Every time I wind down a project for a client, I’m usually left with a pile of little fabric remnants from upholstery projects, window treatments, pillows, etc. Most of the time, they’re not big enough to make anything on their own, and so often, I end up just throwing them away.
Well, a couple of months ago, I decided that it was incredibly sad to throw away these beautiful fabrics–even the small little scraps–so I decided that when I’m left with a bunch of little scraps from a project, I’m going to start turning them into quilted patchwork throws as a client gift.
I’ll be making my first one this afternoon using this pile of fabric remnants:
I’ll take pictures along the way so that if you don’t already know how to make one, you can learn how simple it is! All you need is the most basic sewing skills. They really do make great gifts!!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I had high hopes of getting lots accomplished around the condo this weekend, but this weather that we’re having just makes me want to crawl in bed, drink hot chocolate, and watch movies. We’ll see if I can overcome the urge to be lazy and actually get things done.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
I hope you’ll join me on my DIY and decorating journey! If you want to follow my projects and progress, you can subscribe below and have each new post delivered to your email inbox. That way you’ll never miss a thing!
