Sewing Scraps to Adding Machine Tape
While these scrappy strips work especially well for quilt blocks, you can use them anywhere you need long strips of fabric.
– Adding machine tape – Old store receipts – Fabric remnants – Cutting mat – Rotary cutter – Ruler
What Can You Do with Scrappy Strips?

Step 1: Set Up Your Paper Strips and Sewing Machine
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.
Don’t worry about making your lines super straight; being a little messy just adds to the character of the finished product.
