Scrap Bag Sampler – Intro Post

This post is a little overdue…. but just in case any of you (who are still around) and not on Instagram I will be one of the designers taking part in the Scrap Bag Sampler sewalong that has been organised by Just Sew Sue.

It’s a fun little sewalong that starts on 10th January with the ethos of not going out and buying new fabric or patterns to join in but rather dig through your scraps (or stash) to make small blocks every week to try get that pile under control!

Over the course of ten weeks a designer will share a project each week of a small block that is perfect to hone your skills or try out new techniques. The blocks are small enough to even been treated as leaders and enders for other projects you are working on.

During the last week a bucket bag pattern that Just Sew Sue has specially designed for this project will be released which you can use your patchwork panel for. This bag will be approx 8″ tall with a diameter of 9.5″ which means your finished panel will be 30″ x 8″.

That said if you have  a favourite bag  pattern please feel free to use that and also if you have random lone blocks lying around incorporate them into the project- anything goes.

So without further ado the designers for this project are (with links to their Instagram page): @cotefleurie @getahashtagkim @JustSewSue @lisasew @metroquilter   @picosailors @pippaspatch @quirkyhannah @therunninghare

Hope to see you all join in! If you post on Instagram please use the hashtag #scrapbagsampler so we can all find you 🙂
