But now you are wondering, “What do I do with them all?” Don’t worry. Here is fabric flower to the rescue!

Here are five fabulous ways to use up every bit of fabric scrap that is taking up valuable real estate in your studio. You can make flowers for brooches, headbands, embellishments, or even as necklaces. You can either make them using a simple tutorial or buy PDF patterns online. But whatever you use to make them, you will use up all your scraps to make more room for other sewing supplies in your studio.
