Yay destashing!  I'm totally in!

I made this scarf for my aunt for Christmas.  The pattern is from Interweave Crochet's fall 2009 issue.  She was quite pleased with it.

I have also made the glitter ornaments using diluted ink and clear/white glitter.  I have some more of them to make up, and I will post some photos when I do.

I have been crocheting a bag today using t-shirt yarn.  I hope to have it done by the end of the weekend to be able to post it.

Great projects so far!

My first completed project of the new year was a Tote Bag Rescue using entirely stashed materials.
You see, I have this non-desrcript tote that is perfect for lugging my needs around two jobs --[...]
Not the snazziest of De-stash Projects, but ridiculously satisfying!   Wink

i actually really like the tote that you rescued... it's a great color and super-useful shape!  it would have been a pity to lose it.

PS: i think i should probably join this c-a-l

creative criticism always appreciated!

wow--lots of destashing going on!

love the black crochet scarf!!  Looks so elegant!

Saw the ladybug beret earlier and loved it!  Plus the beadwork was gorgeous!

cute apron from a bedsheet!  the little flowers on the hem really add to it

I have never used glue on my fabric flowers...I just sew them all together to form a ring...might have to try a few your way pizzacravings!

I am working on using up 7 balls of yarn...each a different project..hope to post in a few days here as they are not part of my 50 projects list... Cheesy

You guys are on fire!
My stash (mostly sewing stuff- fabrics and notions) will take several years to finish but I'm going to take a whack at it this year. I haven't made anything so far this year. I have not been well since the year began. I look forward to seeing what we all will be churning out from our stashes!

I've been sort of quietly following this thread as I work on some projects from my stash.  I've cast on a scarf for my mom from stash (it'll be a christmas present for this coming year) and I'm about 70% of the way finished:

.. and I managed to finally give myself a present!  I cast this on right after the holidays and JUST finished (like within the hour).  I need to block it still, but I love it:

I very rarely make anything for me and I've had this sock yarn for awhile and it was a shame to just leave it sitting in my stash.  Now, it's got a new life!

I will definitely be trying the glitter in the ornaments, I never thought about putting stuff in them and I always buy them on clearance so I have tons, lol.

If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead.

I'm with you, I rarely make stuff for myself either. But I think I am going to have to move myself up on the priority list. I really love that second scarf. It looks perfect for those kindof chilly days.

I have to admit, I haven't done one tiny bit of destashing yet. I think I am getting in my own way. When I get free time, I am cleaning instead of crafting. I don't want to live in a pigsty, but I also need to realize other people in the house know how to clean. So today, my mission is pick a project and at least get a start on it. Wish me luck!

Inspired by everyone elses destashing (although all the wool projects are distracting me from my task by making me want to buy wool!); I've finally (almost) completed my first destashing project.  An imperfect but practical needle roll.  The fabric was stashed and I only rediscovered it this morning.  So its a victory in that I've used some of it up and completed one of my planned projects, but a failure in that I discovered loads more fabric that needs using.  I still need to affix the ribbon to it so I can keep it closed.

Looking forward to seeing more of (and being inspired by) your stash busting.

I'm officially joining the conversation, and even keeping the new posts on my Favourites tab. Cheesy

To start with, where I'm at:
- currently burned out by swapping, but not crafting - or Craftster (note to any STS'ers - I'm finishing the month!)
- recently organized the craft space by mandatory decree of our "house stagers" for our house being listed - killed me, but it's freeing
- have a big list of plans that never get done - maybe now with less other craft supplies/distractions?

How I fared with organization:
FREECYCLED/OTHERWISE GIVEN AWAY - 2 garbage bags full, plus a flower press
IN STORAGE - 2 garbage bags full, plus one box
INTO THE TRASH - 1.5 garbage bags; basically all actually trash that I was planning to repurpose. . . for years
- 1 large suitcase with: a big bag of crafter's acrylics; paper, ephemera, and scrapbooking supplies; cotton batting; glues; and a few assorted essential odds & ends
- 1 long plastic underbed container with: my favourite patterned fabric, one solid fabric chosen from each colour group, felt, sewing notions, embroidery items, and planned projects
- my jewellery/beading tackle boxes
- my candle making tin (I wanted to stick it in storage, but sister insisted)

My Plans: Crafts I Want to Do Or Have Been Meaning to Get Done
- Purses from clothes: 80s Pleated Clutch; African Tote; Little Mermaid Shopping Bag; Cowboy Buckle Bag; Houndstooth Hobo; Nirvana Bag (Mini Tote?)
- Vintage purses with stencil prints: Yellow Purse; Grey Bag (figure out prints)
- Repair my own Clothing their ranks are adding up
- University Scrapbook Pages
- Travel Scrapbook Pages
- Jewellery For Me: Sewing Machine Pendant Necklace....
