Wendy said...

Ok. I just love this giveaway thing. I actually just love your website. There are so many wonderful things. I was actually looking for a fabric flower tutorial when I found you. Thank the Lord. I am so excited about it. I found the organza flower. LOVED IT! NEEDED IT! And I figured I would sign up for the giveaway. I would have to say my fav. scrap project has been my tote bag for the kids. I just take all my scraps sew them on to a square piece of innerfacing and then make a really easy and cute tote bag. I love the randomness of the scraps and it is just plain fun time. The kids can help too.My birthday is tomorrow and maybe I will be lucky. Thanks so much for the giveaway and your great blog.
