Making successful, wearable garments from your pile of scraps might feel impossible. How do you create something that looks intentional and stylish, that’s representative of your personal style? Where do you even start? 

For years I’ve been experimenting with making different types of garments from different types of fabric scraps. I’ve picked up lots of pointers along the way, and learned heaps by studying the work of other makers who also work with scraps. I’ve collated and distilled all these lessons into this guide to empower and inspire you to make awesome clothes from scraps, starting TODAY!

This downloadable guide will:

  • introduce you to the two main approaches for sewing clothes from fabric scraps
  • help you to dip your toe in gently, in a way that suits your aesthetic
  • offer pointers for creating refined and wearable garments
  • lay out the options for preventing uncomfortable seams
  • suggest when to adhere to, and when to ignore, the grainlines
  • explain how to find the grainline when the scraps are no longer attached to the selvedge
  • share lots of sewing patterns suitable for making from fabric scraps
  • teach you how to prep your scraps and combine them to make ‘fabric’

You will receive a 12-page downloadable PDF guide illustrated with colour photos, that you can come back to time and time again.
