Remnant fabrics from projects can really mount up very quickly and surprise you.. Without realising you might end up with bags full of pesky odd size fabrics..
One particular type of fabric scraps that I have collected over the years of crafting (and don't know what to do with them other than make tape to use for binding) are long fabric strips - too narrow for scrap bags or binding but too cute to be chucked out..
A really neat project done by a talented lady (Azzah of Sewfabby) got me all excited and immediately I went to work on producing something similar
A fabric tape works like a sellotape but with a cuter personality. They are very easy to make and cost very little. A wonderful project that would be enjoyed by both kids and adults.
Here's a simple how to:
All you need are fabric strips and double sided tape in the width of your choice (for best result, it should match the width of your fabric strips).
For wider scrap fabrics, paste the double sided tape on the wrong side of the fabric to your desired length and use a rotary cutter to cut the strip out
After rolls of double sided tapes and various fabric strips later, you will need to figure out how best to store them. I find folding them over some old cardboard works best..
And.. why stop at fabric strips..
I have a tin full of lace scraps to kawaii to dispose..
Use the same method and produce cute lace-tapes
