Scraps. We all have them, but some of us have an easier time getting rid of them than others.
As you can probably imagine, we generate a lot of fabric scraps here at Colette Patterns. Now that we’ve moved into a large studio with lots of space, we are thinking of cost-effective ways to decorate. Small scraps can be challenging to turn into garments, but they’re perfect for home decor projects.
A few ideas we’re tossing around are stuffing a pouf full of scraps, making a crochet or braided rug, and making some type of bunting. Napkins would also be great for our new break area (yay!).
Many of the fabrics we use are pretty silks and cottons in pastel colors. Wouldn’t they make a pretty tassel bunting along the wall? Or making a gradient of colors in a crochet rug? If you don’t have pieces large enough, you could make bias binding from the scraps to decorate the edges of napkins or for a bunting string.
Do you have any favorite tutorials for using scraps? We have plenty of space and white walls to fill!
