Scrap Fabric Patchwork Wall Art

Zoica, one of the crafty gals at Two Creative Women, shares a fairly simple project for turning fabric scraps into works of art. All it requires is a few rectangles of fabric and a little sewing. Of course, this is perfect for those last little bits of fabric you’ve been saving, or it could also be a fun way to give sentimental pieces like baby bedding new life.

Colorful Ruffled Circles Pillow Cover

Jessica from Sew Homegrown created a DIY version of a ruffled circles pillow she spied at West Elm. She says she just had to spice it up with more color though and chose scraps from her favorite fabric designer Anna Maria Horner. There is so much I love about this pillow from the vibrant colors to the ruffled and slightly disheveled look of the circles. This is a great scrap buster project that you could easily customize to match your décor.

Have some fabric scraps that are too small for a sewing project? Make them into a cowhide pillow like Jessica from Décor Adventures did! Jessica used free fabric sample books to make a one-of-a-kind cowhide pillow, complete with zig-zag contrast stitching. I honestly adore the color and texture of Jessica’s pillow even more than her Ballard inspiration!

Ornament Table Runner

Vanessa from At the Picket Fence has made the official shift from fall to Christmas in her home with this Ballard-inspired table runner. The $15 price tag is much more palatable to my wallet than Ballard’s $79 asking price, and you may be able to whittle it down even more if you’ve got some drop cloth and fabric remnants on hand.  Isn’t it cute how the ornaments appear to be hanging off the table?
