Mini Charm packs are a great way to get a variety of fabrics with little investment. If you are making your own it is a fantastic way to use up your scraps. Who knew you could buy a whole collection of fabric for less that a fancy drink. The mini charms are generally less than $5. If you are turning your left overs into useable pieces a mini charm square is sized 2.5×2.5 while their bigger sister the charm squares measures 5×5. You can use the same patterns for both with adjustments for size.
