Reuse Project and Tutorial

Ever have a heap of scraps from your serger that you just don’t know what to do with or end up throwing away? Think of all that waste! I have a simple solution to that – reuse them!

The scraps are perfect for using as a filler in projects like stuffed plushies and pillows or pin cushions. Tonight I’ll show you a simple project to use the scraps in by making a little felt owl plushie.

Materials: 

felt

buttons

needle

thread

scissors

serger scraps

Procedure:

-cut out an owl shape {or any other shape of animal you’d like!} from two pieces of felt

-cut out accents/features for owl

-sew on accents/features with a zig zag or decorative stitch to one piece of the felt

-hand sew the buttons for the eyes

-place both pieces of felt, wrong side , together and zig zag stitch around leaving a small opening at the bottom to stuff it

-take the scraps and stuff the owl

-close up the bottom

-move the filler around so the stuffing is even through out

-take a lint roller and get all of the little fuzzies off

Now you have a cute little plushie and you’re being eco friendly!
