For those of you who've used fabric in your January Jumpstart projects, we've complied a roundup of simple ways to use your leftover scraps. These are just a few ideas we found on the web...add your own suggestions (and links) in the comments below.
Swatch Portraits from the Purl Bee are super easy. All it takes to make them is a remnant and an embroidery hoop. Click here for the step-by-step instructions.
How About Orange is full of easy, good-looking projects. (Jessica is so creative!) We love this Vintage Fabric Wall Art made from fabric scraps and paper. Click here for the how-to.
One idea from Martha Stewart: make lavender sachets with leftover squares. It's a simple project, and you can use the sachets to keep linens smelling fresh. They also make a great gift. Click here for how-to instructions.
If you have a lot of assorted leftovers, you can make napkins out of colored fabrics. We love this project from the Purl Bee because it ties together a hodge podge of colors with the same binding trim. If you have less fabric, use the same concept to make coasters instead of napkins.

Lisa Congdon made this patchwork pillow for ReadyMade. It's a little more complicated than the other projects listed above, but the results are really stunning. Click here for the step-by-step.
