fabric scrap badges

Rather than throwing away all the scraps and offcuts I create along the way I decided to keep them in case they came in handy (and it gave me a reason to start another storage box...)

Last night I decided to see what i could do with them, so i made some felt badges


I cut circles of felt (which created more offcuts)


Added fabrics and ribbon and then machine embroidered over the top - a mixture of decorative stitches and free machine embroidery.

And here was the result - not a great photo, but plenty of potential in the finished article - badges, brooches, bunting, coasters, the list goes on.


And there are plenty more scraps left to be creative with



...which is more than can be said for the wine.
