Make stocking filler gifts from fabric scraps ~ Threading My Way

Today's challenge - Challenge #9
Make a small stocking filler gift from your fabric scraps. Jill sets the challenge...

I love making things with fabric scraps. The possibilities are endless. Small items lend themselves to using up fabric scraps simply due to the amount of material needed. Alternatively, piece together very small pieces to make enough fabric for your project.

Hair Ties make great stocking stuffers. Tutorial at Threading My Way

Hair ties are easy to make and use up the tiniest of scraps. I made these ones with fabric covered buttons, a few tiny scraps and elastic hair ties. A girl can never have too many hair doodads.

Make a fabric flower from scraps of material. Good for a stocking stuffer.

Although made as a brooch, Vicky's fabric flower could just as easily be turned into a hair accessory. Depends on the age of the person the gift is intended for. You'll bust through a lot of scraps with this one. Vicky's tutorial shows how to make one.

Patchwork Pot Holder Tutorial

Patchwork is perfect for using up small scraps. Anne, from Domesblissity, shows how she made a Christmas Bauble Pot Holder.

Little Purse with a lace zipper - perfect for a Christmas stocking

Anna, from Tea and a Sewing Machine, shares a tutorial to make a little purse with a lace zipper. You'll only need two fat 8ths of fabric for this one.

Mobile Phone Case Tutorial

Everyone has a mobile phone now-a-days. Change the fabric to suit the recipient and you have a gift that would suit almost anyone. Mobile Phone Case Tutorial by Jill, from Creating My Way to Success.

Mug rugs are a practical and pretty present. Sheryl, from Sher's Creative Space, shows how to make one specifically for the festive season.

For the sewist in your life, how about a patchwork pincushion. Only tiny scraps of fabric in this one by Audrey, from Audrey B.
