Fabric Scrap Projects

Don't let those fabric scraps and remnants go to waste. Turn them into clever crafts and home decor accents.

Revive the art of rag rug making with this easy technique. With a little braiding and a little sewing, you can make this throwback craft that works no matter what the decade.

Dressed-Up Basket

Take a basic wire basket a step toward pretty. Weave long strips of torn fabric through the holes of a wire basket. Tie knots on the back of the basket to secure each strip.

Embellished Vase

Give a plain vase a boost with a scrap of elegant lace fabric. Simply measure and cut the lace to size, wrap around the vase, and secure with glue.

Fabric Scrap Curtains

Jazz up plain curtains with fabric scraps in coordinating colors. Cut out various size triangles and arrange in a connected pattern (with the tips touching). Sew triangles to the curtain panel.

Simple Tissue-Pack Cover

Sew this simple cover for a travel tissue pack, and your purse will thank you. Whip up a handful (they're easy), and give them to friends.
