Scrap Samplers

If you would enjoy injecting a bit of Guatemala into your arts and crafts, this is for you! I'm putting together bags of huipil scraps like the one below. In each bag, you will receive 30+ pieces of scraps: some square and some rectangular (and some a little oddly-shaped!), some large (8-10" long) and some small (2-3" long). There will be a minimum of 10 different huipiles represented in each sampler. The smallest pieces will still be big enough to cut a couple squares out of, to add as decorations to your project.

In addition, each bag will include a worry doll.

  • $14 per bag
Payment and shipping Details:
  • Payment will be through
  • Please include $1 per order for shipping.
  • Orders will be shipped whenever the family member/adoptive parent returns home to the US.
To place a special order, please leave the following information in your comment:
  • an email address at which I can contact you to exchange information. Feel free to "disguise" the email address so it doesn't get picked up by spambots.
  • the number of bags you want
Here are some scrap samplers I've made and sold. Yours will not necessarily have these particular fabrics.

Hi Erin,

I'd like to purchase 2 bags of the scrap fabric. I'm inspired by your greeting card examples.
