today i’m putting my scrap busting to a good cause!
(you can go HERE to read more about it–but basically it’s donating skirts to local foster care! Skirts are so easy a great beginner sewing project!!!)
I went to Joann and got a whole bunch of fabric (i only bought 6 inches of each one except for 2! (the main parts of two of those skirts)
Here’s three fun ways to use of scraps–
the big strips:
these are 5 inch strips sewn together…I left a slit on both sides so they had room to run and play….I totally wanted to make this into a pencil skirt….(or even a long maxi) but since I’m giving them away to –i wanted them to be able to fit a variety of girls!
next up…similar…but smaller strips around the bottom…
each skirt is a basic box shape…with the waist cinched in with elastic!
and last…even smaller strips…sewn together quilt style..
notice her knee….she scrapped it doing this…
