Yippee!  Now I can post one of my destashing swap goodies.  My partner has received and posted so I'll just link on over to that.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=286511.0

The skulls on the wall hanging I cut out this summer because I had an idea about making a sugar skull quilt.  So everything, fabric, ribbon, buttons, skull appliques even the hanger I included were out of my stash.  I got to use up a lot of little bits of fabric and tossed the tiny bits left over.  The tote bag itself was made out of some sort of slipcover a friend gave me that had never been used.  The only thing I bought was the skull fabric on the tote (1/2 yard) and the skull fabric for the headband (1/4 yard).  The rest of the headband and elastic was out of my stash.  I've also completed one horribly bright and tacky apron (my mom's specs for aprons she wants).  Still 3 left to finish, but they're all cut and ready.  When I get all of the aprons done I'll post em.  They're 100% from my stash.

Yay, I actually finished a few things on my to-do list! I finished my crafty tidy & freecycled a big bag (to a woman that volunteers with children, so that's a bonus!). [Um... but okay, I didn't do the fabric. It is mostly organized in my old toybox anyway and a hanging stuffed toy thing anyway, so for now I'm leaving it be. Maybe in February!]

And I finished myself a little sunglasses case so my nice new shades won't get scratched in a bit of skull-finity fabric I had. (Didn't end up being lined with white faux fur after all!)

I'll post pics of my crafty organization and sunglassses case later today or tomorrow...

And I'm in the works of another crafty destash project: my offering for the FOC Raffle 4 Swap! Cheesy (And it's coming along nicely).

I hesitate to post this because you guys are posting such fantastic stuff!  But one of my wishes this year is to really work on my crochet skills, learning to read patterns and just practicing getting my stitches even.  My MIL mailed me a REALLY easy double-thick hotpad pattern and I cranked one out the other day.  I might use this to destash all the acrylic yarn that I really don't like but can't bring myself to get rid of.



Tahdah!

Yeah, I know, not impressive.  But done.  That's what matters, right?

Here's the pattern if anyone wants an easy stashbuster:  http://www.mielkesfarm.com/diagonal_hotpad.htm

littlebiskit!  Your potholder is pretty cool!  I like that it's extra thick.  I'm trying to learn crochet, too, and I really like that there are photos in the pattern link.  Will definitely have to try this pattern out.

You can never have too many hotpad patterns.  Smiley  Thanks!

I've actually made a ton of things from my stash so far this month.  They're almost all for swaps though, so no pics yet.  I posted a charity baby blanket in the Colour-a-long thread that was made with some random baby acrylic that must be at least 20 years old.  Destashing at its finest!   Grin   Haven't gotten to my bathmat yet though, too busy swapping.

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

I like the potholder. Double thick sounds good because I always end up holding on the hot stuff forever while I try to make room to set it down.
