#4: My 5 Favourite Scrap Projects

It’s clear that making the most of the fabric we buy is fundamental to keeping our craft as sustainable as possible. In this solo episode I’m making a case for keeping and using your fabric scraps and leftovers from previous sewing projects, and I’m going to run through my 5 favourite uses for scraps and leftovers.  Support the podcast over on Patreon! The Closet Core Pattern free pouf pattern, found HERE, is an excellent way to use up scraps for making the outside and can be stuffed with scraps that are too tiny to be used for anything else.   @crystaltips fabulous pieced-together sun hat can be seen HERE  Reversible Bucket Hat pattern by Oliver + S HERE Sorrento Bucket Hat pattern by Elbe Textiles HERE Serpentine Hat pattern by Elbe Textiles HERE Free Sandcastle Bucket Hat pattern by Waves and Wild HERE Free Hat pattern by Liz Haywood HERE Free SoZo Undies pattern by me HERE Wonder Undies pattern by Waves and Wild HERE Free Speedy Pants pattern by Waves and Wild HERE (used to make the undies pictured below) Superhero Boxers pattern by Waves and Wild HERE Comox Trunks pattern by Thread Theory HERE Sew Your Own Undies kits by Craft and Thrift HERE  Harem Pants pattern by Wiksten.
