So far my destashing includes...
~1 skein of yarn by making dishcloths
~Some fabric scraps for Blythe clothes
~Got rid of a small box of fabric scraps
~Gallon sized ziplock bag of faux fur making stuffies

All of which are for swaps. I'll post pictures later.

Remember with handsewing you need to finish your seems the same way you would with machine sewn. Flat feld and french seams give a professional look and high quality. Loning also prevent frayed edges by encasing them. You can also use a blanket stitch, where you would normally use overlock. (use in addition to backstitch or running stitch) Backstitch makes seams stronger, but I often use a running stitch. Press as you go and you will have a quality garment or item. I prefer button holes by hand, cut first then bind with button stitch. Zippers are the one thing I hate doing by hand. Luckily, I normaly sew sca garb, no zippers.

I am using my hoard for swap items. Seems I am having alot of fails so using even more stash.

I like using double folded hems...looks neat, and you only have to stitch it once...french seams you have to stitch twice, which can take a long time by hand.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.

I finally went in and cleaned up the fabric in the closet, at least - threw away a lot of scraps and organized the rest. In the process, I found two hoodie "shells" I sewed that need to be lined, as well as cut out pieces for another hoodie. I've yet to find where my mom stashed all the apron pieces I cut... hmmm.

On the to-do list is to make a couple swimsuit wraps for when I go away with my boyfriend next month! Smiley

I haven't done any more destashing lately. Time has been consumed with organizing and cleaning and getting ready for the new wee one.

Buuut since I am only doing swaps from my stash this year, I do have some to do things for this weekend because I have a send out Tuesday:

-Two stuffed ninjas for the winter baby/kiddo birthday swap
-10 number beanbags for the winter baby/kiddo birthday swap

I've only managed to de-stash a few small tings.  But we got the shelf in my sewing room that had come crashing down last week, back up on the wall, so I can atleast put the things that have been laying around back up, so it LOOKS like i have de-stashed more then I have....
