About

Life is messy. We are in this together.

I can't seem to throw away even the smallest of fabric scraps. My pile was small at first, but quickly grew. They were overtaking the family room. This made for a big mess. I finally decided I needed to do something. I organized and sorted--by color--by size--by designer. I cut and packaged my scraps. Now they are organized. My husband is much happier. My kids aren't questioning my sanity--well, mostly. Now, I can share them with you.

I just love that each of our lives are made up of lots of little bits--bits of time, bits of frustration, bits of fun. Together these little bits make up who we are as individuals, as families, as friends. Just like my piles of fabric scraps, life can get messy--really messy---really quick. That is where the name "Our Life in Scraps" came from. It evokes a togetherness, a need for each other. Life brings together all of our little bits and creates something beautiful from the scrappy mess of just "me".

    I enjoyed sorting buttons and playing with scraps while my mom sewed my next dress. That grew to a passion for fabric and making things for my husband and four kids. I enjoy the creative process through sewing, knitting, quilting and tatting.

It is the little bits of time that make up each day, and from the littlest bits of fabric we make beautiful creations. This is the heart of "Our Life in Scraps". Even when the bits of life are messy, we are in this together, which makes life beautiful.

Here is more information about my beautiful "Scraps":

"Scrap Bags":
These are the smallest pieces of fabric (1.5 inches x 2 inches) up to a fat quarter size (18" x 22"). They are organized either by designer or by color and sold in a generous 16 ounce size bag. (Always just a little bit more than 16 ounces)

The "Remnants" section contains various shapes and sizes and is also listed under each designer section. The dimensions of each remnant are different, so they are grouped according to square yardage:
1/4 yard-1/2 yard are $3.00
1/2 yard - 3/4 yard are $4.00
3/4 yard- 1 yard are $5.00
1 yard is $6.00
2 yards are $12.00
Under 4 yards are priced by the yard.

Fabric pieces greater than 4 yards are listed under the various designers.
