I may have a few scraps on hand

These started out as regular 9 patch blocks, then I sliced them down the middle vertically and horizontally. Then I just mixed them all up and put them back together.  I love love love how they turned out, I think I will use this technique more often.

Stack and Slash blocks made from bandanas

I took 3 bandanas and used the stack and slash method to get these crazy blocks, I think I will do a few more and make a baby quilt with them.

Scrappy Belt Project - Finished!!!!

I even did a little quilting on it, I think it turned out cute.

I just started last night, I picked through some of my scraps for a color scheme.  I'm using a piece of felt about 1.5" wide, I know I should use something a little stiffer than felt but this is what I had on hand.  I'm trying to make this without spending any money.  
I just started to sew pieces on to the felt, trimming as I go.  This is as far as I got, before bed time, almost half way there. But its Friday now so I can stay up all night sewing if I want tonight, no work tomorrow.
I hope it turns out as cute as it is in my head.  I may do some quilting on it after I get the pieces all sewn on.
It fits better than I originally thought it would.  Total cost, probably around $0.50.  
 I had to buy some snaps, I already had everything else on hand.

Oh and how do you like my huge cutting mat, 24"x36" I found on sale for $15, I was so excited when I found it I hurried to the check out and forgot to get what I actually went to the store for.

Sewing room in progress...YAY

                                                    First we had to put in new flooring
flooring in check
Then we had to add tables and sewing machines 
Isn't she a beauty?
tables and machines in check check 
Now I just need to work on some shelving and storage for all my material.
This is what I do with the scrap pieces I don't want to forget I have.
  I have a box packed full of scraps, so its real easy to forget whats in there.
 This is my project/design wall on the other side of the room.
 It is not real big but it will work for now till i get a bigger piece of felt to hang.

here is a link to my PAY IT FORWARD, if anyone wants to do one.
