last year’s holiday gifts. This DIY fabric scrap ornament would make a perfect present along with a few sewing trinkets, or just to decorate your own tree! I saw something similar on Facebook but forgot to ‘save’ it and now can’t find the original inspiration after searching Google/Facebook/Pinterest – but this was not my own idea (although I did add the selvage as a creative touch!). I hate throwing away scraps, and this puts the prettiest ones on display!
