It's Monday, so time to head out and see what ideas I can find on one theme. Today we are looking for quick and easy projects (or at least quick OR easy) using scraps of fabric.
The first idea I came across speaks to me immediately: Re-useable Kitchen Towels. I found a wonderful tutorials HERE from Sew a Straight Line. Her directions are very clear and easy to follow. She uses a 2 yard piece of fabric, but I have some pieces of flannel that I think would be perfect for this.
Do you have some 1/8 yard cuts? How about THIS messenger bag tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens?
OMG... I absolutely HAVE to make these for my grandsons! One would fill it with tools and the other would fill it with cars and trains!! Zip over to Make It Love It for the how to.
I don't usually post ideas that have a price tag, but I just wanted to share this particular one with you because I bought it myself and LOVE it! This pattern is for hand crafted luggage tags. I bought this from StudioCherie and was THRILLED with it! She give fantastic directions and a PDF that is well done.
Check Cherie's work out!
Have a little one in your world that might like to work with paper dolls and fabric? Pop over to Do it Yourself Pins for a sweet idea that I would have loved!
With my food blog plans moving forward at a rapid rate (we are going live NEXT WEEK!!!) cooking related ideas appeal to me. Here is a hotpad tutorial you might want to take a peek at from Spun Sugar Quilt.
This idea from Tatertots & Jello for a grocery bag container has been pinned like 200,000 times! It's such a great idea AND she give a wonderful "how to" on folding the bags so they come out like wet wipes! Honestly, you've got to see it!
Do you have some really small scraps you just would love to work with? How about these key chains from Craftiness Is Not Optional? She has some wonderful ideas that would be great to bring out your creative side!
Does your camera strap have a cover? A lovely, comfy one? If not, head on over to the Moda Bake Shop for directions to make this one:
How about a really cook mug rug tutorial? The colors she used caught my eye, but her easy-to-follow directions sunk the deal! Heading back into my fabric space to make one of these! Head over to Molly's Meanderings to see how!
I am excited to give some of these ideas a try. Which one appeals to you? Any that you want to fire up the machine and give a whirl? Do share!
