Our team has been busy using up the scraps they received as part of our Scrap Swap series and writing up some tutorials on how to use them. Today Heather is showing us a fun project that uses scraps and gets the kids involved, so double the fun! Check out Heather's post below and then follow along with the series to see all of the fun projects the team has in store!
Hello! Heather from All Things Katy!, here! I’m sew excited to participate in Pattern Revolution’s Scrap Swap!
Each team member was assigned another member and we mailed off padded envelopes of fabric- no more than a yard but bigger than a 12” square. Then, we were challenged to create something fun, but not a garment. Soooo… here goes!
My Lil’ Miss will be starting a new school year, soon. Second.Grade. Already!! She’s nervous/excited to meet her new teacher, start a new year and learn lots of new things. Mostly, though, she’s anxious to see what friends she’ll have in her class. Nothing sweeter than having your bestie in class with you! :)
So, while we wait for class lists, I thought it would be fun for Missy to create some friendship bracelets for her friends. Missy was excited to receive our filled envelope of fabric scraps (Thanks, Rebekah! :). She happily sorted through them and selected *just the right* fabrics for each friend.
Then, Missy ripped the fabrics into strips. Lil’ Miss LOVED ripping through the fabrics!
She grouped the strips into sets of three and then braided them.
We sized the finished braids around Missy’s wrist and tied them off.
Next, she used colorful cardstock to create name cards for her friends.
We finished up the project by wrapping the finished braids around the colorful name cards and, ta-da!!- friendship bracelets!! Sew much fun!

We're continuing our scrap swap, and today's post is very special - this project is a great one for scraps, and will help girls across the world attend school. As we gear up to sew cute clothes for our kiddos as they head back to school - please consider sewing up a purse or two to make sure that girls in Africa will be able to attend school!!!
When you are working with scraps, you may have a piece you love, but not enough of it to create the pattern you want. This is when piecing is your best friend. Fabrics don't have to be a perfect match in order to work well together. Play around and have fun until you create a look you love.
Today we are back with a bunch of fun inspirational projects to use up those woven scraps that you have sitting around. If you think your scraps are only good for a trash heap, or stuffing a pillow - think again!!!!!
Here at PR, we love breathing new life into scraps - and as we head into Back to school season, it seemed the appropriate time to once again hold a PR scrap swap. We will spend all of August inspiring you to sew for school (both Uniform and Free Style), so clear out some space and sew up some scraps!!!
So we are wrapping up scrap swap week with a ton of great knit projects to get your creative juices flowing as you head into the weekend! We hope you are inspired by these projects, share what you've sewn with scraps on our Facebook Page and instagram #bustascrap. If your scraps aren't inspiring you, find a sewing friend to trade with - it seriously is like Christmas morning.
