    Thanks for kind remarks on my small stuff--MaryMo I have random 4P and 9P's sewn ready to insert into various quilt settings and sizes. When I need to just mindlessly sew I make a bunch and set aside in a marked container and pull them out when I decide to make a small quilt. Or I use them as leaders and enders when sewing larger projects. So yes take you scraps and get sewing

    PS I've been pressed for time with family visitors and family/farm commitments. One of these times I will get in on a swap.....

    Marich, Minimum length would be 10" up, width any where from 1 1/2" to 3". Let me know what you need. I have never swapped here.
    Rhonda, are we supposed to let you know what we are doing? You have my name and address. Is there anything else needed or can we just go ahead and have fun?

    Judy5cents...love that scrappy...I think I'll make one with the leaders/enders I've been accumulating again. Here's some more scrappies...I'm on a purse kick lately. All are scraps & from stash...The floral tabletopper I appliqued the butterflies on (I just had the 1 panel piece & thought it needed a little something). The purses I adapted from a snap bag pattern (added the strap & pocket inside & enlarged alittle). The last one is made from scraps I pulled out of my daughter's trashcan when I was there in N.C. last month...she had been working on one of Judy's mysteries & it was leftover scraps from that. Her trash was my treasure. I have enough to make another scrappy purse, but will make a different one from these. Enjoy!

    Forgot to add that I just happened to have the tourq. she used in my stash, so that's what I used for the lining. Even the strap is pieced on this...

    VickiM - love your purses.

    Did you still keep the metal snap tape in them or just have them as an open tote?
    Is that a two-layer set of pockets inside or was it more of your scraps? I'd never thought of a double layer pocket but I think it would be a good idea!

    How do we know who we are swapping with, please? I have lots of scraps, so I should be able to swap with anyone. I have no preference as to what I want or need! I just like swapping fabrics.
    Sew, sew, it's the threads that keep love together :>} I love sunbonnet sue,old-fashioned things like 1950's or older housewife things, and like hankies,tea towels and aprons . Thanks to some lovely members on here I now have lots of aprons in my collection !!

    I have to find the bag, but I have a bunch of 2.5" strips I cut up from fabric that I had received from inheritance. I put them in a bag in a pile somewhere. I would be willing to swap a bunch of that out. I also have other scraps I can swap, just have to dig in the bins and find them. I am not positive what all is in them. I know, just move them on girl. I will let go. Lord knows I have enough fabric to work with. I think if possible, would like some red scraps to finish up my crazy star quilt that has been started way to long ago. It needed more reds for the center point and I did not have any at the time so i set it aside. See how I am.

    Yes, the metal tape is in them...the red/white one didn't close as well as I thought it should so I also added a strip of velcro in keep it closed...the other 2 were ok. That one was more of an upholstry weight fabric, so I think that made a difference. The pockets are just scraps too...it's not double layer pocket. I do make a zipper area & a pocket right behind it & also pockets below a zip area. Here are 3 purses I just finished today...2 are for my daughter in N.C. (a summer & a winter) & the flamingo purse will be for my booth...they are scrappy too. My daughter picked out her scraps while she was here a couple weeks ago. Anyway, her purse inside shows the pocket behind the zip area along with a pocket & pen holder on the other side. These were made from a free pattern I got online called COCOA (http://www.chriswdesigns.com) but as you can see, I made it MY way. I can't leave a recipe alone either... Anyway here are the purses & also the first one I made from that pattern that I thought my daughter would like but she wanted different so I will put the seashell one in my booth for the show in a couple weeks. I thought her tutorial was excellent!

    No pattern for the snap purses other that to make the snap purse in a larger size & add strap & pockets. Most of the purses I make are my own imagination or adapted from a pattern I like but have to still do it MY way. Just play...

    VickiM - if I were a person who was into bags/purses, I would buy yours in a minute. They are all fabulous. On another note, has anyone heard from Stitchengramie? Her inbox is full and I need to reach her re a personal exchange between her and I.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!
