It’s National Sewing Month, and my focus here at The Sewing Loft is going to be all about scrap sewing! This is a great opportunity to get ideas & inspiration to clear out that scrap basket and make something fun. All month long I’ll be sharing ideas (along with some fabulous guest contributors) for how to store, use, and enjoy your stash of scrap fabrics.
So … I thought it might be fun to issue a challenge! Don’t just read about sewing with scraps – actually sew something! If that sounds like a good idea to you, join in!
Scrap Sewing Challenge
- Create something from your scraps!
- It can be as simple mug rug or as elaborate as a quilt top.
- Projects must be made during National Sewing Month.
- You must photograph your project and enter it into the Facebook album by 9/25/15 in order to enter to win the prize.
Contestants will be judged on creative use of scraps, so let your imagination take the lead!
All projects must be posted in the our Scrappy Girls Club Facebook Group under this special album.
Winners will be selected and announced at the end of the month – so get sewing! Make any project using scrap fabrics between now and the end of this month and enter your photos on Facebook to enter to win a fabulous prize!*
*Note: This is above and BEYOND my regular National Sewing Month give-away!

Great challenge. I have a project in mind!
I do not have a Facebook account nor do I care to get one. Isn’t the point of the Blog to share ideas with like minded people and get inspiration. The are so many blogs, videos, Pinterest etc out there it’s hard to keep up and still find time to sew.
I completely understand Frans. The Facebook group is just another way for everyone to interact as a community. National Sewing Month has tons of fun goodies coming up so, have no fear – more is coming your way.
Ugh! Just realized I missed the deadline!! Oh well. I did finish a scrappy project. 🙂
