I am part of a group on Facebook called Scrappy Girls Club The members post some neat things on there and occasionally I make some things. As the name indicates things normally just use scraps of material and for anyone that sews we have plenty of them.
A lady posted about making mini fabric Easter baskets. The link for the instructions are here. Now despite them being super cute they are very fiddly to make. I used some scraps of material I had left over from Paige's quilt, with some scrap pieces of green. The rabbit print is a multi directional print, but would you believe every rabbit is upside down on the baskets....LOL
This is what I put into the baskets. Stickers, a plastic egg filled with candy. Everything bought from the dollar store. The grandchildren are getting a toy also, as I figured they get enough candy from the "Easter Bunny!!"
It's a perfect size for the one egg. It's also a perfect size for a Kinder Egg or a Cadbury's Cream Egg.
I had half a dozen plastic eggs leftover, so I covered them with scraps of the Easter fabric using white glue. Went to the park and cut some twigs and bought the yellow eggs at the dollar store for my "Easter Tree." I am having to make a bit of an effort this year for Easter as I am hosting a lunch over Easter😏
Now I have to say the other project I am featuring is one of the best and useful things I have made in a long time. It's a Wonder Clip Cushion and the instructions for making it are here. This indeed does use just scraps of material. I am also finding my hands are getting stiffer and more arthritic as I am getting older. So this makes it so much easier to pick up the wonder clips.
I use a lot of Wonder Clips especially when I am sewing with cork as you can't pin cork as it will make holes in it.
Have you come across any neat projects that use scraps of material recently? Are you a member of the Scrappy Girls Club?
