Jennie Rayment shows us a simple and ingenious way of using up scraps of fabric to produce toys or decorations which could be used for any festivity, including Christmas.
Use your scraps
Jennie’s balls can be made into a quick and easy toy or decoration. Both are great ways to use your scraps to produce this simple, safe fabric ball.
If you have a wavy cutter blade or pinking shears, you could also use them to give the edge of the fabric a little more interest.
Might other possibilities be to make the balls and leave them as a garland?
This is a comment from one of our viewers:
I’ve spent a wet and windy couple of hours snug in my sewing room (I love that expression “my sewing room”!), making one of Jennie’s scrap balls for my granddaughter. She’s a 19-month-old spark that lights up our lives. Thanks, Jennie – keep the ideas coming – please!!
Happy Christmas to all.
