Zero Waste

November 13, 2009

I always try to place the patterns differently than the pattern instructions, in order to use less fabric and maybe squeeze in another top or skirt or even a belt in there.
Remember my angels blouse with all the little cut out angles reapplied to the fabric?

But check out this wonderful design for a jacket with ZERO waste: http://issuu.com/foyacollective/docs/precarious_cut_workbook

And Oh!: http://issuu.com/foyacollective/docs/wolf_sheep_workbook

What do you do with all the scraps? I have a drawer full with scrap and I don’t quilt…at least not yet.

    Sew Mama Sew blog ran tons of great project ideas for scraps during Ocotober. Many other sites had great ideas too. I don’t quilt either but I made a list of my favorite, most likely to use ideas: http://julstech.blogspot.com/2009/10/what-to-do-with-scrap-fabric.html

    Problem is just getting around to it! Maybe once the scrap pile reaches critical mass–ha, ha.
