|Various sizes between 0.5 and 2m - 27 pieces|
|Anything from 2m to 5m - 20 pieces|
Style The Stash is her latest idea. She has set up a separate blog for all of us that are participating. I'm really looking forward to it, everything starts on the 1st of June. This starting date is great for me, there were other stashbusters that started as New Year's resolutions but I wasn't able to commit to them earlier in the year.
Basically, these are the guidelines:
- the sewalong runs from 1st June to 31st Dec, covering 2 seasons and some holidays
- each month the participants make up a garment from their stash
- it's free choice of what to make but Sarah Liz has given some ideas
- we can make more than one item (given my track record this is unlikely!)
- if you don't get finished you can just carry your item over
- the focus is to sew something and use up some stash
It's pretty clear, with my recent paltry turnover, that I have enough fabric to keep me busy for about 20 years - 47 useable, clothes-sized pieces. I don't need to buy any more, my fabric and pattern buying ban are still needed, having too much stuff is overwhelming ... yep, I've already fallen off the wagon ... but, in my defence, I don't like odd numbers so I picked up 3 bargains today and have a nice, round 50 pieces - woo, hoo!
|This remnant is going to be a bag - using this brilliant tutorial which I've tweaked before|
|And another remnant for a bag - obviously|
|This is an odd shape, I think I have about 1.4 metres, uncut and then |
there's another 1.4 metres that have some tiny pieces cut out of them,
mostly at one edge.
I haven't figured out what this is for yet but it's beautiful.
* Quilting supplies, Christmas fabrics, home décor weights, scraps (significant or otherwise), muslins etc don't count, OK? Good :) Oh, and I cannot bring myself to catalogue my patterns yet - I know I have 'issues' - I've bought 2 more today! I'll save that confession for another day :)
