Scrap Project Giveaway!


Scrap Projects
Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled

I recently bought 6 half yards of beautiful fabric from the Meadowsweet Collection, Sandi Henderson, Michael Miller Fabrics from Fresh Squeezed on Etsy. Right away I began to calculate how many projects I could make and what combination would render the most! I cut out two medium size bags and still had enough to make a small buttercup bag, Tic Tac Toe Pincushion and a few appliqué birdies with Heat N Bond lite on the back (Just peel, iron and sew onto any project!) I am still working on the medium size bags but all of my extra scrap projects are part of my Sew Spoiled Giveaway this week!!
This giveaway will run through midnight on January 28, 2010 with the winners being announced on January 29, 2010. The winner will be chosen using Random.org. We will send it priority mail by February 1, 2010! All friends are welcome!
What do you have to do to enter to win??
Just post a comment about what scrap happy projects you like to use with your favorite fabric scraps. You can link in your comment the perfect project if it is available online.
By the Way, the French Cuff Tote epattern is still available at Craft for Hope and all proceeds are going directly to Doctors Without Borders in Haiti.
Best Wishes!

I like to make anything with the strip quilt or sting quilt method. This totally my favorite. Thanks LEah for the give away.

I've liked scrap quilts forever. Even before I started quilting! I have my great grandmother's quilts made from clothing scraps and another made into a crazy quilt. They are so cherished! It was so hard to make a "normal" quilt and get scraps when I first started quilitng. I can't complain now, but scrap quilts will always be my preferred pattern

I like to make patchwork pillows with my scraps. Super fun and they look great in the playroom.

In December I used scraps to make some coasters to go in a coffee basket as a gift.

I've only recently gotten into sewing, so I can't say that I've done much with scraps. In fact, I was needing ideas after all my Christmas sewing, so thanks to your other commenters and their ideas! So far, I'd been thinking of making some potholders and a good ol' scrap quilt.

I like to save my large scraps to make my son fun pants and shorts. It's so fun to sew for a toddler, it's quick and easy and doesn't take much fabric.

I found your giveaway through the buttercup bag Flickr pool - lucky me! This is beautiful!! I like to make fabric 'sheets' out of my scraps by stitch and flipping onto a muslin base, then use the sheets as if they are one piece of fabric, like I did here for my fabric bucket: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bluecottage/3388485984/in/set-72157615946237238/
Thanks for this lovely giveaway..fingers crossed!

I love scraps. I make whatever I need. Usually it is a accent on another project, making something small for a cousin for their dolls, things like that. Scraps are very useful.

Bonnie M. said...

Thanks for the generous giveaway.

I like to make patchworked baggies to hold various things like small electronics, store other crafting materials, etc.

Lynne in NC said...

Thanks for some more great ideas of how to use up scraps.
I like to make keychains and small wallets with scraps.
Love the colors you have in the photo, too.
Peace.

I am into making cute fabric buttons and hair accessories at the moment from scraps - I cant get enough!

I've been making purses for my daughters and their little friends. This would be perfect.

Christine said...

I like to either applique or to patch the fabric together to do a bigger project like pillows, or sew pincushions. Lila Tueller has a wonderful pincushion pattern. coveredbydesign@hotmail dot com

Joey said...

I like to make the "frenchy" bag by Amy Butler and with the scraps leftover I have been cutting them into 2 1/2 and 4 1/2 squares to make a scrappy quilt at a later time. Most recently I have been collecting 3" squares and random sized scraps to put into "scrap" bags for children.

I use my scraps to whip up quick Thank You gifts...coin purses, pot holders, pin cushions etc. Thanks again Leah, your patterns are fabulous!

Johoanna Boykin said...

I love scraps. There are so many things you can do with them. Some of my favourite things to make with scraps are small monster dolls, and cushion covers. Add some buttons and beads and people wouldn't even know they were just scraps. Thanks for the give away, and thanks for the continual inspiration.

Mandy BJ said...

I like to use scraps to make placemats for my table top. My family has may scrap quilts from generations past. Love it!

Lisa said...

Thanks for the great giveaway. I keep all my scraps. I only throw away the inchy small scraps. I use them for applique, making yoyo's or for making strip quilts. I always find some use for my scraps. Lisa

Betti Homemaker said...

I can never bring myself to throw fabric away. My latest project with scraps was mod podge Easter eggs. I am doing a giveaway with them right now so stop by and check them out!
