Making fabric jewelry is such a playful, fashion-forward way to use up all those little fabric scraps left over from a project that you might have normally thrown away or never used. Did you know that the average US citizen throws away 70 pounds of textiles each year? Ack!  Lately I’ve been thinking about my creative goals, and wondering how I can create less textile waste by using my project scraps in clever little ways. I scoured the inter-webs for some statement making fabric jewelry DIYs and inspo, some projects taking less than a swatch. Take a look!
