November Scrapapalooza

I thought I’d take a break from my holiday sewing to pack up the October Scrapapalooza winnings (whoops! A little behind on those!) and thought I’d get the ball rolling on the November giveaway in the spirit of giving thanks to you, my favorite blog readers.
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, Melissa Averinos, imported European and Japanese fabrics. You name it; there’s probably a scrap there.

All you have to do is comment below and you’re entered. I’ll choose three names using the Random Number Generator on Thursday (Thanksgiving Day here in the U.S. of A.). The winners have 48 hours to claim their prizes or they forfeit and I draw another winner.

What are you waiting for? Good luck!

Scrapapalooza Results

I had no idea there were so many scrap addicts out there! One hundred comments on my little giveaway post, which is a record for my blog. Wow! Thank you all “sew” much for reading and commenting (and coming out of lurkdom). I am just overwhelmed, humbled, grateful. And I’m so happy to be able to spread a little love with my giveaway.

I printed out 100 numbers to correspond with each comment (I’d have printed out the comments except I’m almost out of printer ink!), cut them up and placed them in my lucky Junior League ballcap. Now, for the big drawing …

Congratulations, Rachael, Kaedra and Nichole!

And a big thanks to everyone who entered. I wish I could send all of you a big envelope of scraps! And I will — sort of. I’m just so delighted to be able to find homes for my ever-growing pile o’ scraps that I’ve decided to make Scrapapalooza a monthly giveaway! Yes, every month, I’ll do another Scrapapalooza post and you can comment to win an envelope full o’ scrappy goodness. Because I have scraps and apparently lots of people can do cool things with them. So, be sure to subscribe to my blog’s feed through Bloglines, Feedburner, Google Reader or whatever aggregator you have so you don’t miss out on future giveaways.

Scrapapalooza

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!
