free fabric friday!

ok, so i think i stole that title from sew mama sew, so go visit them, too, for something fabulous.

but here, today, i’m giving away 3 or 4 gallon size ziplock bags stuffed with my studio scraps. i don’t want the winners (yes, there’ll be more than 1) to be disappointed when they see my scraps, but they are what they are – scraps! there are a few larger pieces of fabric that are just not my style, maybe pieces from a custom job or pieces i’ve been holding onto for too long.

but my work space is being redesigned and it was high time for a clean-out. i struggle throwing away any scraps larger than a quarter, so i thought i’d ease the pack rat pain and give it away.

how do you enter this fabulous giveaway, you ask? just leave a comment telling me what you’d like me to blog about soon. this girls is plum fresh out of ideas!

*****comments closed! i’ll choose a winner soon!*****

    scraps of Oh I could do so much!!

    I would like to hear about how you first started sewing. As in who taught you, what age you were, what was the first thing you made and how/when you came up w/pleated poppy

  5. 5

    Pics of your house. The kitchen was to die for! I showed it to my sister when she came to visit. How about a tutorial? Nothing in your store. But something to do with the scraps??

  6. 6

    oooh a little peek into your design process would be nice, or how you got your business started…

    little scraps make me very excited!!

    Mama Mote says:

    As if I need more scraps, but I'm sure I could use them for a couple of things I actually do. How about, "A Day in the Life" and let us follow you through a "typical" day – which I'm sure they are all different. Hugs, Linds.

    scraps. lovely, inspiring scraps. its amazing what happens to me when i have a new bit of fabric in my hands.

    i enjoy hearing about the bits of your normal, every day world. i find it inspiring and refreshing and of course, even when there are catastrophies to report, i smile right along with you. maybe you could write about how you got to where you are today. your little story of your world today coming together. your "ah-ha!" moment. :)

    Hi Lindsey!
    This girl needs MORE fabric (since a whole craft room full isn't enough- just being honest ;). I actually think I'd use the scraps for our craft night for church.
    As for blogging ideas- any tutorials, sewing, parties. Anything! I save your blog for last on my list (like I save the best for last on my plate at dinner time) because it's my fave.

    I was homeschooled, were you homeschooled? I know you homeschool your kids so I was just wondering if you were homeschooled too. What books do you use? Do you have a convention where you live where they sell books to homeschooling parents? We have the GHEA here. You can blog about that! :) Hope this helps!

    being a young married considering kids and loving crafting, i'd enjoy knowing how you decided when you ready to have kids, what the transition was like, and was each one harder than the other? is 2 harder than 1, is 3 harder than 2 etc. i'm a PLANNER these things stress me out! :)

  64. 64

    With the holiday baking seasons coming soon, I would love to see if you have any designs/ideas for children's aprons. Or even adult aprons that would be good hostess gifts.

  74. 74

    I would LOVE a tutorial about how you re-finish furniture. I have done a few things in the past, some have worked, others not so much. I know there are little secrets to distressing I just need to know what works best. What do you use/do from start to finish??

  75. 75

    Free Fabric, Oh I love to use scraps, little trims and ends always seems to find a place to shine. I just used two little red poms I had left over for cherries on a ruffled trim for my grandbaby's jeans. How about jeans as a blog? How fun is it to trim up your favorites, ric rak, poms, a bit of lace, maybe even a quilt scrap heart on a much used knee! All the better to kneel on to hug a baby or pray to a loving Father!
    I love your stuff!
    Bless U
