Scrap busting challenge
I'm going to help you out :)
Maybe we've all got a little too much fabric. Well, here I am to help. Gather your scraps and cut them into 2 1/2 inch strips. This is what we are going to make.
I have noted the fabric requirements below. Next Monday I will post up the cutting instructions and will continue to provide the links until the project is done. I will also post these on our facebook page so that you have two places to look. Here on the blog on our website or facebook.
You've got the week to put your thinking caps on
Please go over to our facebook and instagram pages and post pictures of your thoughts and progress I'd love to see them
