My scrap basket is actually made from scraps . . . . It's probably trying to tell me something. I often think of throwing them all out but can't do it. Maybe I need to find more ways to use them up.
For instance, I love this necklace from Anthropologie -
Wonder if this would work with my Civil War repro scraps?? I guess you would just need to connect long strips, tie a few knots and voila! Fabric scraps necklace/scarf.
Here are some colorful braided strips strung together and accented with a fabric flower.
I'm guessing it would never look this good on me, however. I'd probably just look like someone dumped my basket of scraps on my head in a fabric bucket challenge . . . .
Yoyo necklace anyone?
Apparently, this one is a baby teething necklace for mommy to wear. Glad I'm out of that phase . . . . Girl, make sure that doesn't bleed onto your white shirt when it gets wet.
This one is even kind of cute.
Let me know if you've ever tried doing something like this with fabric strips and if it worked - then maybe I'll try it too.
