A little while ago, I came across this tutorial by Crazy Mom Quilts and thought it was such a good idea, I had to try it. My scrap bins are overflowing and I really need to make something with them and we repainted the dining room recently... so, of course new wall art was in order.
I made a quick trip to the Michael's near my house, bought a few canvases and some Modge Podge and immediately got started. I selected blue and orange scraps to go with a new quilt I'm working on and which will go on the wall in the dining room.
I had so much fun making these! Some of the scraps I selected have cute little messages...
Some of them have cute pigs...
I just love how they brighten up the dining room.
I've gotten so many compliments on my wall "art", I'm now getting orders! :-) My daughter also wants to make some for her bedroom so I'll be making more of these this weekend.
Have you used scraps for things other than quilts or sewn accessories? Let me know in the comments - I would love to get more ideas on using up fabric scraps.
