Friday Favorites–Fat Quarter Projects

You may have noticed by now, it’s Fat Quarter Week.  I didn’t exactly plan it, it just happened.  What better way to wrap it up than a round-up of great projects from around the ‘net that can be made with a fat quarter or two?

A pincushion may seem an obvious choice, since you can make most of them from a small amount of fabric, but the addition of the Scrap Bag to this Puff Pincushion from Awaiting Ada takes it up a step.

You probably saw my apron yesterday, but there are lots of others out there, including this cute Fat Quarter Apron from Prudent Baby.

And this Reversible Apron from Wendymoon Designs.  She used her own fabrics she had printed by Spoonflower!

With a fat quarter and 20 minutes, you can make this Grocery Bag Holder from Craftiness Is Not Optional.

Tiny shoes always get my attention, so I’d love an excuse to make these Cloth Shoes from Stardust Shoes.

Little gift bags are a great way to use up fabrics you might be having a hard time finding another use for.  Check out these Small Treat Totes from AllPeopleQuilt.

I love the elastic around the inside of this Beach Comber Bag from 2 Little Hooligans to hold all your sunscreen bottles in place.  I also love the thought of getting to use sunscreen again.

The Sometimes Crafter makes these Fabric Scrap Baskets look easy.

These Criss-Cross Coasters from Allsorts are so cute, and the color and pattern mixing opportunities are endless.

  1. The grocery bag holder is my favorite. I can never figure out what to do with all my bags after a trip to the store when I forget my reusable. A cute cloth holder is perfect :)
