We’re having a little break from my holiday snaps today because as I mentioned before, Sharon from the teacup incident blog has organised a Fabulous Scrap Fabric Swap and today is the big reveal of whose taken part and what they have made (drum roll please).
Head over to Sharon’s blog for all the details and links but here are my makes.
I started by making a Pinterest board of ideas of things to make with fabric scraps.
I wanted to make useful holiday items and started with this lined zippered purse. I found a tonne of inspiration on the In Colour Order blog and followed the tutorial there. I added a beaded pull after seeing what Sharon had made with hers.
Next up was a lined drawstring bag for toiletries or camera supplies.
I followed this lined-drawstring-bag-tutorial here
And with the iddly-widdy bits left over I made a lavender bag because you can never have too many of those.
It’s been fun doing this – I’ve been lucky to find internet friends with common likes during the time that I’ve been blogging and it was fun to take part, send and receive parcels and have a little piece of community. Thanks Sharon for organising this.
