Stash Busting Challenge

leftover yarn projects

What do you do with your leftover yarn? You know those small balls of yarn and partial skeins you have leftover from previous projects?

Don’t throw it out or discard it! Keep them all in a small jar or container and when it’s full, it’s time for some stash busting projects!

That’s what we are here for! It’s time to give you some ideas of small, quick and cute projects you can make using this yarn. These leftover yarn projects are also great for quick gifts, it’s a win-win in my book!

I challenged my designer friends with helping us create a list of projects perfect for all that leftover yarn to share over the coming weeks!

Using this list, you’ll easily clear out your own scrap yarn pile.

No time right now? Pin these scrap yarn project ideas for later!
