If the clothes left behind after stitching are in such a quantity that might be useable for the owner then you should hand it over to the owner, it is dishonesty to hold it back secretly. Yes, if the owner allows you, whether he said it openly before stitching or after stitching, then you can use them. Likewise, if the leftover cloth is very minor which is generally useless or which may not be demanded commonly by people then there is no wrong in keeping back those parts and using them.
