Most crafters who create with fabric have a stash of scraps that are too large to throw away but too small to use. Former magazine editor Ebben presents a number of creative solutions to the scrap-stash in this full-color, step-by-step book. While some of the patterns seem like obvious uses for scraps, others, including party bunting and floral tie-backs made from small scraps, are inspired. The overall aesthetic is homespun and retro without being kitschy, and the directions are abundantly clear, with plenty of illustrations to guide crafters toward perfect results.
