dharma_rebel- LOVE the T shirt dresses!! I need to figure out how to make some for my dd some! Since I paid like $35 for one on etsy! (I mean it WAS Jimi Hendrix)


the skirt is also super cute!
My friend Nickel and I keep looking at that 1 yard wonders book, but have yet to talk ourselves into shelling out the cash....

I'm a little bit country, and I'm a little bit rock and roll.

Thanks, guys! I was lucky enough that Santa brought me my book. But here is the Amazon link if you wanna check it out: http://www.amazon.com/One-Yard-Wonders-Sewing-Fabric-Projects/dp/1603424490/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1263067066&sr=8-1

princessacademy -  I highly recommend the book. If you check out my list (link in my sig) you'll see that I plan on making a lot of stuff from it. Maybe you and your friend could share the book? Also, check out the blog link for the tut. It is seriously sooooo easy. And if you do it assembly line style, you'll have a bunch of cute dresses quickly!

Nice work everyone.  Looks like everyone is moving right along and everything is coming together well.  Everything is beautiful and everyone has such different ideas and tastes.  i love that.  gives me inspiration.  keep it up
And thanks everyone for the compliments on my previous posts. 
I forgot this year I also made a Marine Corps snuggie for my brother (who is stationed in Ca lol) and unfortunately this did not come from my stash (marine corp fleece very very expensive at least for me $35 for fleece for this on sale at joanns) 
But I love it and hope he does too.  this is me wearing it because i haven't mailed it yet.  just finished this week and too much cold and snow to go out. lol.

And I made my hubby a pair of camo fleece lounging pants *with side pockets that he requested*.  This was made out of scraps left over from army quilt made for sons friend.  Loving the stash busting.  will post pic later of them since i forgot to take lol

yay--projects to cross off your list!

It is always nice to make something for someone who is away from home...a little reminder each day that he is loved...nice job on your brother's throw!

Sometimes, we have to supplement our stash--especially if it is very specific fabric!  Like, who would happen to have Marine Corp fleece on hand...ha ha

T.T I just spent 2.84 on brown fleece to make my dad a platypus. I'm using black fleece from my stash. Didn't buy any thread. (And I only bought the brown because it was on sale. Usually it's like... 4 to 8 dollars for fleece there. Depending on what kind it is.) I feel PRETTY good about it, but it's not really stash busting. It's turning out really cute though. I'll have to show you guys detail on the tail... I'm waffling it with topstitching to give it more detail. Smiley I'm really loving how cute it's turning out. I really wish I could keep it. I'm gonna tell him it's mine though, and see what he says. Smiley

A platypus! What an awesome idea! It's worth the sale fabric and only half stash busting if you ask me. I think I need to add platypus to my own list now . . .

I can't wait to see it!

First all my lovely patterned cottons, the organizer next to it has my solid color cottons, interfacings, and the top bin has scraps.

Very nice. I wish I could get my fabrics to look like that.
