I thought I would take a quick minute to share about an item in the shop this week. It is a flat rate box stuffed full with wool scraps that I am selling for only $1.00! The box is a large flat rate box which costs $14.00 to ship, so I wanted to keep the cost low in order that these scraps make it to a home in need of them. These scraps measure 1 inch to 6 inches in size maybe more. They are the perfect size for applique, hair accessories, brooches, plushies, crazy quilting, eco friendly stuffing, etc. I do use scraps this size in my work but I have an abundance of them that I will not get to! In the quest not to waste, I want to pass them on for the cost of shipping. There are 2 boxes at this point, in the shop. I will most likely always have more, so feel free to request more if you do not see any in the shop. I can also put together a box or envelope if you are loking for a smaller amount. The medium flat rate boxes are $10.20 and the envelopes are $4.75. Here are some examples of the wool included in these boxes.
Here are some examples of things that can be made from wool scraps...
You can make brooches out of scraps,
Hair accessories-this one has been sewn to a headband,
And appliques for mittens, hats, totes, pillows, etc.
Wool scraps can also be used for making plushies- AKA stuffed animals.
