#thegreatfabricdestash

I need to make room for fabric that is being stored for me elsewhere and what easier way to do that than with a massive destash. Join me this week (18-24 August) for flurry of fabrics ranging from fat sixteenths to fat quarters, patterns to yardage. I’ll be selling it off through my new Instagram account, so follow me there, then claim the items you want by leaving your email address and zip code. I’ll be calculating shipping and sending invoices next Monday for shipping as soon as the money is received. Hope to see you on IG! IMG_9291

It’s Giveaway Day-Week!

Twice each year, Sew,Mama,Sew! does this awesome thing called Giveaway Day. I haven’t been able to participate in a while with life being a bit crazy, then forgetting, and thinking I’ll do it the next time, then not.

But this year I am doing it! And what am I giving away you ask. How about a little four-pack of fat-sixteenths! Sew,Mama,Sew! Giveaway from Crinkle Dreams

I love these itty-bitty bits of fabric. They’re the perfect size for all sorts of crafts and scrappy quilting and little bits of fun on anything. These four packs include fabrics from Suzy Ultman, Carolyn Friedlander, Lizzy House and Laurie Wisbrun for a total of 16 fat sixteenths.

To win the fabric quartet, comment and tell me about your favorite scrappy project (finished or on your to-make list). Feel free to include a link–I’d love to see YOUR work, too.

Follow me at facebook.com/crinkledreams or Instagram and check out my shop on Etsy for more fabric scraps, kits and finished samples.

If you’re interested in participating in my Sew Em Be sewing drive, let me know in the comments as well.

Thank Goodness for Scrap Sixteenths

What did you spend your long Thanksgiving weekend doing? I spent the bulk of three days cutting down my scraps in to useable and saleable pieces: fat sixteenths. I really love this size for its ability to be used for crafts or patchwork or just little accents on projects and have been wanting to make my scrap stash a little more useful.

With the recent need to move into a new place, though, it means I need to sell them more than keep them. Suddenly I have deposits to pay, a refrigerator to stock and furniture to buy and on the same old paycheck I’ve been getting. What’s a girl with a ridiculous amount of fabric supposed to do? Sell it, of course!

There are a dozen or so up on the Etsy site now, with plenty more to come, along with coffee cozy kits that are a little slower to get up (I ran out of parts for the covered button–oops!).

The little cuties are 9- by 11-inches and are only $3 each. Check ’em out and spread the word, if you wouldn’t mind.

xo, t!
