Ok. Tonight I put together some of the scrap bags and as I was making them, (weighing them!!!see below) I decided that $6 will get you over 1 pound of this heavy home dec weight cotton, not just a half pound as originally promised. That enables you to get enough fabric for a good range of projects. And with the money you save not buying this at some store... You can go get an awesome book (used on amazon is my trick...) with ideas for patchwork projects... The image here of the stack is a smattering of what is in one bag.
