5 {Easy} and {Inexpensive} Ways to Use Fabric Scraps

There is nothing better than feeling a little productive while being cooped up inside on a cold winter day. If you, like me, have random scraps of fabric leftover from completed or abandoned (ahem….) projects then this list is for you! Here is my list of Top 5 Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Use Fabric Scraps. Perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Top 5 Easy and Inexpensive Ways to Use Fabric Scraps

  1. Homemade Dryer Sheets

View From the Fridge suggests making Homemade Dryer Sheets. The recipe calls for just a few simple ingredients that you will likely have already around your house. It is non-toxic and eco-friendly!

Why use the TOXIC store bought dryer sheets?!? These DIY Homemade Dryer Sheets only require a couple ingredients and are SO MUCH healthier for your family! From View From The Fridge:

2. Fabric Scrap Bookmarks

The Borrowed Abode offers easy to follow directions for Fabric Scrap Bookmarks. The directions suggest using a sewing machine, but I have found equal (and I think) easier success using fabric glue. Woot!

3. Glam Makeup Brush

This use is by FAR my favorite! Use your scraps to jazz up the handles of your favorite brushes! Don’t stop at makeup brushes, follow the same process to glitz up the back of a paddle brush…the possibilities are limitless. Thanks Lemon Jitters for these DIY directions for a Glam Makeup Brush.

4. Fabric Feather Dishtowels

Adding embellishments of fabric can take simple hand towels to a whole new level. Check out these Fabric Feather Dishtowels by Flamingo Toes for some great inspirations.

5. Flannel Coasters

Last but not least, who wouldn’t love a fabulous Flannel Coaster for their beverage of choice? View From the Fridge brings up the rear of this list with this simple, but useful way to keep those nasty water rings off your favorite fine furnishings.
