Scrap Happy- June

Still having loads of fun with my scraps of fabric.  I made a little dress for Miss F’s doll to match her dress.

Wonder if the guarantee on the elastic I used still holds good?

Price 1/6 i.e. before decimalization!!

Some felt brooches.

The idea for these came from a D&K book called The Crafters Year. I have an idea for some different ones. Finally this picture.

I confess I bought the bird button but that was all! Took me ages to decide what to do with it. Eventually I settled for mounting it on card ( Back of a notebook) and covering the back with white felt.

I think it will look good as part of my Easter decorations next year. Inspiration from a book called Sewing for Spring by Lynette Anderson. The hexie quilt continues to grow slowly, I will show that again next month as the rows get longer progress seems slower.

Please have a look at these other contributors.

    oh those felt brooches are so cute ^^

  4. Loved all the uses for your scraps and the cute button. The fairy bag was my favorite. I need to find some of that elastic with it’s guarantee. 🙂

  5. What lovely ideas to use up scraps! The elastic made me smile – it surely has to be a charity shop find, you can’t have had it in your stash all this time?!

    • I think I probably inherited from my Mum or step Mum, but goodness knows how long it’s been lurking at the bottom of my sewing box!

  6. How pretty and “boil proof” I had forgotten about boiling clothes. 😀

  7. You’re making the most of your odds and ends of scraps!

  8. Your stitches are very even And small well done

  9. What a lovely collection of scraps put to good use! Darling little sweater for the grand too. :- )

  10. I love all the things you’ve made here!

  11. I will have to check these out as I love new and creative ways to use up scraps !
