Scraps'n'bits mobile!

What to do with all those teeny tiny offcuts of lovely fabrics that you can't bring yourself to throw away - make a mobile!

Take an embroidery hoop (I had a broken one waiting to be repurposed!), wind thin strips of fabric around to cover, glue the ends into place.

Thread your lovely bits of fabric onto thread and sew each bit into place on the bottom of the mobile..

... and VOILA!

A pretty mobile made of scraps, lovely pretty bits of fabrics to remind you of all the projects you finished last year! Now find somewhere to hang it to be admired!

  1. Finding a new use for embroidery hoops is fun isn't it? Our Christmas wreath is a big and broken old hoop that has three white feather boa's draped around it. I love it...only it does tend to get a few bugs caught up in it as it sits under the outside light that they all flock to!
