In early June my former teacher gave me a box of free fabric.. and then followed up with ANOTHER box of fabrics as she tried to de-stash her collection. I didn’t even know what to do with most of the yardage, so when the next box came I was already feeling a bit overwhelmed (as is my sewing area). This second box though wasn’t yardage… but home -decorating samples… totally different. I took a few pieces, not entirely sure what I’d do with them, and passed the rest along to a crafty-artsy-sewing friend.

My fabric-fairy-godmother strikes again! This time I was given a filing box full of home decorating #fabric samples. Largest are placemat size, smallest are coaster size. Some paper-frame-backed, some not. Some appear cotton, some obviously synthetic. Others blends. Can any of my #crafty #DIY friends use this? I just don't think I can use this right now, since I'm focusing on garments, not crafts.
I figured that if I didn’t use up these samples super-fast, they were just going to sit in a bag and breed on the floor of my sewing room (which is looking far less organized right now than I’d like, with piles of wools and silks and cottons all over they place…. all of my organized storage is full…) SO… what to do with a whole bunch of sample-sized fabrics?
