Fab Fabrics: Scrap Ecochic
We’ve talked about the awesomeness of crafting with fabric scraps before, but not everyone has a shamefully stuffed scrap bin like the one in my craft room. If you’re not a hoarder of fabric scraps but still want to get your craft on, don’t fret! Etsy seller Scrap Ecochic has you covered!
Scrap Ecochic proprietress Jessica says:
I have always been aware of the impact of reducing, reusing and recycling but only recently have I made it my goal to do away with my personal footprint on this earth. So this shop is my way of showing that you can create gorgeous goodies using the three R (reduce, reuse, recycle).
I couldn’t agree more!
Her scrap bundles are so beautifully put together. I’m loving the color combinations she’s chosen. If you’re looking for other sorts of notions, Scrap Ecochic has a selection of beautiful vintage lace and trim! She’s also got some lovely packs of upholstery samples and fabric scraps in her other Etsy shop: Earth Cookie Creations.
Ready to get sewing? Here are a few scrap sewing projects to get you started:
- Lenore shows us how to make a rag rug out of fabric scraps.
- Pieces a little too small for a rag rug but too big to use as stuffing? You can make an iPod cover!
- These upcycled wrist cuffs are a great, simple scrap project.
- It’s also easy and fun to make a fabric scrap banner.
Got any other fun scrap fabric ideas? We’d love to hear them in the comments!
