Leftover beads, ribbon, yarn, and pieces of fabric from bigger sewing and knitting projects lend themselves wonderfully to inventive creations. Even your mending basket will likely turn up a trove of orphaned buttons and old clothes that can be transformed into any number of wearable crafts. But don't limit yourself to recycled fashions. These same items can be used to make bags, cards, frames, and even a few easy-to-sew stuffed toys.
