    If this is in poor taste, let me know, don't want to be offensive--but I thought I would just ask. I am so new to this, everything is an experiment. I only shop yard sales and classified ads for fabric at this point, because I have no budget for this stuff, and I find the best deals there. (Plus I make alot of mistakes!) I made my pouch out of pieces of fabric I got for 25 cents each! If you have any scraps of fabrics you don't want I would love to have them!! I would certainly appreciate and make good use of any! Thanks!

    Hi QW
    Try re-posting this in the classifieds, under wanted. I am sure that there will be many people that will help you. I'm not a beginner, but I am in the same boat as it relents to fabric. Sorry I can't help.

    "Bumping" sends the message back to the top so more people see it (read it, and hopefully respond to it). It's a good thing.

    What is your definition of "scraps?" Some ppl are happy with a 1" snippet and others think fatquarter. Also, do you have any color preferences?
