What You Can Do with Your Leftover Fabric with Scrap Busters

This sewing project called Long Stemmed Fabric Flowers is a great way to get rid of your fabric scraps from other projects. Even if you're a beginner sewist and you haven't made a lot of projects, you can use fabric from clothing and other items made from textiles to make something completely new without having to buy fabric. Let's face it, the nice and never-used or worn fabrics that you can buy from stores can be expensive.

If sewing is a hobby, you don't want to put all the money in your pocket towards it. A great way to save money is to look for scrap busters, which are projects that you can re-use fabric and textiles from projects you've made and are too small to make another project from. Don't waste the scraps of fabric that you spent good money on! To be an even more thrifty sewist, you can grab those old pair of jeans that are well-worn or have a stain somewhere and cut them up to make something completely new! Scrap busters can save you a ton of money in the long run as well as space for storing your scraps.

These flowers are so cute and with all the fabrics out there, you can make endless quantities of colors and prints. I buy fabric quarters all the time and then don't know what to make with them. These will make great decorations for my dining room. Thanks for the idea.

Wow, what a cool idea! These are so fun, and I love how they add such a big splash of color! Perfect for any kitchen that could use a little whimsy

Love these and love the wooden stems that give it some whimsy. I could see adding some velvety leaves in various shades,of green, or even use fabric markers to give the flowers some shading like in nature, if you use single color,fabric. You could even sew,or,glue on some tiny clear glass beads here and there for dew drops! So,pretty... Take one single bloom and add a pin clasp to,it so it can be worn as a brooch!

This is such a great idea to use up scrap fabric strips that you would otherwise throw away. They are quite easy to make once you have made one and the instructions are fairly easy to follow with close up photos. It took me a while to get the scallops right and I ended up making a template myself with paper so I got them all looking the same. these would make a fab gift for Mother's Day or for a birthday gift for a friend.

What a pretty sight. A vase full of beautiful fabric roses.A great gift for Mother's Day ,a birthday,a get well ,a new mom or a just because. They are a great reminder that spring is right around the corner. I am going to make some for my grand kids teachers desk for the class to enjoy in some of my leftover fabric. Make them with cheery fabric to keep away those winter blues. If you love the look of these than why not check out this simple and fast tutorial to learn how to make them. There are also pictures to guide you through.

Have made over a hundreds if these. Love them, like crazy!!!

why are all the fabric flowers made with the rough sides showing? Wouldn't they look more professional if the folded side was on the top side?

I am also having difficulty getting the sewing pattern to upload. I click on - Click here for Sewing Pattern and a blank screen comes up. I thought possibly I wasn't waiting long enough but even in 5minutes nothing comes up. Do you have any other suggestions.

This is a great idea! Thank you for the great pictures and instructions. I really like the rectangular vase with the leaves too. I have got to try this. I wish I had found it in time for the give-away! Oh, my favorite flower growing up was the Iris, then I discovered the pink Peone Rose! Actually I like all flowers, even the cloth ones....

Garroutte, I'm sorry you're having issues. Please try clicking on the link that says "Click here for Sewing Pattern" and you should be led to the instructions. It seems to be working on our end. If you have additional problems let us know. -Editor

I can not get the pattern to show ,GRRrrrrrr
