What to do with Leftover Yarn : Stash Busting Challenge

Scarp yarn project ideas

Janne, from Joy of Motion Crochet and I decided to challenge all our designer friends and you to help us all finally know what to do with leftover yarn!

With these scrap yarn project, we’ll help you clear out those small bits and pieces of scrap yarn we all have lying around.

You know, that jar of tiny balls of leftover yarn from past projects. And the less than half skeins of yarn you never know what to do with.

With The Stash Busting Challenge you’ll transform these in fun, cute, and useful scrap yarn projects to gift or for your own use.

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