Packages Tied Up with Strings / Beauties Pageant 155

Did you see my Monday post? I’m giving away my stash of Denyse Schmidt fabrics, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I’ve had a long run with some of these fabrics—and certain designs I’ve bought again and again—but it’s time for some turnover with my stash (and, let’s be honest, an excuse to buy Denyse’s more recent collections!).

I knew that chipping away at my stash and cleaning up my sewing space would be a delight. What I wasn’t expecting was how fun it would be to cut up yardage and scraps, assemble them into sweet little piles, and tie them up with string. But it was, and now these cuties are ready to be listed in my Etsy shop between 7 and 9 p.m. tonight for $7 apiece, including shipping.

If you’re interested in a bundle for yourself, I want to temper your expectations. These bundles are small, just 4.5 to 5 ounces each, and there are only a handful of them. I hope to list a few more in the new year, after I finish my Random Hearts quilt.

I’ve had a lot of success with selling yardage and scraps. (I recommend using FeelGood Fibers for destashing like that. Read about my experience with FGF here.) If this idea of giving away fabric and asking people to pay just shipping inspires you, go for it! The next-best thing to buying fabric yourself is giving it to someone who you know will appreciate and use it!

  1. So many pretty fabric bundles! I know a few people who would enjoy them!

  2. I love Denyse Schmidt. It seems like she hasn't come out with a new line for a long while. Or have I missed something? Her fabrics are so pretty though.

  3. Such sweet little packages of fabric, Michelle. Sounds like you have been staying very busy with end of the year clean up in the quilting studio. I look forward to checking out your etsy . Thank you for hosting the link party and happy quilting.

  4. I'm sure those bundles won't last long. Hooray for freeing up space for something new!
