Scrappy Matt Giveaway

Hi, if you are visiting from Sew Mama Sew my name is Vicky. I regularly blog about sewing, crafting and upcycling. Passionate about using what we have, sewing does not have to be expensive!

Some of my favourite recent projects include:

Cable Tidy - create a roll to keep loose cables

This cable tidy really does work – my draw of messy jumbled up cables is no more:) The tutorial is here if you fancy making your own.


Upcycled Tote Bag Pattern Step by step instructions to create stylish large tote

Currently my favourite bag, this utilises three pairs of jeans, an offcut of tweed, and a former sheet for lining. Fancy making your own? Tutorial here.


Denim Rag Quilt

Occasionally my children dive bomb my photographs – this denim scrappy quilt came together quicker than I anticipate and added a great splash of personality and orginality to our very bland guest room. Tutorial here.

On to the giveaway – entry is purely a comment What is your favourite reuse of materials in your own crafting/sewing? The giveaway  is open until Sunday, December 13 at 5 p.m. PST and is international. This is now closed, thanks to random number generator the winner is commenter no 21:)

I like to layer old shirts and fabric for kitchen dishcloths. They work great and are good to look at. I love the tote bag! Thanks

The leftover scraps of fabric are great for mug rugs.

I re-use kids clothes to make all kinds of household items. They are often outgrown before they are worn out or only worn in certain areas. If I can pass them on,that's my first choice but if they aren't wearable, into the scrap basket they go.
