DON’T THROW THOSE TEENY TINY SCRAPS AWAY! There are actually lots of things you can do with them. This story is about just one way – turn them into a Scrap Fabric Bookmark!
My current favorite is to lay the scraps down right side up, roughly overlapping each other in as few layers of fabric as possible – ideally one or two layers to keep the bookmark thin.
First, you want to sew up the open seams to make sure all your scraps are safely inside your envelope. If you did the sew & stuff method above then you just need to close that last seam.
I did it in a bowl of cold water, but you could also just run them under the tap. You’ll want to rub a bit to make sure it’s all washed off.
