Is it too late for me to join in?

YES YES YES--there is plenty of time to destash!!  Join in the fun and as an added bonus, I personally have been saving some money by being forced to use what I have!!!

Thank you, dannispring240! I think I have a K hook around the house somewhere. This is something that is do-able that I can hopefully make and use before the warm weather gets here. If not, I can put it on the hanger with one of my winter coats and be good to go for next fall.  Cool

While looking for small A.D.D. friendly craft projects, these cute fall leaves came up in an image search I did this morning. I don't have a whole lot of green yarns I don't have plans for, but I do have the fall colors to make these leaves as intended. But what I was thinking would be cool is to make a garland in spring greens that is long enough to drape over a window. The pattern is for loose leaves to set on a table top, but figuring out how to make a garland of them should not be too hard. I'm pretty sure I don't have what I need to do that, but if you are as sick of winter as I am, and have green yarn scraps, you can turn them into greenery. Smiley

I can relate to the memories inanimate objects inspire, and fabric is no exception.
I have now filled the entire back seat of my car with fabrics to give away, and binned two garbage bags of scraps too small to bother with, unless I had another lifetime to use them all in.
I will be posting a before and after pic of my craft room later, the first one where you had to leave a trail of bread crumbs to find your way out, and a second one where I have floor!
Woohoo!
I have rediscovered so many things I had forgotten I had.

I am having anxiey attacks over boxing up the giveaways! I told hubby to seal them so when I get home, I can put on the addresses and mail them out tomorrow...but, I do like that my craft room is a bit roomier and does not seem as cluttered!!

I am getting the carpet removed in the spring and having the wood floors underneath redone, so I have to purge out a lot of stuff before them (or find a cheap storage facility!!)...I also got rid of a lot of duplicate papers...

Destashing is stressful...at least for today!  Grin

I have finished some projects, but I couldn't take pictures some of them because I need someone to take pictures of me wearing them. But here's two.

I made a shirt for my friend's son. I had to buy the zipper and welt, but they were used and not added to my stash.


And a bib for her daughter. This is one of the bibs my mom had cut almost 20 years ago and which I told you about few pages ago.


Then the bad news. I have this much fabric left. And some more at school.


My yarn stash isn't so bad, and the boxes can be closed easily now even if my stash has grown with two balls I got from swaps.

Awesome shirt heini! I like that a lot! Tongue I have a few things to post, but I'm waiting for pics to upload. I have 16 pictures, but I'm going to cut it down by at LEAST half.

That sounds good always. (Definitely not the anxiety, but the floors.) You'll have a lot less to clean in there. (Wood is better for getting rid of tiny scraps and threads and such.) Tongue

Okay, these are a few of the projects I've done or almost done out of my stash so far.

This is a tote bag I made for ageddert from the 50 projects craftalong. She traded me some fuzzy fabric, and I crocheted her a hat and a cat toy too. She said she liked turtles, and I had gotten this awesome fabric from alwaysinmyroom.


The lining (the handles are different colored.) Has a pink ribbon to tie both sides together.


These are a pair of slippers I made using the pattern posted in the crochet board... they were colorful and striped... I made these out of grey, and altered the pattern all the way up to the ankle and made an actual heel part instead of just sewing the two sides together.


These are a pair I am in the middle of making. I just need to make the cuff on the other slipper. I honestly should have been long done with them... but I'll be posting the finished pictures in the crochet board, and linking to them as one of my 50 I think.


Side view.


Just made this today. TOTAL pick me up. I was down and out, so I decided to make a zip pouch when I saw the material. Also from alwaysinmyroom. Smiley I also destashed a teal colored zipper I thought I was either NEVER going to use or going to have to make something CRAZY colored to use it. Turns out it's PERFECT.


I'm so excited to use this today. Don't know what I'm going to put in it, but I'm gonna find something.


I stitched along the seam a little bit. It secures the zipper facing down instead of poking out like it wants to. Smiley


Not massively amazing like some of you have been pushing out, but it's something. Right?

shhh--don't be telling everyone that the way I am destashing is sending it to you guys! Wink

I love that shape bag...have not tried it yet!  Very cute--it would make a great bag to carry toiletries!  I love the tal zipper...I was lame and used white in my project--the teal adds a bit of punch!

The tote turned out cute as well...I had that turtle fabric forever and in a short time, you made it into something fabulous...I have no imagination...

I like the high slippers--the short ones always seem to slide off of me!

Keep on destashing... (and so will I Wink )

I'm not destashing the clothing fabric, because I really don't have much that's suitable for clothes. Just old left-over decorating stuff. And the world's largest stash of rip-stop nylon. But, that stuff needs to be made into a cash-producing inventory. Then, maybe, I'll have
money to buy the white and lavender and french blue silks I'm dreaming of!
