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!
