I've got some scraps...

And I want YOU to win some!  Read on!

Sew, what do you do when the scrap bin is full?


You get a plastic bag and sit it right next to the bin, of course!


But when the plastic overflow bag, is, ahem, over-flowing, it is maybe time to address a concern that you might possibly never get to use all of your precious scraps! 


But what can be done?  There are some choice pieces of fabric in here!  Nevertheless, I am only one seamstress.  Despite my very best effort to go through and use all of the pink pieces to create a beautiful little quilt:


And then to send a hearty collection of blue pieces off to Liz:


Which she promptly turned into this most gorgeous "picket fence" pillow.

To add to her already impressive collection of custom pillows, almost all enhanced/made from scraps!

 

I still have TOO many scraps.  Do you want to make fun projects full of all different kinds of fabric? 


Like the Tuesday Morning pillow, a la Stitch Magazine...


Or a pair of Anna Maria Horner's Little Bo Peep skirts, that are almost entirely made from scraps?

Or maybe you saw all of Sew, Mama, Sew's ideas on scrap busting

But you don't have quite the scrap collection that I have accumulated after two years of the most desirable access to designer fabrics?!  (Thank you Korea, I love you.) 

Well then it's simple, let me mail YOU some scraps!  

AND

I have so many, I will mail 2 (TWO) people scraps!  

In addition to the scraps, and because we love our readers so much,  a full-yard of one of our favorite Anna Maria fabrics will find it's way into the scrap bag too!

Okay, here's how it will work:

*For one entry and one chance to win, just leave a comment!

*For two chances to win SCRAPS and ONE YARD of my favorite Anna Maria Horner fabric, then link our giveaway on your blog or Facebook page.  Then come back and leave a separate comment letting us know you did so with a link back to it.

*Anyone who has an address can enter.

*The contest will go until Thursday at midnight PST.  Don't miss out!!

Easy enough, right???  I'll pick two lucky winners Friday morning and announce the winners by Friday afternoon!

What a happy way to celebrate 100 blog posts of sewing fun, and 15 years full of friendship and love!  Good luck and happy sewing!!
