I recently finished up a couple items using Shabby Chic styled fabrics and had quite a few super small scraps left. I layed them all out, with some extra thread, lace and ribbon, sewed it all down with watersoluable fabric, and then used the "scrap fabric" to make some gift card cases (posted over in the wallet section) and a bunch of these note cards. It was loads of fun, and used up most of those little pieces I just hate to throw away!

Those are pretty fabrics.  It's cool you found a use for the little scraps.   The lace adds a nice touch.

Great idea...did you stiffen up the fabric?

No ... the watersoluable fabric gives enough stiffness to make the sewing easy, and once it is rinsed away the scrap fabric is a little stiffer than when you started, probably from the watersoluable fabric running through it as it is being washed away.

These are lovely, and such a great way to use scraps. I have some vintage fabric scraps that are too tiny to make anything with, but I can't bear to throw them out...this is a fab idea!

these are really gorgeous.  great job.  I've had some of that watersoluable stuff in a drawer for about 2 years, waiting to be 'played with', and you've inspired me.  must get it out now!  Thanks for sharing your lovely work.

 Cheesy
These beautiful cards are a great idea!!! I, too. am a fabriholic, who cant bear to throw away her scraps. This is a great way to use them. You could also add beads, sequins , buttons too! It's fantastic, as fabrics are being recycled, also a small work of art is being created. Also with the price of greetings cards, these are a lot better, are a fraction of the price, and are unique little creations!!
Love the idea of framing them, also they could be made larger ,on artist canvas blocks.
I have definitely bookmarked this, thank you for sharing this!!!  Cheesy
