The Ultimate Scraps Too Small

My very smallest scraps, the ones I clip off edges as I sew, go into a big shell that my grandma bought on a long ago vacation. It sits on the shelf right by my sewing machine.

I save them to stitch onto cards I make - greeting type cards.

The very smallest scraps go onto my business cards. I purchased some of the business cards you can print on your computer. I position all the information on the right side of the card. That leaves room to decorate the left side with colorful fabric scraps. I just stitch them in place with my sewing machine.

It's thrifty - and people notice your cards. Here's a sample....


  1. What a fab idea, I am just off to rummage at the bottom of my bin now......

  2. I still have mine you gave me when you visited my log house years ago, funny how lives criss-cross!

  3. What a great idea for business cards! Thanks!

  4. I love this idea! I always have little piles of tiny scraps that I can't bear to throw away! In fact I just spent the afternoon pieceing tiny squares into a border beacuse I loved the fabric so much (Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley). I will definitely have a go at this!
