My way to make fabric stickers

Fabric stickers
These days I enjoy making fabric stickers. It's very easy and useful for wrapping.
I read the way from some people's craft blog.

At first, I got double faces adhesive tape for making fabric stickers. I got 2cm width one.

Making sticker 1
I chose my favorite fabrics and cut them into strips. They are a little wider than the tape.
And I put my stamps on linen fabric.

Making sticker 2
I put the double faces adhesive on each back.

Then I trimmed them as the width of the tape and cut them in pieces.

I used it to wrap a gift.

It's easy and a good way to use small scraps.
And I made patchwork straps with other small pieces too.(They are for my friend, Jacqueline).
Straps all

It's similar to the way of making lanyards.

But this time, I made them in better way(I think...).
I cut a piece of thick paper in the width what I want to make the strap.
And I used it when I fold the patchwork strips with iron.

It made the process easier.

And for the straps, I folded cotton tapes also because to make them sturdy.

I enjoyed making them. Thank you very much Jacqueline! And thank you very much for you all!!!!

What a wonderful idea! I save every bit of fabric and I have tons of pieces I originally thought I would never be able to use! Now I know exactly what to do with those scraps. I hate wasting, and it kills me to throw scraps out.
