Fun Way to Use Fabric Scraps
As I said before we love all things sewing and quilting….and because of that, one thing that we ALWAYS have coming out of every nook and cranny of our sewing spaces is SCRAPS. I think they sometimes are taking over the world….and I very well can’t throw them away (they are precious!), so I’ve been trying to think of useful projects to pair down the scrap bucket. And this is a useful one for all of us…either to use or to give away—Fabric Scrap Holiday Cards.
How to Make Scrap Fabric Holiday Cards
And the best part of all is that these Christmas cards are so simple to make! You could make quite a few sets of the Scrap Fabric Holiday Cards in an afternoon…as we have put together all of the work for you.
All you need to do is break out your fabric scrap bin and have some card stock and envelopes and you are ready to go!
Below are the links to the pdfs for the cards. You can print them out and then trim them down to 5.5″ by 8.5″ for each card.
- All you have to do is print off the card templates,
- Free hand some simple shapes–star for the wish card and triangles and a trunk for the Christmas tree.
- Stitch the fabric shapes onto the card.! Don’t worry about being precise, they will turn out great no matter what!
TIP: Use a long stitch setting on your machine. I use about a 3.

Hello Kathryn, the link is updated.
Such a darling idea! Can you please fix the link so it goes to Happy Christmas? I’d love to use that one.
I’ve just discovered your blog, having seen one of your sewing mazes for children on a facebook post. You’ve got some great ideas to share. Are you aware that both links on these cards are for Wish? The Happy Christmas link goes to Wish… I’m hoping you may be able to fix this. The cards are a really cute idea.
Thanks for your inspiration!
