#46...from me to you

I have piles and piles of fabric leftovers........scraps from various projects. The scrap fabrics are so pretty, but not really big enough for most projects, and have remained folded in my stacks....some for years. I was clearing out one such pile this weekend, toying with the idea of giving away some of the decent size scrap pieces, when I had this idea that I could comb through the scraps, whip up some pillow covers, and give them away here!

It is so cathartic to clear out, and equally as self fulfilling to be able to give away something pretty that I made, to those friends, family and readers out there that have been supporting me by following my endeavours on this blog.

So....... each Monday in August, (there are 5) I am going to post a different scrap pillow cover that I want to give away to You! All you have to do to put your name in the hat, is leave me a comment on this post. I'll randomly draw a name on Friday, and post the winner of each week's pillow cover. Each pillow cover is an envelope style pillow that fits an 18x18 pillow form (sorry, I'm not giving the filler pillow away). Each cover is made of a cotton blend, and can be tossed in the wash over and over. Shipping to U.S. destinations is included for each pillow cover giveaway.

The first pillow cover up for grabs, is made from scraps of a tablecloth I got from Anthropologie. It is white and chartreuse and I added mint green plaid striped ribbon ties to hold the pillow form in.

Good Luck and thanks for reading!
