Back in February I purchased 18 fat quarters in 6 colors to make my daughter a rainbow patchwork dress for her first birthday. The dress turned out fantastic, but I was left with alot of scrap fabric…
So we made a rainbow decoration for the wall and we made a fabric pull baby toy and if you were paying close attention during our big patio make over reveal, you might have even noticed that we made a rainbow wreath for our front door.
Still, there are scraps left over.
It was an easy project. Using pinking shears I cut 2 strips from each pattern of fabric scraps. The strips were about 1 inch wide and 10 inches long, though I didn’t measure them, I just eye-balled it. I separated the strips by color then tied the same color strips together in knots to make 6 ribbon-like fabric lengths. Lastly, I tied each of the fabric lengths onto 6 sticks to use as handles.
Despite the fact that I don’t have better pictures, these have actually proven to be very entertaining for the kids. We’ve taken to keeping the ribbon dancers in the bucket that houses our animal masks for outdoor pretend play.by
