How to use up fabric scraps.

Here's some inspiration on how to use your scrap bag

There are so many ways you can use up your fabric scraps. For younger children lots of fun can be had cutting and sticking. Why not print off a simple outline of their favorite animal and then let them fill it in with pieces of fabric? If you have some card at home you could also cut out a mask shape which can then be decorated. Any larger pieces going spare in your stash could be used to make a matching cape so they can play super heroes. Perhaps you are planning on using this time at home to teach your children a new skill like sewing. Small scraps are fantastic for patchwork, applique or even making dolly clothes. Let your imaginations run wild and most of all have fun!
