You will be amazed how colourful, small bits of fabric can come together, up-cycled to create things of beauty. They can also be used to make up skirts, jackets and even accessories such as scarves, collars and jewellery or used to make inserts and patches to mend, giving pops of colour and updating clothing, breathing new life into old favourites .
