Book Description

Discover 20 fresh, inspiring ways to turn your fabric stash into wonderful items and gifts.

How do you keep your piles of scrap fabric from growing out of control? Sew with them, of course!

In this inspirational book, best-selling author Debbie von Grabler-Crozier shows you how to stitch 20 stylish, fresh items from very small amounts of fabric. From tiny scraps that can be transformed into patchworked coasters, strips that can be made into scrap bunting and offcuts that can be used for pouches or pincushions, your treasured scraps can be given a new lease of life!

An invaluable crash-course on key techniques is included at the beginning of the book, and every project includes clear step-by-step instructions and a stunning photograph of the finished design to inspire. Furthermore, there are templates for particular projects provided at the back of the book, so you can sew your items with ease.

If you're a scrapaholic like me and always on the lookout for scrappy projects, then you will love this book! There are 20 unique little projects that should cater for just about any taste alongside excellent tips on tools and techniques designed for quick and easy makes. Each project outlines what you need, what to cut, the templates and the how to make it in simple, easy to understand steps. The book also teaches a number of different applications including sewing, patchwork and applique (hand and machine) and includes instructions for a coin purse, earphone pouch, wall banners, bowl covers, plant hangers, place mats, bunting, pot holders, a Folk-Art Rooster and more. The book itself is a nice space-saving size 21.5 cm x 15.5 cm. As a result, bear in mind that some of the templates will have to be photocopied and enlarged. This wasn't a problem for me, especially given the scope of projects included in the book. It is certainly a book I would recommend, not just for yourself but for gifts and quick makes. With a keen price and 20 super little projects, you won't run out of inspiration with this one!

Amazon Customer Review

I really do like this book, it has some fabulous ideas in it. The bunting and the hanging plant basket are definitely on my to do list. I think all of us who sew have a tonne of scraps to use and I think this little book of ideas will come in very handy.


Amazon Customer Review

Fantastic range of ideas for using up all those odd scraps that you never know what to do with. Book is nice size too.


Amazon Customer Review

Includes instructions on how to make several household items just using small pieces of fabric. Nice variety of items and well written instructions, I would probably make all of them in time. Would make a nice gift for a sewer.
