It’s time. Waaay past time. My fabric stash has completely taken over my basement. So I’ve joined The girls at tumbleweeds in the wind and cation designs for their Stashbusting Sewalong! You can follow any of these links to all the details,or click the button in the right hand sidebar.
First, you take the pledge,
I, Anne Maskell, commit to using 20 pieces of stash fabric in 2013. I also pledge to use as much of my lace, buttons and trim as possible.
It is totally up to you how much you pledge to use! Each month there is a different theme for sewing. Again, it is totally up to you if you follow or not. As long as you are sewing your stash, all is well.
Next, post pictures of your stash. I took pictures of some of my stash. The stuff in dressers and rubbermaid totes was too much of a pain to get out. You’ll just have to believe me when I say they are there and full! (2 6-drawer dressers and 5 large totes)
As you can see, it is piled everywhere. It’s really embarrassing. I have so many beautiful pieces ready to use, but because there is so much, it gets pushed to the back and forgotten. Does anyone else have that problem? Well, this year I intend to remedy that. Or, well, at least some of it!
In the next day or so I will be posting the outfits I just finished for my granddaughter. I actually used five different pieces of fabric. I’ll give you a hint, the two pieces of aqua coloured fabric was used to make one outfit!
