Hi there!  I’m excited to have a copy of Stash Happy: Patchwork by Cynthia Shaffer to review, AND Lark has generously offered to send a copy to one of you!  Read on to learn how to win –

Knowing that you love fabric, as much as I do – there’s always little scraps left over from projects, that are to big to toss, but I don’t always have a specific plan for them either.  This book is the solution!  There’s 25 adorable projects to guide and inspire you.  Isn’t the cover fantastic?  Here’s a few of my favorite projects from the book:

Cynthia includes clear, easy to understand instructions for each project, basic embroidery stitches, and general sewing basics.  Including paper-piecing these hexagons, to make this honeycomb sheet set.  So fun and can work with any existing sheet sets, and your favorite splash of color!

As I turned from page to page, I kept thinking, “I want to make that!”  These nesting bowls are adorable – can’t wait to make them!  All the patterns pieces/templates are included in the back of the book.

This Sew on the go kit is so sweet!  The perfect small size to stash in your bag, or have handy on the couch.  It has a pin cushion in the bottom, and pockets for scissors and thread.

The Hobo bag!  So clever, and fantastic – you’ll have to get a copy of the book to know just how clever, but this is another favorite I can’t wait to make!  (maybe even this weekend)

Along with these super projects there’s also pin cushions, a bento box, a cute panda pillow, a girls dress, and ladies skirt!  More home decor includes a bistro set, a chair pad, and a bucket tote – perfect for toys or crafting supplies!


If you would like to win a copy of Stash Happy: Patchwork

Leave me a comment about how you organize (or don’t) your scraps!

Personally, when cutting fabric if  pieces no longer need to be folded they get stuck in a bag, to be cut for hexies or kept for later.

I’ll select a winner on Wednesday, June 15th.

Good luck – Amy
