I started saving my fabric scraps because other people made me feel guilty for tossing them out. They’re perfectly good pieces of fabric, I’ve been told. Plenty of life left in them.

And that is why I now have 1-1/2 outdoor trash bags filled with scrap pieces of fabric. Know what I’ve done with them? Pretty much nothing. Instead, they are taking up space in my laundry room and life. I think y’all know what that means.

Yes, I’m giving them away! Three lucky winners will receive a Flat-Rate Envelope stuffed with scraps. Most are pre-washed; some are not. I’ll try to stick with all wovens but I make no guarantees about sizes — just know that anything 1/2 yard or smaller ends up in my scrap bag. Amy Butler, Sis Boom, imported European and Japanese fabrics. You name it; there’s probably a scrap there.

And more scraps than you can shake a stick at can be yours. Just comment below and you’re entered. I’ll draw three names from my lucky Junior League ballcap on Tuesday, Sept. 9.

What are you waiting for? Good luck!

  1. I’d be happy to use up some of your scraps! Good for you getting rid of what you aren’t using. I have been doing a lot of that this summer as well.

  2. What a neat giveaway! (Please note that you apparently have two blog readers named “Mika”–pretty neat-o, if you ask me. I’m not the same person as the “Mika” in comment #1–my online handle is usually mikawendy.)

  3. My heart goes pitter-patter just thinking about scraps!Thank you for thinking generously when you decided to give them up!

  4. Ooh!! I have a scrap quilt I’m working on, all from bitty pieces of left over projects. It’s going to be crazy and wild, I’d love to add your scraps to it!

  5. Thanks so much for the e-mail back about patterns and ideas. I’m on the search for a good peasant shirt to try out, and along the way accidentally found a beautiful and simple dress pattern I can’t wait to try. Hooray!

    Little people have such little clothes – I’d love some scraps that would probably end up working to make some lovely embellishments!

  6. Scraps are my favorites…they make the best quilts and I just love scrap quilts. I love other people’s scraps even more…different tastes and different fabrics than the scraps I generate. I would LOVE to win these!

  7. Oh my goodness, that would be just like Christmas morning…..except 3 1/2 months earlier! Thanks so much and may you and yours have a safe and blessed weekend!

  8. How fun! Feel free to send some of your scraps this way–I would love to make a few patchwork balls for my daughters to play with and maybe a new blanket for their baby doll…

  9. I love the scraps! My only problem is that I always seem to buy the bare minimum of fabric,so my scrap collection has only produced one pieced together quilt!
    Love the site!

  10. A girl can never have too many scraps. At least that is what I tell myself so I can justify it to my husband! Plus I love your scraps. I keep itty bitty pieces, compared to mine your scraps, are scraps on steroids!

  11. Oooh, some yummy scraps. I’ve been itching to make some more scrappy log cabins from Melly & Me’s blog. Sounds like a perfect way to get yummy new prints for them πŸ™‚ You are too sweet Mary.

  12. I haven’t quite reached the stage of having too much fabric, but I am working on it! Count me in, please!

  13. What a generous give*away!! Judging by your beautiful creations, I’ll bet your scraps are FABULOUS!! πŸ˜‰

  14. what??? its that easy? πŸ™‚ Fabric is my obsession…and some days my sanity. (or rather, my therapy) the problem is, I rarely have time to *do* anything with it, but I love, love, love IT!!!!

  15. Thanks for the chance to win! Can always use more scraps for little bitty projects, kids’ projects and scrap quilts!

  16. I love your blog, esp the confessions of goofed-up projects! The fabrics you use are so pretty and unusual (I usually only shop at Hancock Fabrics since its right down the street and I used to work there.) I would love to get some of the scraps. If I win some, be sure they will end up being used in a purse or some sort of pet-related project. Thanks!

  17. Ok I just have to say that I need to win. This is not just a want…I really need to win. I am dying to craft but alas I don’t have fabric scraps to craft with my daughter. This would save me. Would you ever sell them?

  18. Are you kidding me?!?! I would be over-the-moon to dig through a collection of your scraps. I just adore Jennifer Paganelli – absolutely adore her. The AB and the imports are all well and good – talent in the fabric world is overwhelming – but Jennifer and her Sis Boom creations are just fabulous. Oh to make something scrappy with your bounty… I’m grinning at the thought πŸ™‚

  19. Oh my goodness! I found your blog last week, and my mouth dropped open at this invitation! Holy cow! I love scraps, and I know I would love yours! Miss L is adorable, and I have had lots of fun reading back through your archives! Thanks for this great chance! πŸ™‚

  20. I love your blog. Your daughter is beautiful and I love the clothing you have been sewing for her. I found your site and have gotten lots of ideas for outfits for my still small neices.

  21. If my wife hasn’t signed up for this yet she should. She’d be all over this. If I win I could be charitable and pass them over to her. πŸ™‚
