Small Stash Sewing: 24 Projects Using Designer ...

TIP: Creating small anchors for layered embellishments is a great design option if layering is a bit challenging. Focusing on a small area of layered clusters is less intimidating and offers lots of opportunity to practice your layering skills.

Small Stash Sewing: 24 Projects Using Designer ...

Sometimes, I prefer to work on a super involved project (miniature diorama) and at other times, I might be in the mood to work on a small project (practicing watercolor techniques). In short, I enjoy a lot of variety and options when it comes to my craft projects!

Next, I created fun embellishment clusters using pocket stickers! Each pocket contains a small cluster for floral die cuts, puffy stickers, chipboard phrases, and puffy dots. The pockets are backed with adhesive foam for added dimension and height. Normally, I would have hoarded these pocket stickers, however, they are way too cute NOT to use!

Stripy Spheres pattern: this easily customizable toy pattern is a fun way to play with colors. The small amount of yarn required makes it great for Mini Packs or stashbusting. Designed by Emily Kintigh.

The downside with small projects is that you might produce scraps at a higher rate than you can sew them up. A great way to use a lot at once is to sew them all together and create a new fabric. Take a look at this super cool jacket that Katie Kortman sewed with fabric made from scraps. The Opal cardigan View C is a coatigan that can be used for this purpose. You can make it long like the pattern or shorten it.

Cut down on textile waste, which exacts a heavy toll on the environment and public health, by giving old clothes a second life. Alter out-of-style garments by embroidering, reshaping, or using nontoxic dye to give them a new look. Take inspiration from fashion designers like Daniel Silverstein, who makes colorful, collaged clothing out of fabric scraps, or turn old fabric into a work of art, like weaver Consuelo Jimenez Underwood.

So there you have it. Fat quarters are the perfect way to get your hands on a wide assortment of quilting fabrics without having to buy whole cuts of different types of fabric making it a more popular and less costly way to increase your available fabric stash for future projects.

Do you have more fabric scraps than you can handle? Prepare to dwindle that stash! To make a DIY clutch purse, you just need some fabric scraps and a few other basic supplies. Some of the clutch sewing patterns even use the tiniest scraps of fabric pieced together, allowing you to use some of your favorite fabrics from past projects one more time.

Even your smallest scraps of fabric can be used for this clutch. Choose the size you want, then pair your scraps for a two-toned version if you'd like. You can even add some leather scraps into the mix. (See the designer's other photos for examples and inspiration for using other types of fabric.)

If you are looking for something with the ultimate flexibility, try using a bullet journal. Set up your sewing journal just the way you like it, and only have the information that makes sense to you, Here are a few blog posts on how people use their bullet journal for sewing: 041b061a72
