Here is Manouche’s selection for smart sewing projets. No waste allowed!

A blanket : DIY for an easy project

A tutorial without pattern and no waste of fabric. Easy, nice, usefull.

Sewing a blanket for your own self or as a present, what a cool and nice project! Who hasn’t dreamed of a cosy blanket to wrap into?
Manouche fabrics are perfect for this type of project. Let’s go!

Cotton nazca – baby size 120x140cm
Viscose prairie – adult size 140×160

In terms of supplies you will need a fabric for each side. It can be the same or, as in the example, Nazca cotton paired with a false fur fabric.
You will also need a thicker fleece for the middle layer, to ‘stuff’ the blanket.
I did a quick tutorial video to show the different steps to follow!

DIY & tutorials : an upcyling selection!

Here is a selection of ideas I found here and there to easily use all of your fabric scraps. Beginner friendly as always on Manouche, these projects really nice and totally suitables as handmade presents.

Double sided makeup wipes by Manouche

Like a glove

The Manouche wipes can be flipped so you can use both side of it to wash your face.
This little project will use small amount of fabric and will also contribute to a zero waste bathroom!


In terms of supplies, there is not much. Choose a soft quality of sponge fabric if you don’t have it already. I like organic bamboo for my face. It is soft and nice especially for makeup removal.

Good to know : Manouche fabrics are available starting very low quantity, 10cm only !
