    I work at an online fabric store and spend all day cutting fun fabrics. Needless to say, we have lots of scraps and it’s nice to see so many great new projects to use them.

    When I was 10 (I am 30 now), my neighbor was my 4-H leader. Her daughter was older, but in 4-H too. We had different sessions and days though. My leader and daughter made a vest that had fabric scraps, buttons, and other materials on the front. She sewed clear plastic over it. It was so awesome. I wish I had a picture!

    You can also make belts for kids. Really you just need a strip 3 inches wide and roughly 30 inches long (or more depending on your kids waist), heavy interfacing (1 inch wide), and 2 D-rings. The interfacing needs to be 3 inches shorter than your fabric strip. Position your interfacing so there is 1 inch of fabric on one side and 2 inches on the other side. Press everything and sew. Take the side that is 1 inch of fabric, fold over twice, press and sew. Slip the 2 D-rings on the other side, fold over twice again, and sew down.

    You can make a strip with multiple fabrics if you don’t have one strip long enough. My daughter loves these belts and loves that she gets to pick out the fabrics I use for them. I love that they cost less than a belt from the store (because seriously they are ridiculous).
