Saving fabric scraps can be worthwhile.
Leftovers from a favorite project. Remnants from an old dress. Various scraps can be pieces with lovely potential.
Recently, a customer brought me her pair of raspberry velvet Magnolia Pearl bloomers and asked me to make a rosette to match them.
While searching through a basket of garment scraps, I came across a skirt my daughter wore when she was about four years old. I probably should have donated it long ago but the fabrics were too lovely not to save. With its beautiful raspberry velvet hues and trims, it was a perfect match!
I tore some of the ombre lining and used the strips along with velvet, crinkle ribbon, crochet lace, vintage lace, a rhinestone center and a snippet of tea stained doily to complete the pin.
What are some of your favorite projects you have made with unexpected scraps?
Thank you for visiting!
