It's the end of another month. I did a decent amount of stash busting this month. Although a lot of it resulted from destashing on Etsy rather than actual sewing. I've come to realize that having too much of fabric just makes me overwhelmed (I know this sounds crazy to a lot of quilters). It was nice to purge those fabrics I didn't see myself using. My sewing style and tastes have changed over the past couple years. I feel as though I'm in the process of refining my stash and making it more usable for my quilting style. I did restock my collection of Pure Elements including some half yards of a few new colors. I was getting pretty low on some of my favorite colors. Other than that I didn't add much to the stash.
I had a couple stash busting projects this month. First off, most of the bubble quilt was made from my stash. I bought 1/4 yards of 6 new pinks, but other than that it was all stash.
I also began some Christmas/gift sewing. When going through my stash again this month, I pulled fabrics to make some Jane Market bags. I also cut out a few bags using the Oh Fransson's Perfect Zip pattern. I want some bags on hand for gifts including Christmas gifts. I didn't get farther than cutting all these out, but that alone took a lot of time. It was a good sewing related activity when my little guy was recovering from his tonsillectomy. I didn't get much sewing done during his recovery. I'll slowly start working on these as I get time. Pretty soon I'll have about 10 bags on hand when I need a quick gift for a friend.
So what have you been sewing from your stash this month?
