Dulcet- if you re-attach all the circles then lay it on a backing you can do a straight stitch through rows of circles. The yo-yos will be recognizable, re-enforced on the backing will keep them together, and it will have a little texture.

I whipped up a few "stow & go" reuseable bags for part of my boys Teacher Appreciation gifts this week.

Those bags are so cute! I'm sure their teachers loved them.

I have not done any de-stashing of MY stash, but I have knit 4 ruffle scarves out of my mom's stash. It's something.  Smiley

Cute bags!

I used up some more cotton yarn and made a doll. Its Kaylee from Firefly in her Shindig dress!

Oh, I love that patchy skirt!
What an adorable dolly!
Those bags are wonderful, I love colourful stuff.

Pics soon, I've been on a serious crafting binge this past few days. Unbelievable volume of stuff created, I'm exhausted but so satisfied.

I have a bin of ribbing, multiple colours, up for grabs ,if you have a suggestion about where to donate it please let me know and if you could make use of it please send me a private message Wink. I was using it for the necklines of tshirt bibs but don't think I'm going to make any more of those. They are a bit labour intensive and don't exactly sell like hotcakes so I'm giving that one up.

Also, I need a belt for a gorgeous antique kimono a friend brought back from Japan for me. It's SERIOUSLY LONG! LOL! Anybody know how to make an easy to use version, something that I can throw on without too much fuss so I can wear that thing as an actual robe? Or know a way to alter this thing so it isn't taller than I am, ha! If anybody will know it's you girls Cheesy. Thanks!

If you do not want to cut the bottom of the kimono off to a shorter length to suit your height, You could try tying and then pulling up through the belt, making it blouson...personall y, for a robe, I think it will become a pain to do when you just want to throw it on and go...

I wear a summer kimono as a robe (yukata)...I like them long but not that long...the belt I use is made from the same fabric...long and skinny...

texscrapper--those are fabulous teacher gifts!

Wow it's been quiet on here for a few days! Everyone must be gearing up for summer Cheesy

I love the stow and go bags! Such fun colors, too. Cheesy I'm also loveing the Kaylee doll - awesome crocheting skills.


So I was thinking of doing a Steampunk swap sometime this summer! If you guys think you might be interrested, take a look at the prompt over here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423909.0   . I, myself, will be using a ton of stash in this.

Have a great week/end everyone!

I'm not dead!  I've gotten next to nothing done on the crafty - deStashing front but a ton of stuff done in real life, so I suppose it's a trade off.  I did manage to have a friend over for a crafternoon, and between the gabbing, youtube videos, and other distractions we even made a few cards.  And I got her to take some of my paper collection, so while not much crafting was done I consider it a successful destash project.  Sort of.

And with the philosophy of pictures or it doesn't count - some of the cards.

I was doing so well using up some of my fabric stash. I was pushing out projects here and there, but I had a setback this week. Fabric.com was having a sale and I placed not one, but two orders ..... Hiding my head in shame .....

I guess I have to get back on the destash wagon.
