A quick fabric stash busting idea

So after reading Marie’s What do you do with your fabric scraps? post I was determined to get rid of a couple of scraps of fabric that I’ve had in my stash for, like, ever. Marie’s idea to sell fabrics on ebay is ingenious, but I wanted to use mine (and was too lazy to start measuring, neatening and folding fabric ready for selling to be quite frank with you!).

It was only when I was clearing out a couple of drawers for the baby’s bits and bobs that it occurred to me – drawer linings! Mere moments later (if we discount the days spent waiting for a staple gun to arrive of course but we’ll gloss over that) the scraps were used and the drawers looked much prettier, ready for the infinite cuteness that is a baby’s wardrobe.

Um, so i could do a tutorial but you’d probably shake your fist at me and shout DO YOU THINK I’M SOME KIND OF IMBECILE THAT DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO FOLD FABRIC AND POINT A FRIGGIN STAPLE GUN? so I won’t do that.  But yay! Fabric – you are so busted. And I now have a staple gun. Hear my DIY roar.

  1. It’s funny cos I was just thinking about this myself – and have been making hair bows out of them. I also did up my daughters dolls house, making curtains and blinds (yes, really) I believe it is an offence to throw scraps, however small in the bin 🙂 xx
