Scrap Fabric Flower Brooch

What will you do on the scrap fabric that you gathered from selvage of sewing projects? I guess most of us will just keep the bigger pieces of scrap and throw away all those tiny one. However I felt that it was such a waste to throw anythings away even though it is just a tiny piece of scrap. Especially when it is vintage fabric or fabric that with pretty print on it. So, normally I will just keeping them up. But by just keep on keeping all those scrap selvage, I will end up with storage problem too. Therefore, I've come out an idea to reduce my stash of scrap fabric, I used some of them to make this scrap fabric flower brooch. The result came out satisfied and it seem to be a nice accessory to attach to clothes and bags.

I always try to use up all those tiny stash of fabrics and yarns, and agree that to throw them away is a waste. Yours is a good idea to make such a tiny item for decoration.

I save all my yarn leftovers as well. I thought I could make little flowers. Similar idea as your fabric usage.
