The Craft Leftovers project was my answer to the question, “What does one do with all the leftover bits after a project is finished?” I found that every time I made something, I was left with a half of a skein of this, a half of a yard of that. Although I am driven to create, I am not driven to create more waste. I set out to write patterns specifically for those leftovers and to encourage the crafting community to use up their unwanted bits.

Please join my mission not just to de-stash, but also to find fabulous uses for materials others have found to be without purpose.

Project techniques include: sewing, knitting, crochet, and sometimes other things.

Patterns are posted weekly on Friday.
