In my recent move across the country, I ditched a bunch of fabric scraps – well, now I’m regretting it. There are so many great projects to make with small pieces of fabric, and I’ve compiled some ideas so that you can see for yourself. Some of the projects use larger scraps (like these fabric bins), while others use smaller bits you’d barely think of salvaging. Think again! Several of these projects require basic sewing, but a few require none at all. Interested to see more? Click through the jump!
