#the100scrapchallenge


Ever since our move in August I've been trying to organize my studio and all the supplies in the most efficient way possible, which so far has meant moving things around constantly. I think I need to take a little break and just see what works and what doesn't for a while and then get back to it again in a few months.

Last week though, as I was rearranging things yet again, I realized I have FIVE buckets chock full of scraps! I don't even know how that happened. I use my scraps all the time but it still feels like they multiply every time I look away :). Does that happen to you too?


So I came up with a fun challenge. Well, actually the idea isn't really mine, Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts did a similar challenge a while back and I absolutely loved seeing her progress, so I thought now would be a good time for me to give it a go. I'm calling it The 100 Scrap Challenge (#the100scrapchallenge, suggested by @sewrealco) and the idea is to see how long it will take me to make 100 projects using scraps only. Pretty fun, right? Of course I'll be working on other projects and using regular fabric as well, but only projects from my scrap buckets will be counted.


I even have my first project to show you today :)

This pouch is made using QAYG (quilt as you go) technique and was a great way to use up some small scraps. I think it came out really nicely and can't wait to do more scrappy sewing.

Before I do though, I'm trying to bring some order to my scraps. Because, well, right now this is what just one bucket of my scraps looks like.


Pretty horrendous, right? I hope to find a system for sorting them so I know what (and how much) I actually have. I now started pressing them all and sorting them in piles by colors and materials. I'll let you know later how well this works for me.

You all are welcome to join me if you wish. There's no time pressure, the idea is to enjoy the process and use up as many of our scraps as possible. Just use #the100scrapchallenge and post to Instagram so we all can see the fantastic projects you create. Or, just check out the hashtag if you're looking for some scrappy inspiration, I've already seen quite a few fantastic projects added there.

Wishing you all a happy and creative day. Svetlana

    1. I know, we all have lots of lovely scraps to work with :). I personally don't save selvages but you can find some tutorial online for sure. Have fun.

  2. I love this! Yes, I am ready to take on the challenge! I totally know what you mean about them multiplying. It's crazy.

  3. I have as many or more scraps than you have!!! Yes they do multiply likes rabbits too, lol!! Even though I use scraps all the time, the scraps never seem to get smaller.

  4. I have bins and bins of scraps! Once I get the current projects done which is multiple baby quilts made from strips that had been laying around for 6+ years, I planned on declaring 2020 the year of the scrap at my studio. I had a friend over New Years a couple years ago and we sorted my scraps by color. They have gotten just thrown in a pile since then - yikes! Good luck with your 100 projects from scraps. I have no idea how to use Instagram or what you do with a hashtag.

  7. Great idea, and I should do the same! Have fun - you've got such great scraps!

  8. I love all the scraps. Mine keep growing and growing though I am trying to make things from them I usually have to pair the scraps with some bigger piece I have in my stash like for backgrounds or whatever. I guess since this is for fun it doesn't matter as long as i keep sewing scraps. :) I don't even know how to start to get organized. ha we will see what I come up with.

  9. This sounds like fun. I did follow Amanda Jean while she whittled down (ha) her scrap pile. I currently have a box of her tiny 9 patch blocks started. It might take me a year of 2 but I'm in.

  14. Even the best-of-the-best platforms will become outdated if you’re a rapidly growing company, and every time you come up with something you just simply outgrow your eCommerce platform. But that doesn’t mean you’re all alone. Global eCommerce sales neared $2.86 trillion in 2018 (up from $2.43 trillion the previous year) and it grew 18% compared to 2017.

  15. Hi there. I sooo love your great idea, Thank you very much for starting this!!! I am also trying to get rid of my scraps-overload which is almost overwhelming... and creating smaller things is so much faster and easier than this huge scrappy quilt project... (I am making blocks for years now but only like a couple per year). Hope to post my first project soon. Happy sewing, Andrea
