It’s no secret to any sewing enthusiasts who regularly use batting and fusible felt in their sewing projects: those batting scraps accumulate quickly! Just as fabric scraps do. But while I had tons of use for my fabric scraps, that was not the case with the small pieces of fusible felt. Now, this has changed!
How To Join Batting Scraps
1) Straighten the edges, so there will be no overlapping or holes. Using a rotary cutter helps a lot!
2) Pin, using straight flat pins like these. Pinning will help you keep together the edges you intend to join. You may opt for taping the edges together. Works just as fine!
