Hi! Quilty Friends! I've got he cutest little project to share with you today made from scraps.
The binder divider was made using Patchouli Moon Studio's Scrappy Background Tutorial. It's a free download on Craftsy. You can find it by clicking here. Daryl has other great patterns and freebies available also. Click here for her latest fabric folder pattern with some inspirational pattern tester ideas. This is what inspired my fabric divider.
You ever had a slap in the head moment? Why didn't I think of this?! I love how quickly it came together once I got the hang of the freestyle, impromptu sewing.
The hardest part was deciding what applique to add. How cute is this! Fusible applique and a little stitching made it easy peasy.
Originally the plan was to make button holes...but as I searched through my buttons I had an epiphany. BUTTONS HAVE HOLES!
The zigzag stitch and some careful stitching to hold them in place.
The backing was also pieces of scrap. There was not one piece of stabilizer in the house so I decided to just sew the front and back together using the birthing method. Right sides together, sew all around the outside, leave a 2 inch hole. Turn right side out, stitch around the outside and TA-DA! Done!
So what are you going to make with a scrappy background?
