And since some of these projects use very little fabric (such as the gift/business
card holders) they would be ideal for using up those smaller scraps of fabric you
may have leftover from other projects. Or if larger sections of fabric are needed for
a project, try sewing a number of smaller scraps together in patchwork fashion.
And any of the projects consisting of simple shapes and construction would
probably make an ideal first project for a beginner just learning how to sew.
And if your organizer (such as a car or wall organizer) will be subject to lots of
stress, consider making it from a heavier fabric like cotton canvas or denim. Just be
sure to use a thicker needle in your sewing machine which will be able to more
easily pierce through the layers of heavy fabric without breaking. But if you have
your heart set on a lighter-weight fabric – perhaps a colorful print you’ve fallen in
love with, you can make this fabric stronger and more durable by backing it with a
layer of fusible interfacing. Just be sure to test the interfacing first by applying it to
a scrap of your fabric before constructing your item.
