Scrap Busting Bows

So, as I’ve said before, I hoard my fabric scraps. It’s true. I can not seem to throw them away. I feel like I will always find a way to use them, and I usually do. Since I’ve been hanging out in bed so much lately I decided to organize all my fabric/felt scraps by color into zip-loc bags. Yes, these are the types of projects you come up with while on bed rest to keep busy :). While I was going through them I realized how many cute fabrics & combinations I had in teeny tiny scraps. Then I got to thinking that I should make some cluster bows. Brilliant! These bows are so much fun to make and use up all those itty bitty scraps you may be saving. Or not. Now I have a bag full of bows that I just need to assemble into headbands/clips. So. Much. Fun. Maybe I love it so much because otherwise I’d be reading yet another book or watching another pointless show on Netflix. I’m officially on the downhill of bedrest and it feels oh so good! I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. K that might be a little too dramatic but I can’t tell you how excited I am to mop my floor and go grocery shopping. Two things I loathed 6 months ago.

Here are some pictures of the clips/headbands I’ve made, maybe it’ll give you some inspiration. How fun would it be for a craft night for everyone to bring a bunch of individual little flowers they’ve made and then mix and match with everyone else’s to make some super cute headbands? collage
