Here’s what other members said on Facebook:


Handbags and bows for shoes to match.

I've done a few for everyday wear but have made a lot for my belly dance costumes. Forearm 1/2 sleeves, veils (multiple shapes), overskirts in multiple styles. More that I can't recall off the top of my head.


I've made handbags and hats.

When I made my wedding dress, I made a matching purse. That's the only time I've done that.


Hair bows with the scraps left over.

Headbands, especially for my daughter.


I made a reversible hat. Just a little too cute. Probably won't wear it. My mother would always make me something and then something for my doll so that we could match!


I made matching underpants for a dress. It was a skating dress style, and I wanted everything to match when I danced, if my skirt flew up!

I make hair bows all the time and sometimes matching purses, but lately I've been covering dollar store headbands in leftover fabrics.


Hats, purses, embellishments for purchased clothing, crocheted jewelry, etc.

Yes, purses. Several of them.


I made a camera case! LOL. I needed a little protective sleeve for my camera so I used a scrap of the stretchy fabric from the dress I made for the wedding and stitched up a matching pouch.


Scarves and hair doodads.

I sewed a small purse for my evening dress

Hats - lots of hats. I've also made a few purses.

This is just AWESOME and everything is so neat. I LOVE to see others creativity. I make my own hats using hat blocks and also I have four 1884 old vintage working straw braid machines that I also use and make straw church lady hats. I upgrade my shoes with fabric scraps and add bling to the embellishments. I also make my own rose petals for my large cabbage roses. Clutches and purses are a must and I make them to coordinate with my church attire. I also make my own hat pins and flower stamens using faux pearl beads. FYI: There's a book that will show you how to make your own shoes, I've tried that too.
