A few days ago, I came across a project that caught my eye. The maker had created a lovely fabric with little scraps, and then fashioned a case for eye glasses with it. That inspired me to dig out all of my little odd sized scraps, and try to make a fabric.
I began to cut rectangular pieces, and serge them together at the narrow end, making several long strips. I then serged the strips together at the long sides to create a large piece of fabric. Because I’m not a quilter, I purposely cut the fabric pieces in various sizes so I didn’t have to worry about matching seams. And because I knew I would be making a garment, I wanted finished seams, so that’s why I used the serger. An overcast stitch on the sewing machine would work just as well. I used a very simple Butterick See & Sew pattern, B5204.
