How to Make Scrap Fabric Twine


Whenever I work on a sewing or quilting project, I always end up with leftover bits and pieces of fabric that I simply can’t bear to throw away. (I mean, it might be useful someday!) As a result, I have almost as much scrap fabric in my stash as actual useful yardage. And, it would seem that I’m not alone in my odds-and-ends fabric hoarding, because Cintia from My Poppet has put together this brilliant scrap fabric twine tutorial for just such a problem.

Are you feeling as inspired as I am? Take a look at the video above, then check out the full project over on My Poppet.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be spending the rest of the afternoon turning my scrap bin treasures into something both gorgeous and useful!
