As you probably know if you have read many of my posts, I have a certain fondness for scraps.
Truth be told, I love a good scrap pack. I bought one just the other day.
They’re like a lucky dip, full of variety and excitement. It’s such fun putting the scraps together in different combinations. An inspiring excuse to mess around and get the creative juices flowing.
I also find it very difficult to throw away any of the scraps I produce.
My next stall is at the Secret Garden Craft Fair in Sherwood next month. Sherwood is where I used to live and is also home to The Textile Workshop where I do all my sewing classes.
Sherwood peeps are a pretty crafty crowd.
I thought they might appreciate some choice scrappy goodness from my stash… so I’m going to contribute to the happy scrap-a-rama and make up a few scrap packs of my own to sell on my stall.
After all, my vintage fabrics are likely to be new to the Sherwood punters and I do have some nice bits, though I say so myself.
I’m going to do five inch squares in packs of ten for £3.00. Scrappy goodness enough to make a cushion cover front – with a bit to spare.
Or sufficient pincushions to stash the most enthusiastic collection of pins.
Or to add some cute pockets to some summer t-shirts. Or… or…
I could go on…
And it will also mean that I have something to tempt those people who always come up to your stall and say they’re going to go home and make something similar themselves, rather than buy what I’ve made.
So there’ll be no excuses and no escaping modflowers’ vintage fabric web (*evil chuckle*).
