Scrap-Happy July 2021

Lots of scrappy work going on around my house as I try to get things ready to get the house ready to go on the market this week.  (Photos coming on Friday, and going live either Saturday or Sunday.)

First there were three filled gallon sized zippered bags of scraps that went to a friend.   They will ultimately end up give to her mom who has dementia and loves to look at lots of fabrics.
Next up was taking a 2 gallon bag of black solid scraps, many of which I've had bagged up for years since I last made scrub tops.   

There were 10" squares already in the scraps and a few larger pieces that I left as is.   Then I trimmed the rest down to 5", 4.5", 3.5" and 2.5" squares, and a couple 2.5" wide strips.   
Next up was using pieces of fabric left over from prior orders of bowl cozies for another commissioned order.   2 more bowl cozies, and then 3 sets of 2 potholders.   Remnants were used for the reverse sides of all pieces.
The next project was another commissioned item - a zippered pouch for a good friend.  This was made with strips of fabric that had been leftover from a couple of the blocks I made in last years row by row quilt.  A scrap piece of black was added to the bottom of the pouch for the bottom.  Lining and batting used in it were also scraps.  
The pouch was made with a boxed bottom to it.
Two bowl cozies were made for another commission from orphan blocks made from the scraps from a long ago project.  Fabric on the reverse side side was from a remnant in the stash.
This commission was to personalize two towels for high school kids of a friend from church.  The fabrics were from remnants.   Names were cross-stitched on scrap pieces of aida cloth and the threads used were threads leftover from years worth of kits worked on over the years.  

1. The house is looking a lot neater as I clean, toss, and pack things up.

2. For the blessings of friendship


  1. I will say it yet again: your scrap organisation is intimidatingly good. Mine are organised by colour. That's it... Well done on having the discipline to be so well prepared!

  2. I love your size guide for scraps. I have started to sort/trim several of mine to size and this is wodnerful guide. Great bowl cosies also

  3. These are all wonderful projects. I'm glad to be the recipient of some of it, too! Thank you so much for all you make and share.

  4. You can never have too many potholders, I say. So many great things you´ve done with your scraps!
