If you or children have a big stash of fabric scraps or half-used balls of yarn taking up needed closet space in your house, you might be like me and find yourself sorting through the scraps and looking for any kind of project that will help use them all up. This week's Make It is once again getting us all ready to head back to school – but this time with projects that will hopefully tackle that fiber-friendly stash of scraps in no time.
