Do you love to sew, or are you new to this type of DIY project? Don’t miss the chance to try Fat Quarter projects! So…what exactly is a “Fat Quarter”? This is a quarter of a yard of fabric, considered a small amount of fabric by most sewers you would meet today. It’s not enough to do a lot of projects – well, that is until you take a look at the collection of great DIYs we’ve found you!
That’s because most DIYers and sewers have discovered that even a little piece of fabric can become something terrific, if you try. You could make potholders, a container for your lipgloss, a stylish traveling pouch for your jewelry to bring on your next vacation or even a charming bread basket that guests will admire. Suddenly, these teeny pieces of fabric, can become many fabulous things!
We know you can tackle these DIY projects. Most are beginner friendly. Some will require more advanced sewing skills, try asking a fellow DIYer or someone you know at your local crafts or sewing store for a little advice before you get started, and you’ll feel more confident.
A lot of these are ideal for gift giving. One of the charms of the Fat Quarter is you can create such amazingly serendipitous color and pattern combinations. Now, this is actually something that your great grandma knew – which is why she tucked away those Fat Quarters in her sewing basket, to add the finishing touches on a quilt or other special project
So, let’s get started! Choose a handful of Fat Quarters that catch your eye. Happy DIY-ing!
