50 Scrap Fabric Crafts For Rems Reborn Again


jandofabrics scrap fabric crafts

 

Instead of tossing your tiny fabric scraps or hoarding your size-able rems until who-knows-when, why not decide to play your part in assisting in the Earth Day recycling efforts by pulling them out, sorting, and inspecting them for quality and usability in a scrap fabric craft project.

For many seamstresses and designers, fabric accumulation such as this finds its home in closets and storage bins awaiting the day they’ll be called to service again; a day that usually never comes. Whether due to the demands on our time and energy, ideas that slowly come yet quickly fade, or the notion of ‘out of sight, out of mind‘, the amount of life still left in each nostalgic piece is enough to inspire a well of creative crafts that don’t require much yardage or labor at all if we give them half a chance. In fact, if you take a good look at the fabric stash you’re sitting on, you may be surprised at the wealth and potential lying beneath you.

If this sounds like you and you’ve been bitten by the fabric sustainability bug, then here are some great ideas for turning those oldies but goodies into inspiring, money-making crafts just in time for Earth Day celebrations.
