Sneak Peek - Scrapbuster Jelly Roll Market Tote... coming soon

Don't forget that this week's giveaway - a Central Park Charm Pack (and maybe a little surprise) - ends tonight at midnight!

I love sewing.  I love quilting.  I love stash building (a/k/a fabric therapy).  What I'm not sure I love is scraps.

I have to admit that recently my scraps have come in handy.  In fact, they've been very useful.  When I made my mini QT quilt, I used the scraps from two other projects to make my mini mini quilts.

Kumari Gardens mini mini quilt

Bliss mini mini quilt

I also used scraps to make the decorative borders on the towel and the pot holders for my sister's birthday gift.

But frankly, the scraps are driving me out of house and home - or at least my sewing space. There are just so many of them.  And they really are taking over.

So I've decided that I'm going to devote one Saturday a month, both in my sewing and on my blog, to scrapbusting.  Surprisingly enough, I'm going to call it Scrapbuster Saturday  (catchy title, huh?  =P  ).  I'm going to try to come up with fun and innovative uses for my scraps, and I'll share them here.

Here is a sneak peek of this month's project and tutorial - a jelly roll market tote made with the scraps from the Central Park Whirly Wheels quilt.

And even better, the tote and a Sunkissed Charm Pack will be the giveaway for next week's celebration of my blogiversary.

I think the tote is pretty cool, even if it is something I designed myself.  It used only scraps, it holds two large boxes of cereal in addition to a half dozen or so other items, and it rolls into a tidy little package until you are ready to use it. 

So be sure you leave a comment on this Friday's Blogiversary post to enter for your chance to win the Jelly Roll Market Tote and a Sunkissed charm pack.

And I noticed that I'm nearing my 100th post.  You might want to comment on that one too.

Just sayin'...
