Fabric Tips

Scrap material for sewing

Look around for fabrics at car boot sales, charity shops and sale bins if, like me, you are on a tight budget. I have also found fabric seconds on eBay and mixed them with goods brought on Create and Craft. You can then use the stuff to make great gifts for family and friends!

Sewign Fabric Tips

Check out discount stores for cheap fabric. I bought a lovely large pink and white striped tablecloth and made lots of tote shopping bags with it. It cost me a few pounds and I sold them at craft fairs for £4 each. I do this with pretty tea towels too.

Stuffed Toys

Use a new pillow to stuff toys etc..it works out much cheaper!
