DIY Fabric Remnants Ideas

The pictures below are things I have made at one time or another. Most of these projects take very little fabric, a Fat Quarter or less.

So start sewing!  Remnant fabric pieces can be used for so many projects.  And these projects make fabulous gift ideas…  Purses, Key Fobs, Cell Phone/Gadget Holder, Tissue Holders, Doll Quilt Blanket, Crayon Roll-up, Valances, Runners, Place Mats, Fabric Coasters, Memo Board, Pillows, just to name a few.  The possibilities are endless.  It will keep me up at night just thinking about them! ha!  Hold on to your fabric.  You never know when a piece of fabric will inspire you to get creative!

I don’t sew with a pattern, I wing it as I go.  There are tons of free patterns on-line, though.  Sew on!

  2. These are great ideas to use fabric scrapes that none of us will throw away, no matter how small

    • Thanks! I keep trying to destash my fabric, but I just can’t do it! Ha! I always say to myself, “this little piece would be great for…”!

  4. I love your ideas. Your fabrics are just great. Wish I could find a stash like that! I did find some patterns for a quarter when they were moving a Joann store a few months ago. Bookmarking your site!

  5. What beautiful projects and fabrics! I love what you’ve done and thanks for the inspiration. I’m hoping to squeeze in a pillow project, using pillowcase remnants leftover from when I made my daughter’s bedroom valances. It’s so hard to find the time, tho.
