Do you have precious smaller pieces of fabric you can't bear to part with? Do you have a mountain of scraps that you don't know what to do with? Scrapbusters is here to help you give them a new life!

In this class, multiple smaller scrappy projects can be made or you can focus on one larger project made with pieced fabric. This class is designed specifically to help you figure out how to design your own fabric to create the project(s) of your choice.

The possibilities of projects for this class are truly endless! Some small project ideas are tea cozies, pouches or simple bags, cushion covers, oven mitts or pot holders, infinity scarves, sewing machine covers...  Some larger project ideas are slippers, quilted jackets, table runners, quilt blocks, scrappy loungerwear/pyjama pants... For garment projects, you will need to provide your own pattern e.g. Carolyn Pajamas or Fran Pyjamas by Closet Core, Unisex Pajama Pants by Wardrobe By Me, Denyse pants by Jalie, Eastwood Pyjamas by Thread Theory. Keep in mind you may not complete a larger project in four weeks - or homework may be required.
