That is the one problem with being a quilter......quilters are actually fabric addicts. We buy fabric just because we like it and because we "plan" to make something eventually with that fabric. It can spend years stored away in a "fabric stash."
I have spent the last couple of weekends using up my larger pieces of fabric to make bags and totes and such, but what to do with all of the small pieces can be overwhelming.
Most of the time I throw it all on a couple of shelves or in a box and wait for the inspiration to sew with it all.
Truth is, it can be too difficult a task when you are not even really sure what pieces of fabric are in the bottom of that stash box.
Now that I can see what I have, I can create something with all of these strips, scraps, and tid bits of fabrics!
The time I spent this weekend will pay off down the road when I decide to sew something with some scraps.
In fact, I found a stash of coordinating fabric and made a special little game for the kids.
Wouldn't this make a great gift for a child? It would also be a nice game to take along in the car.
Now that this fun project is finished, I have another set of fabrics that I am cutting to make a quilt.
So these are my new projects for the next few weeks.
What projects do you have going?
Have a fabulous, productive week!
