Fabric samples from an upholstery project easily can be repurposed to various household goods and helpful do-it-yourself projects. Fabric samples are available in an array of shades, various types of material and typically are unused except for the short timespan when somebody has looked them over and gauged the shade against an additional furniture piece or against the color of a wall they’re attempting to complement. Use these types of samples and be creative with making fun items and gifts for school, work and home.
Utilize the fabric samples for quilts or quilted items like a quilted table runner. You may trim small squares and make quilted napkins. Given the quality of upholstery materials, the new items are going to be of high quality and very stylish. All that’s needed are a sewing machine, sewing materials, some quilt batting, as well as fabric for the back of every quilt.
Pages in a Scrapbook
Thinner upholstery material pieces may be utilized in scrapbooking projects. It’s possible to use stencils in order to draw shapes of pictures you want then trim them with quality, sharp fabric scissors. Glue the pictures to the paper for a sophisticated, textured addition to the scrapbooking projects.
Coin Purse and Check Book Cover
Utilize upholstery material to make a check book cover and complimentary coin purse. You’ll require some type of closure for both (a mini zipper and a zipper, clasps or buttons) which ensure the safe keeping of all loose change or money or, of course, the checks. The check is going to find a very stylish new home within the upholstery check book cover and paying your bills may just be a little more fun.
Similar to homeowners oftentimes framing wallpaper as do-it-yourself art work, fabric samples also can be framed. Also, you may use a broad array of fabric samples together, within a do-it-yourself collage then bind them to a board piece. Both suggestions offer abstract, unique art work for the home at an affordable cost. (Only expenses include the suggested framing or expense of a mounting board if you choose a collage).
