This week we’re all about making the most of your fabric scraps and busting that stash, and what better way to do that than to invest in some sewing books packed full of patterns to use up your scraps?
We have got some great fabric stash busting books packed full of ideas for you – before you know it you’ll be transforming that bag of fabric scraps into beautiful finished products. Retro Mama Scrap Happy Sewing by Kim Kruzich is out soon and is packed full of delicious projects including these adorable pin cushions.
The projects combine sewing, patchwork, appliqué and embroidery – all cleverly designed to use up leftover fabrics. Projects include great gifting ideas such as cushions, quilts, baby bibs and soft toys, which will soak up your scraps and create lovely gifts for friends and family.
If you love patchwork or are looking to try it for the first time why not have a look at another great stash busting book: Every Last Piece by Lynn Harris. It is a stunning book containing patterns for 12 scrap quilts. Whether you are into the cool minimalism of modern quilting or a brighter, busier style of quilting you will find something you like.
If you are after pretty patchwork projects then Helen Philipps’ Pretty Patchwork Gifts is the ideal book. It is a gorgeous collection of over 25 lovely patchwork projects which combines applique, embroidery and hand sewing techniques. Make delightful toys and pretty home decor gifts to treasure. Helen uses lots of vintage inspired floral fabrics in her projects but you can put a twist on the patterns by using more contemporary fabrics from your stash.
