Scrap-palooza

Whenever I have something I HAVE to do, I suddenly get the urge to do something else that I've been putting off. Does this happen to you?

So, instead of writing block instructions, I pulled out the scraps.
Tons of them. And bagged them up.

Each bag contains one pound of scraps (according to my kitchen scale), which totals about three yards of fabric.
Some pieces are small but some are pretty big and there are definitely a couple of fat quarters in there.
Bag of Scraps
Fabrics differ. Some I've had for years, some are current, some are fabrics that are in my store right now.
They are not pre-washed and will be very wrinkled since they've been stuffed in bags.

If you're interested in growing your scrap collection email me: twiddletails{at}gmail{dot}com.
I only request that you pay for shipping them in a USPS Priority Mail envelope - $5 US, $13 everywhere else.
First come, first served.

SCRAPS ARE GONE!

Pin It!

  2. sent you an email... and yes, I do lots of unecessary tasks prior to the must do's. But for some reason, I work very well when the final deadline occurs.

  3. What a great way to reduce the stash! Good luck! May have to do the same!

    Merry Christmas!

  4. Oh, so very tempting (why is it that someone else's scraps look so much more enticing than one's own?!), but I'm sitting on my hands and going to vow to get rid of some of my *own* scraps first! Thanks for the gentle push.

  9. I almost always have homework hanging over my shoulder. but I can't do that until things are clean. and then I really need to tidy in my sewing space, and maybe I should just sew a little to get the creative juices flowing so I can do homework. then I am tired so maybe I should do my homework tomorrow.

    I can relate!
