In the last few days I have added two new pages onto this blog: Hints & Tips and Scrappy Projects. Many of the items included on those pages were first published by me on my old blog. However, I have deleted that blog and hope that everything on there has transferred over here. There was a Hints and Tips page on the old blog, but the Scrappy Projects page is new.

It occurred to me that scrappy projects are popular because, as crafters, we are bound to accumulate scraps of one sort or another. I enjoy creating things using scraps and noticed that many of the things I have shown on my craft blog, Facebook or other places, are “scrappy”. It seemed to make sense to gather together lots of the projects in one place as a “go to” page for ideas and inspiration.

Not all of the ideas are sewing or knitting oriented, as you will see, some of them use card or paper scraps.

Sometimes I even colour coordinate the scraps!

Or they could even be themed:
