Scraps for Art Quilts, scraps for quilted postcards,scraps for childrens quilts or toys, scraps for greeting cards. That's what scraps are for...use them for mosaic fabric pieces. I'd love to win but even if I don't I still have to grin!

It's fun to take all your scraps and make quilts and toys and cards out of them, my favorite is quilts, but I'm gonna try the cards next. Thanks!!!

I don't have much fabric but I would love to make a wonky square quilt made from all different kinds of material cut into different size wonky squares. I think that would be fun and very interesting.

Due to being home every day now...unable to work with disabilities; I find myself more and more enjoying my sewing machine and associated goodies I had collected over the years.  FULL of intent to make my 1st cool million by crafting... ahh dreaming... but I do enjoy my accomplishments.   I hate spending so much money on meaningless cards when I  know I can make one that is much more meaningful for them and for me. 

I love sewing with my scraps and small pieces as much as the larger pieces of fabric. 

Barbie Doll clothes take such itty-bitty pieces, as do other fun mini quilts and such.

Love the return to hand-crafted goodness.

oh Susan, you Temptress....

How would l use these scraps if i won?

1) I would go through the coveted scraps, feeling, envisioning, imagining

2) I would put them in 'piles' :Caring 4 Canadians (yahoo) charity group, Sewing Classes at the school I work at, Me.  I would have to do this multiple times, having to rethink which fabric scrap to which pile! 

3) In order to keep the Me Pile I would have to go to my existing stash and exchange one for one and those that are replaced by winning stash will go to the other 2 piles: charity and school...

I made my dh this card for his birthday....I had no clue what i was doing but just created as i went along....I love to make cards, usually embellishing purchased cards but would love to make fabric cards for family and friends for their special occasions!  Thank you for the idea and for incentive to start thinking and WANTING to do this..I am off this week (spring break) and i am going to make a card.  Wish me luck!

PS...that is sand writing...LOL   says 'Happy Birthday Gord"! ) for his birthday one year...It was something i just created as i sewed along...not even realizing what i was you will be able to tell from the photo

This is so cool. I surely am going to enjoy using this card maker instructions. I am so tired of paying the high prices at the store for cards to send out for the holidays, along with birthdays, and all those other times we send out cards, just cause. This is going to be the best. I don't think my poetry will win any prizes, but then that's just fine with me. It's always the thought that counts.Thanks,Linda

This is such a  good idea! I never thought of a card to match the outfit/gift being given! I love it!

The tutorial is great. I love to have pictures when following a tutorial as I am a visual learner. I love scraps! I have even bought them by the bag load at Quilt Shows, as if I don't have enough of my own! The scraps that are large enough to make into a square, I do, and then I stitch them together to make a scrappy quilt. Scraps can also be used to stuff a small pillow. I did all the directions needed to enter, some I didn't have to do because I already had done them. I am also posting this on my blog at Thanks for a chance to win.
