I always have scraps stuck to every surface after I'm finished with a sewing project. Any time I move to throw them away I hear my mother's voice in my head telling me not to waste something still usable. So what better mother's day gift than to turn things that would have been wasted into art?

This is a great way to use scraps left over from a project to decorate anything. For this project, I made a flower for a headband, but they can be used on bags, flip flops, clothing. Get creative!

Step 1: Materials

Scraps of fabric, in as many sizes or colors as you want. Jersey fabric (t-shirt fabric) is great for this project, as the raw edges don't unravel.

Needle and thread


Pins or buttons for the center of the flower (optional)

This project is very open to creativity, so go wild with your materials! Neon pink, black velvet, shimmery satin, use them all! Maybe even together!
These look really fun and quick to do, I'm fairly new to sewing so don't have many 'bits' yet but look forward to making these ... and some t-shirt bags too lol
i really like these- very cute, simple, quick and cheap! :)
