Helpful Scrap Sewing Tips
I hope you liked these clever ideas to upcycle fabric scraps. Now, a few tips to make your scrap sewing easier, and your fabric scraps pile better organized.
How do you organize sewing scraps?
Oh, those little bits of fabric can so easily take over the sewing room, don't they? I've been there, but by now I'd like to share a few ideas that might make your life easier too.
To store and organize my own pile of scrap fabric, I currently use a drawer unit on castors, and boxes. Every drawer is divided into as many parts as I need, using either cardboard boxes, or plastic boxes with lids. Here's how to make your own, perfectly sized diy drawer dividers, or diy drawer organizers.
For example, I have a separate box for interfacing scraps, a separate box for knits and other stretchy materials, and the largest box, actually, an entire drawer is allocated to quilting cotton prints. I keep quilting cotton solids separately for easy use.
If you have a lot of scraps, consider creating these diy storage boxes with lids.
What can I do with useless fabric?
Sadly, there are pieces of fabric you can't possibly sew together into a new piece of fabric. those include small offcuts, and tiny fabric strips resulting from trimming excess fabric on the seam allowance when sewing a project.
Well, I've got a solution for you: use them as stuffing material. When sewing a plushie, or a small pillow, you can easily use some of the scrap fabric and mix it with poly-fill. You'll save on materials and go green. Also, you don't even need to cut the fabric into small pieces, you've already got it shredded!
