Scrappy Bags... Or Pieces of Pretties

I love pretty wisps of things. Fabric scraps. Old buttons. Vintage wallpaper bits. Lengths of ribbon and bias tape and Ric Rac. Sweet sewing patterns. Sitting among these pieces of pretties is like playing in your beautiful grandmother's sewing basket. I could play in them all day.

In fact, I have been. And in doing so, I realized there's enough to share. So if you've been itching for a bag full of new odds and ends, head on over to the Freeman House Shop on Etsy and grab one of your very own. But hurry. There aren't many.

No pretty piece pressure or anything. *wink*

What a wonderful idea, Brin! Thank you! I think I'll have to wait until finances are a little better. Please offer again if you can.

I played with my stack of pretty paper today and had a ball! Funny how such simple things can bring such joy! Love your goodies too!

What a wonderful idea!!! I have far too many pretty things for my little house, so I think I'd be in big trouble if I ordered a scrappy bag from you! ;) I bet you'll get a lot of takers, though...

I'm so crazy about pieces of old ribbon that I keep them for bookmarks, matching the ribbon to the cover of the book.
