Default are there places

Are there places that sell grab bags of fabric? Sometimes I'd just like to be able to buy some random things but not for a huge amt of money. Like today, I'm making another wreath from fabric strips and something like that would be handy.

Moda has something called a scrap bag. Each bag contains varying width of strips with most being from 2" to 4" in width. The strips vary in length but most of WOF. It's about 1/2 lb of fabric strips. The collections are color coordinated. I bought one at my LQS a couple of years ago but I haven't done anything with it. Actually, forgot about it! I better hunt that down and get something made with it!!

http://www.fabricdepot.com/index.php...&pageid=130797 Has the best price on them but are out of stock right now.


Here are some listed on Etsy. I buy frequently from sellers on Etsy and haven't had any issues. Use Paypal! http://www.etsy.com/search/supplies?...ax=0&ref=auto1

Fabric.com usually has a by the pound bag available for around $20 (I think it works out to about $3/yd) and sometimes they have it on "sale"

I love scrap bags - have gotten some of my best fabrics this way. They're great for strip quilts and for samples of fabric that I may buy more of in the future. I've purchased a scrap bag online from www.4my3boyz.com for $3.99 which was very nice, and I've also purchased one from www.mybluebamboo.com with which I wasn't so happy at all because the fabrics were nothing like what they sell as yardage (their yardage is beautiful). Sometimes local quilt shops will also sell scrap bags - there's one in my area that sells them for $4 and I usually buy four at a time.
