Throwing away your craft supplies is hard — even when it comes to tiny scraps or projects riddled with mistakes. The good news: You don't actually have to throw away your rejected crafts!
To help you get more use out of your extra bits of creativity, we're sharing a quick tip for every craft. Which is your favorite?
1Seam Your Knits
While you might not want to use contrasting yarn like we show here, you can use similar yarns to close up small seams in your knitting projects.
2Create a Custom Quilt Binding
Save long, skinny strips for a scrappy quilt binding! Bonus points for using colors and prints that match your quilt top, but you can also go with a mismatched look!
3Upgrade Your T-Shirts
Turn "just OK" T-shirts into tops you'll want to wear again and again with less than a yard of fashion fabric.
4Give Amigurumi Eyes
Little bits of yarn can turn amigurumi projects from lifeless forms to cuddly characters! Just a few inches go a long way when adding facial features
5Use Up All Your Eggs
Did a recipe call for just egg yolks? Don't get rid of the whites! Here's how you can whip 'em up.
6Make Versatile Filler Flowers
Sugar flower arrangements look SO much better with filler flowers in the mix! Make a few stems with leftovers and pull them out when you need them.
7Cut Out Gift Tags
Find the prettiest portions of your practice paintings, cut the out and turn them into gift tags or labels. Easy!
