I am sure many quilters have at least a couple of finished blocks at home they ended up not using. So what can you do with them? Here is one idea. Make a basket you can use to put for example rolls, bread, or croissants in it. Or use it for your decorations. Instead of sewing the corners together I decided to sew on some ribbons. This way I can wash them better, iron it if neccessary and even use it as a table topper.

I still need to cut off the threads as you can see in the picture. I was just too lazy so far... ;)

For this project you can use the smallest fabric leftovers. Besides fabric you need some fiberfill, rice, felt, thicker thread, and anything for the hair. The directions called for certain wool but I didn't have it at home so I used what I had available.

I will make some with christmas fabric and some with neutral fabric so they can be out all year long. I think they make a great gift as well.

scraps projects

I am really into projects where I can use lots of my small fabric scraps.

Within the next couple of days I will post the ones I am working on right now. They make great little gifts for family, friends, or yourself. ;)

Here are littel drawstring bags. You can use them for example to put small gifts in for a birthday or christmas present, or make more for an advent calendar.

I love this fabric by the way!!! It was a freebie when I ordered some fabric on ebay I think. I have to find out who is making it so I can order some more for my christmas projects.
