How to make Fabric LEFTOVER stickers

Yesterday I cut out a jacket to make for me
to wear to the Christmas outings. And as i had lots
of scraps left over i did not want to waste them
so I am turning them into stickers for cards
There is always scraps left over when cutting out
for sewing projects

What you do is grab some thick double sided tape.
(in this case i could only find 2" )

Turn fabric over and put tape to cover the whole picture
if the tape is too narrow then over lap it slightly
Then turn it over and cut around the image
(this is where the tape will protect it from
fraying and make it much easier to cut out too )

Then you have yourself some wonderful quick and easy sticker
to add to your cards or projects

I use Heat and Bond to do the same thing.I apply to the entire piece of fabric, cut out what I want, then iron the image onto what ever I want to embellish. Your idea is great, less waste.

I just noticed I made a spelling mistake on my comment! LOL
I meant JAC paper would work well, cut to size of image.
