Tiny Projects

I picked up a basket full of Pendleton wool remnants at their store here in Portland.  Some of the fabrics are decent yardage, but most of them are just small pieces.  I have been trying to come up with projects to use it all.  So far I have made a pacifier clip, a bunch of bow ties that will soon be listed in my etsy shop, and a headband for Pearl.  I plan to make her a crayon case as well since she is very fond of tearing up tiny cardboard boxes.
I would love suggestions on other projects that take very little fabric.  I bought this stuff to use it and I don't want it to sit in a drawer forever!

  1. Love these fabrics and the bowties and clips. Trying to think small- one idea that came to mind is little wrist cuffs. H's newborn photographer had some in her studio that he wore in a few of his pics- they were just little cuffs with buttons on them- so cute! Would be more of a photo prop than for actual wear. Otherwise maybe iron on or sew on knee/elbow patches?

  4. Kira- it was really great to meet you yesterday and yes we have met in cyber space!

    Some ideas.. let me think.. mittens.. socks.. I have been seeing designs where they add a cut out of a different fabric- like adding elbow pads or maybe a fun applique? like a anchor or a heart :)

    Can't wait to see what you make.
