Scraps Sewn to Adding Machine Tapes
This tutorial is the part of the series on how to make new fabric pieces from leftover scraps.
What Can You Do with Scrappy Strips?
– Quilt blocks – Sashing strips – Clothing patches – Bookmarks – Soft toys – Picture frame borders – Cushion covers – Mug rugs – Joining strips – Junk journals
– Adding machine tape – Old store receipts – Fabric remnants – Cutting mat – Rotary cutter – Ruler
Step 1: Set Up Your Paper Strips and Sewing Machine
To create the backing of our scrappy strips, we’ll use adding paper or some other thin type of paper.
For this project, I’m using fabric pieces that go across the short side. Decide what you’d like to do, and find scraps of fabric that fit.
Step 2: Plan Your Strip and Pick Out Fabric Remnants
Make sure that the fabric pieces go over each edge of the tape, and then sew the pieces together onto the paper.
Step 3: Sew Your First Pieces.
Continue sewing remnants onto your scrappy strips. After every few pieces, use your rotary tool to trim excess fabric from either side of the strip.
Repeat Until the Paper Strip is Covered
