Scrap Yarn Projects
If you’ve got a collection of scrap yarn leftover from other crochet projects and you’re wondering what on earth you can make with it this is the collection for you!
I’ve been hanging out over at Ravelry checking out the amazing projects that people have made with less than a skein of yarn.
I found everything from princess dresses and teeny baby loafers to cute toys, sweet hats and stylish purses!
Seriously there’s something here for everyone on your gift making list whatever the occasion!
Crochet princess dress
How sweet is this little crochet princess dress? Cerah made it for her niece’s birthday based on the Angle Wings Pinafore pattern.
Crochet star washers
These star washers are super quick and easy to make and the perfect project for leftover yarn as it doesn’t matter what colour they are (or whether you make them multi-coloured!)
Nordstrom crochet bag
This bag comes together pretty quickly on your hook but take note that you then need to sew in the pretty lining and attach a handle which takes a while.
This fabulous crown would be perfect for a Halloween costume.
Aww how sweet are these little loafers? I love the teeny buttons!
Here’s a sweet little bird that you can hook in an evening using your scrap yarn.
The addition of the sweet flower to this lovely cloche hat makes it so fabulous that any little girl would love to wear it!
Tiny baby shoes
Oh my goodness more cute baby shoes, I love that these aren’t made using traditional “baby” colours!
Half lotus bunting
This bunting is perfect for decorating a nursery or even a home office.
I guess it’s pretty obvious that a small amount of scrap yarn makes people thing baby booties but these are especially adorable with the little flowers and ladybugs!
Speaking of ladybugs, these would be a cute addition to that cloche hat I shared just a minute ago.
Escargot chocolate purse
Now here’s a gift for the grownups on your list. A stylish purse with a snail inspired pattern.
Scrap project crochet purse
Or how about this fabulously stylish option with a clasp that’s perfect as a makeup bag or clutch.
These pretty fall leaves would be perfect as a wreath or appliquéd onto a scarf or afghan.
How cute is this little kitty? I think she’d make a perfect paperweight, or if you happen to have a lot of scrap yarn you could size her up to be a doorstop!
Fun crochet pouch
Storage pouches make fabulous gifts because a person can never have enough storage right! And this scrap yarn crochet project is perfect for using up leftover yarn in a stripy fashion!
Here’s the perfect gift for that person on your list who collects all things hippopotamus, or for any animal-loving child of course!
Here’s another storage idea to use up that leftover yarn, this time it’s a small hanging basket that can be hung on the back of the door. It would make handy bathroom storage for washcloths I think.
Reusable crochet makeup pads
These reusable makeup pads are super easy to work up and would be a thoughtful gift for a beauty-loving friend.
