One really cute way to make something lovely out of scrap fabric (that you might otherwise bin) is to make scrap fabric flowers.
You can add a pin to the back and give or wear them as brooches, or you can sew them directly onto a hat, bag or lapel as a permanent accessory.
So for both I started off with making the petals of the flowers.
Make your Scrap Fabric “Petals”
I used a shorter stitch for the thin men’s shirt cotton and a longer one for the tweed and quilted fabrics.
Sew the edges of your Petals
To assemble your scrap fabric flower, all you have to do is lay out your petals in the design you like and pick out a pretty button (or several) to finish it off.
Hand Sew Your Flower Together
Depending what you plan to do with your scrap fabric flowers you can choose to add a backing to finish it off.
