When I am making a project with charm packs, I often have just a “sliver” of fabric left over. I’ve been saving those “slivers” and here’s what we’ve been doing with them….
…making ponytail holders! This pony tail holder made from the leftovers from my March Schnibble. It’s Oz fabric line. The pieces are about 1/4″ wide. We just tied the “slivers” around a ponytail holder.
There’s another “sliver” project….It’s a little notebook journal.
This one is done with “slivers” from the Charisma fabirc line. You will need a notebook with an oversized “chunky” sprial.
Measure the notebook cover. Cut a scrap of fabric to that size. Cut a piece of clear contact paper about an inch larger on each side. Take the paper off the contact paper and lay in sticky side up on a table. Take the fabric and place it UPSIDE down on the contact paper placing it all the way to the edge of the side that will butt the coil binding. Put a small amount of glue on the notebook cover. Position the fabric/contact paper in place. Bring the edges of the contact paper around the cover and stick them in place. You may want to trim the corners on the contact paper to have it be less bulky. If you are using a plastic covered notebook, you might need to use clear packaging tape to hold the contact paper in place. Now take the fabric “slivers” and tie one to each individual coil. Trim if necessary.
These little journals would make cute gifts for kids to make for friends, sisters or for moms as Mother’s Day gifts. You could easily bundle the slivers, a notebook and the instructions as a cute “craft kit” project to give a special girl in your life.
Here’s to using every litttle “sliver” of fabric!
