serger scraps hair clip

Remember those beautiful serger scraps I posted last week?


The hoarder in me couldn't bear to throw them out right away, so they sat in a pile on my kitchen table for several days.  Late one night while I was baking cake layers, I wound them up as you would make a yarn pom pom (just not quite as dense), tied it off at the center, trimmed up the resulting puff, and hot glued it to a hair clip.  So easy, and it was a perfect match to the rainbow dress (since that's where the scraps came from, of course).

Waste not! What a great idea!

Adorable!

When you use your serger do you sew the item first, and then serge it? Or do you use your serger to sew and trim at the same time?

Smart! I'm a hoarder, too; why throw away something you can still use? Great idea.

I carelessly let all my trimmings fall to the floor until a giant pile of fabric, cat hair and floor pepper are big enough to hand scoop into the garbage can, but I can see myself using the rotary cutter to make some of these. Too cute!

Nothing to waste! I love it. I enjoy putting project leftovers to good use. Great idea!

Malanie said...

Fantastic idea. Where do you get your clips?

I have always wanted to do something with serger scraps besides let my kids carry them around. This is motivation to make the scraps a little thicker since I always shave a millimeter off.

What a fabulous work you done! Really, I wonder to watch it. My sister always searching unique hair pins for her friend 's birthday, it will be helpful for her.
