40 Sewing Projects Made with 1/4 Yard or Less

I mentioned a couple days ago that summer has really thrown us for a loop. Our routine was tossed out the window but we also had a few strange things happen to us, which I’ll tell you more about another day. (And that’s because it involves someone stealing from us….and it will take too long to share here. But it’s kind of interesting. And has a happy ending!) Anyway, I also mentioned I have been ITCHING to get back into my craft room… SEW! Are any of you feeling the same way, since summer is on its way out? In case you are, I’ve gathered up some really fun sewing projects, that only take 1/4 yard or less! Yep, that’s it!!!

If you don’t have fabric laying around, head on over to the fabric store and pick up a fat quarter. Or have a 1/4 yard cut. Either way, it will only set you back a few dollars. OR, just jump into that stash of scraps you have, and start cutting! There is always something really satisfying about making something…..but even better when it doesn’t cost much to make!

    These are so so so smart! I can’t believe I never thought to make any of these with all of those swatches I have from spoonflower and extra yardage aplenty. I am definitely going to make some oven mitts and coasters now. Since I design my own fabric it will go perfectly with my house! Thanks for this list!
