Use It Up Sewing!

I hate to waste anything, especially my fabrics. I have been saving the scraps from my pillows and bags for a long time, especially if they are of a size that might be useful.
I decided to use some of them to make a throw for my family room, mostly to use as a cover for an ottoman that has seen better days. I think it is turning out great! I love the color combination and the sophisticated damask patterns all sewn up in a funky patchwork design!
And I love using up all those lovely bits of fabric that have been sitting in my scrap basket!


  1. I love patchwork! I think it looks great. I have seen some very expensive patchwork pillows online.

  2. Your patchwork is really lovely, thanks for your lovely comments about my blog Sarah x
