Down to the littlest piece

Several Posts ago, I posted a tutorial for the "Five Fat Quater Scarf".

If you have been kind enough to have been reading my blog for a while, you would know that I can't throw away left over fabrics. Even the tiny pieces... I feel like there is some use for them and I have a hard time saying good-bye. With the Five Fat Quater Scarf, you will pretty much use the whole thing, but still, I had some left overs. Then, I came across this T-shirt in Rachel's closet. The colors clicked.


I ironed the interfacing on the left over fabric and cutout circles. (no patterns nessesary, I just used tiny cups from my kitchen.), then, I appliqued them onto the T-shirt.

I thought the circles gave the T-shirt a modern look and was happy with the result.

Well, I still had some leftovers (at this point, you are probably rolling your eyes), so I came up with this to go with the shirt.


There, I used up all the fabric from that project and it feels nice!

On my next post I want to show you some of the awesome thrift store finds and what I have done with them. Well everyone, have a fabulous week!

Oh yes can totally relate to not being able to throw out the tinest piece. Great ideas on how to use them up though.

What a great idea! I have six t-shirt sitting on my sewing table. We were going to use bleach to make designs but the bleached shirt my sil made in July already have holes. This is a perfect alternative. I have tons of scraps! You are just so creative!!
