I have been crafting away but forgetting to take pics!

Here is a beach bag I made for our upcoming vacation Smiley - 1 yard of fabric put to good use!

Hmmm...those August themes sound good.  Of course, so did the July ones.  I got out a piece of red gingham when I read those, thinking it would be fun to make something from it.  And did I?  Nope.  I keep on looking at my stash, thinking I'd like to make all kinds of things.  But half of them don't serve a purpose.  And if the thing I make just sits around looking cute, then how is that any better than just sitting around as stash?  But I really need to use my stash!  It's like a vicious cycle.  Argh!

Gaudi, those cards are so nice. Imagine getting something like that in the mail or with a gift? Just gorgeous.
Bananaleg, I love the idea of a homemade bath poof! You're supposed to throw out those store bought ones after a few weeks (did you know that? I was so unhappy when I read that on the tag Sad) but yours can be put into the laundry! Yay for reusable!
Texscrapper love the bag, are the handles rope? How ever did you attach them?

I'm finally finished this batch of monsters but there are way too many to post in here. Over 30! I'm so glad I'm DONE! I did have to buy another bag of stuffing and there's some left which of course means another project but that's ok 'cause I caved and bought 2 pairs of sock monkey socks, lol. I just couldn't resist. I have such a weakness for socks Tongue.
I want to show you SO BADLY but I'm gonna hold off on posting for the cross category challenge so wish me luck! I do have one finished thing, got a bunch of these but only managed to put a button on one so far, ha.

craftylittlemonkey - The handles are rope. I just sewed them in between the lining and bag like regular handles. Then I topstitched 5 rows of stitching on the top of the bag for added support Smiley

Dulcet -- have you thought about making charity projects?  I'm in the same boat with a lot of my crafting.  I pulled out my bin of scrap yarn last night and started working on a granny square blanket for the Snuggles Project.  I'm going to try using up my pink baby yarn for some items for Newborns In Need, Inc.  The S.P.E.W. Craftalong has a lot of great ideas!

I love the SPEW craftalong for charity...I have used up quite a bit of my yarn stash on projects and am working on whittling down my fabric stash...QFK is a fun one for me...so are the pillowcase projects...

I love to make things but I can't keep it all or else I would have to buy another house! Grin

Sorry for the whiny post before.  Hope I didn't bring anybody down.  I decided to just jump in and finish a project that I've had supplies for sitting around for too long.  And while I was working on it, I decided it could probably work for a Christmas present for my niece.  (I'll post when it's finished.)  And thinking of Christmas reminded me that our local library collects gloves and hats  for the homeless in December.  That would be perfect for digging into my yarn.  I'll have to check out SPEW, too.  You guys are good for me.

Smiley  Glad you got some inspiration, dulcet!  I am in the same boat of wanting to use up my stash but not have a ton of "stuff" laying around.  Whatever hubs and I can't fit into four suitcases has to be shipped or left behind come October 9th, so unless it's baby boy things I'm really getting picky about what we keep.  Charity projects seemed perfect since I've already given family tons of crocheted gifts.

And speaking of stash...well, I thought I had a handle on what supplies I had and what should be done with them.  BUT, while searching under my bed for a lost shoe I discovered a box and a huge duffel bag full of supplies.  One is yarn and fabric and the other is about 40-50 pounds of unused plastic grocery bags.  DH used to work at Wal-Mart and brought me the box because it was "damaged" in some way or another and they were going to throw it out.  I used some to make plarn tote bags, but that was when I had an Etsy...

Anybody want a plarn tote bag?   Grin

For a second I thought plarn was a typo but you spelled it like that twice so I had to go and look it up Cheesy.

Got a few things done but no pics yet. Just another water bottle cosy from felted sweater scraps (they just never seem to end!). I thought I should finally make one for myself, lol. I am always last on the list Tongue.
