Moda Scrap Bags

We received a large shipment of scrap bags in today ~ and when I say large let me tell you.....

The Moda Scrap Bag is a relatively new phenomenon.  One day the owner of Moda fabrics was visiting the plant where they make Layer Cakes, and he noticed that the scraps were being discarded.  He decided to salvage (no pun intended!) the scraps and the "Moda Scrap Bag" was born.  Since these cute little brown bags contain the same great fabrics as the Layer Cakes, most are color coordinated, although I have come across a few that are a hodge-podge from different collections. 

They are quite popular, and shipment has been sporadic, with long intervals between shipments ~ at times I have waited over six months on back orders!  So, in order to make sure I get these little gems in stock, I would place an order for one or two boxes, every four to six weeks.  Well, (and I'm sure you can guess what I am going to say next), all those back orders shipped at once and here they are at my doorstep ~ 126 scrap bags!!!  That is not a bad thing ~ I am absolutely thrilled!

Keep in mind, these cleaver little bags contain fabrics from future fabric collections, soon to be released!  They are not fabrics that you have been seeing in your local stores or on the web.  Each bag contains varying widths and lengths of fabric strips, most are 2" to 4" wide and are 32" or longer, some are salvage strips. There isn't a specific amount of strips in these little bags (like you get with Jelly Rolls), because they are based on weight.  Each bag weighs approximately 11 ounces (that's over a 1/2 pound of beautiful Moda fabric scraps!) Perfect for any scrap project.

At Alaska Quilting Adventures we offer Moda Scrap Bags at $9.84/each,
that's 18% off the Suggested Retail Price (SRP) of $11.99!
