Scrap Attack

Eeeeek!  A big orangish spider scurried out of my scrap basket when I was sorting through it to find scraps to make this mini.


I literally used all scraps (except the border and binding) for this project.  Even the back was technically a scrap—an old yellow linen shirt of mine from back when I worked that I hadn’t worn in years.


It was fun picking out scraps for this project.  I tried to find mostly 30’s repro fabric, but a few are solids or more contemporary (like the orange pot). 


I had a lot of problems making this mini.  I am going to hang it in my sewing room, but in a corner and I hope no one ever inspects it up close.  


The inspiration came from this magazine cover and I just kind of winged it.  I am linking this mini up to the Festival of Scrappiness at Stitched in Color.  Good luck to everyone who entered!!!
