The Scraps and nothing but the Scraps

Hi ya! Hope you had a good weekend.

I sure did! Last week, I pulled out this big ol' bucket of scrap wool and just let it inspire me for a bit.


We all have a scrap bucket don't we? I have a wool, fabric, fusible web, batting interfacing and Valdani threads, scrap buckets! I can't help it, stuff is expensive and I know I can use those little bits of stuff for something.


So, I started sketching an idea and then one thing lead to another and to another. Starting this Friday I will be sharing Five FREE Friday designs. Each design will be an ornament for Christmas. BUT, there is a twist. The ornaments are not just ornaments...you'll have to wait and see. Also, these are not your ordinary, same old tree, wreath, candy cane, etc. ornaments. Oh no, they will all feature some type of animal. Ok...so you already know the first one features a bunny. ;)


(Saw this at the local quilt show and just had to share. Isn't it cute? Love the mini Ott light!)

I will have a tutorial here and then a link to the pattern. Again, it will all be FREE. It's just my way of saying thank you for being the most wonderful friends and a way to start this beautiful season of giving off on a fun note.

So, tell your friends and all your stitching buddies to gather their scraps and hop back here on Friday.

Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle, the Bunnies and Sabrina too!

Oh Shell, I LOVE MINIATURES and this one is so adorable, with quilt and all! And I wonder if I can pull some scraps to even try my hand at your project. I WILL BE BACK! Have a great day....we are having our first snow of the season RIGHT NOW as I type, so I have to drive extra careful this morning! XOXOX

I could just snuggle up in those lovely wool scraps on this chilly morning! I wonder what the wee creatures are that have been hiding there - we shall soon see!

Maybe you lived an alternate life during the great depression! I seem too, to recall once where Martha Stewart had a way to make mouse ear-warmers out of saved, dried, used tea-bags.

Thoeria said...

Yep....things are costly and I too try not to toss unless the scrap will not be able to be used for anything else!
Looking forward to your Friday intrigue!
