Stash Busting Projects to Make with Fabric Scraps

If you sew or do any type of crafting that involves fabric, you definitely have fabric scraps piled up somewhere in your work space.  We all do it:  hoard small scraps of fabric that are too large to toss away, yet too small to make into something.  That is, until you combine your small scraps into something bigger and beautiful!  To help you with your stash busting, I’ve collected twenty fun and easy to make projects that you can make with fabric scraps.

To help hold all your fabric scraps together for most sewing projects, I highly recommend using Stick Double Sided Fusible Interfacing!  Stick is a double sided fusible web that works like glue. Fuse fabric to stick it to another piece of fabric or to a porous surface such as wood or cardboard. This lightweight, sheer webbing does not add bulk to fabrics joined together.  It’s perfect for working with fabric scraps!
