I hope you don't have an answer above this in your comments box, I just went back to my page to get my hub title as i could not remember it. Sorry if you do, i'm just learning my way around these hubpages.
Ok -- one of the things i do with scrap fabric is that i make cards. Patchwork cards and others -- this is why i went to get my title as i have just finished a hub on my cards but it is pending publication as it did not meet the hub criteria (i think because it had mainly pics and not much talking) so hopefully it will be published tomorrow. Anyway the title will be
so you can have a look if you like.
The other suggestion i have is to make little flowrets or shapes and also buttonhole highlights to set skirts and shirts, bags and anything you can come up with, off.
