What to do with all that scrap yarn??? Why make a bag!

Step 1: Supplies

- Scrap Yarn
- Light weight water soluble stabilizer
- Fabric for straps and lining of bag
How much you need of these items depends on the size of the bag you are making.

You will also need to use a sewing machine.

This is wonderful! I bought 20+ skiens of yarn at a garage sale for only $3 and then bought many more at another (curse you impulse buying!!) and it has been littering my closet floor!

Lol. I'm kind of jealous. Even though I also have alot of hand me down yarn hanging around. My mom only makes afghans so she gives me here left over skeins.

Those bags are just toooooo wonderful...I dont have any yarn but wish I did..thanks for sharing..Where do you get the water soluble paper??

Just saw a sewing show on PBS use some. I think it's saposta be for quilting. If that helps you narrow down where it may be located at all.

You can get it at a fabric store. We got ours at Hershners. I don't remember what section though. We had to ask the clerk.

Very cute. I've done scarves this way, but never bags!

Thank you. We were inspired to this by seeing a scarf done like this.
