Scrap Fabric Creations

Got this book a few Christmases ago. Finally got around to making things with it this summer as experiments before showing the kids in my 4H sewing club how to make them.

The book has some really fun ideas for using scrap fabrics. Some of the items use up so much thread though that it seems like I didn't really save anything. But the items are cute and they are a fun way to whittle down all those scraps I can't bring myself to throw away!
