This is a great wall art project using fabric scraps and embroidery hoops, from The Purl Bee. While this project just uses fabric swatches, you could certainly do some embroidery on your scraps to add even more visual interest.
Crafty things to make out of embroidery hoops make for easy DIY decorating and kids crafts. Here are pictured tutorials on how to make embroidery hoop art, embroidery hoop wreaths and decor, embroidery hoop photo displays, a hamper and photo booth props.
Pretty DIY lace project - A modern take on the lace curtain - try a random net base with crocheted, appliqués and cutout pieces. Great use for recycling those old and new ends or bits of lace. Reminds me of a Vctorian crazy quilt idea.
