Step 2:
Start cutting out a semi-circle and four rays of sunshine out of your fabric scraps, to make a sunset pattern. I did mine by eye, but you could definitely draw and plan your shapes out first.

Glue your shapes in place, leaving an inch of space at the top of the fabric for the thread.

So that’s it, the end of Fashion Revolution Week 2020. I hope you have enjoyed creating with me this week, I know I have most certainly enjoyed it and found it fascinating how much you can do with fabric scraps! Thank you so much for following along, and just because the week has ended it doesn’t mean we can’t always think of fresh, creative ways from preventing our unwanted clothes from going into landfill. Keep creating,
Cathryn
