How to Make Your Scraps into a Jelly Roll

Finished patchwork padded sat nav bag.

I’m sure you’re just like me and don’t like throwing away scraps of fabric! I set about going through my bag of scraps to make my own jelly roll which I then used to create this patchwork sat nav bag you can see above.

Craft fabric scraps

I started by laying out strips of fabric on my ironing board with the thinnest pieces on the top. I then ironed them flat.

Placing then on a curtting board I trimmed the pieces to create strips that were 2inches wide by 19inches long.

I selected the ones I need for my patchwork bag project and then rolled the rest up for a future project.

It’s really amazing what you can create from quite small pieces of scrap fabric. I’m really pleased with my new sat nav bag!
