14 Things to do with Leftover Fabric

Who doesn’t have bunches of fabric squirelled away for who-knows-when-I-may-need-it? We tell you how to get them out of the way in style.

1. Breathe new life into old seat cushions by wrapping them up in bright leftover fabric. Bonus: No stitching required.

2. Add fun and pops of colour to an old sofa. Cut up fabric ribbons and make pretty bows on cushions.

3. Frame a huge swathe of vibrant fabric (or section it off) – it’s art like none other.

4. An especially eye-catching piece of fabric can even be used like wallpaper. Pretty and unusual.

5. Use leftover fabric scraps of the same kind to decoupage an end table. End result? A drool-worthy piece.

6. Forget boring old soft boards. Cover cork boards with pretty fabric to create gorgeous memo boards.

7. Make over an old tray by putting a piece of striking fabric under a sheet of glass.

8. The neighborhood frame-wala can put your fabric scraps to good use and leave you with one-of-a-kind photo frames.

9. Glass cabinet doors are a dime a dozen; wooden ones are oh-so boring. Use fabric to cover glass cabinets and give them a brand new look.

10. Line a bookshelf with fabric backsplash to create an arty pop of colour between your books and displays.

11. Drawers that are dusty and dirty? No more after you line them with attractive fabric.

12. Dress up old porcelain sinks in the bathroom with a no-stitch fabric skirt. Helps hide storage, adds visual interest and looks pretty.

13. Revitalise old bottles with a crafty touch – scraps of fabric can turn them into never-seen-before vases.

14. Extremely small scraps can be turned into a fabric bunting. Pretty and perfect for birthday parties or a special occasion.
