Fast and Easy Scrap Busters!


Hey there, it’s Stef from Girl. Inspired. Sometimes a fabric line comes along that I just can’t get enough of. “Wonderland” continues to be my current crush and I am looking for quick projects to use up some of my smaller scraps! So today I wanted to share a couple of the easiest projects you can do with your leftover scraps of fabric.


For starters, I need to show off as many of these little bunnies as I can. Sewing a quick pocket onto a plain tee is the perfect way to add just a little pizazz!


Pockets are so simple – click here to print a cutting template for a perfectly sized pocket to show off the bunny. Simply cut out the pocket (fold pattern down the center and cut on the fold for perfect symmetry) then fold the bottom tip up 1/8″ or so and press. Fold around all the edges by 1/2″ and press well. Double fold the top edge by another 1/2″ and press.


Stitch across the top to secure the top edge.


Grab a plain tee and a gluestick. Add a little glue to the back side of the pocket and press it into place on the tee.



With a ballpoint needle in your sewing machine, stitch around the side and bottom edges. Leave the top open and your pocket is done!


I’ve been seeing so many adorable hexie projects, I just had to give it a go


I pieced just a few together and stitched them down in lieu of a pocket for a fun twist.


Small scraps also make darling little pennant banners for cake toppers, scrapbooking, or to decorate these awesome hot air balloons! You can find the free sewing pattern for these tabletop hot air balloons over at Girl. Inspired. by clicking here.


I also made these cute, little basket liners just before Easter. The free tutorial is here. So many fun, quick projects to make! What do you like to sew with your leftover scraps?
