Thanks - the burlap wasn't too bad - I did estimate my cuts and sew as straight as possible on thi one. I just made another one today for a friend and it was less wonky Smiley I think I just needed to practice!

Love the journals, hats, and burlap bags.

Just one note about adhesive, from the conversation on the last page... I love rubber cement for paper crafts, but occasionally find it doesn't hold up well over time (as in a year later things might start to fall off) but that could just be the brand I used or shoddy rubber cementing techniques on my part.

And my own contribution to the de-stashing efforts - two argyle pillowcases.  They're identical, so I only bothered to take a picture of one.

Lovely pillowcases  Smiley

I've just realised I've mostly met the months challenges  Grin

March
Color:  green hats!
Pattern:  flowers even though they are just little flowers on the hats  Wink
For:  yourself - umm nothing for me yet
Challenge 1:  What can I do with this?  What /is/ this?  Why was I saving this?  These are all questions you may have asked yourself over the past two months.  If you've come across stash that you can't quite figure the best use for, post a picture here and ask.  Who knows what another pair of eyes (or two) can come up with!? Pastel yarns that I have NO IDEA where they came from as I don't buy pastel yarn Undecided
Challenge 2: Any brave souls want to join me for a month long craft supply diet?  It's totally optional, and you get to choose how strict you want to be... (*runs for cover*)
and I'm on a semi-permanent supply diet
 Wink

Finally completed a skirt from all stash, including elastic and thread!  It was a nice square piece, so I essentially just cut the whole thing into strips, then sewed them together as needed to make the tiers, using the whole thing up.



This is actually it folded in half, because it is really wide spread all the way out.  The topstitching made the seams go a little wonky, but I'm hoping with a couple washes and presses it'll calm down a little bit, and I'm just glad to have completed something!

I also have unintentionally followed the supply diet this month, and I don't see any reason not to see the month out!

texscrapper, I'm impressed with the burlap. I tried to work with it one time and it was a horrible diaster.

The burlap bags is great! it's awesome!
Pillow cases!  I should make a ton of fun ones from all the single yards of fabric in my closet.  At least then 1) my craft room closet would have more space 2) I can throw out all the oddly smelling pillow cases we've had kicking around for years and replace them with much more fun pillow cases!
That skirt is pretty!  I want to make myself skirts this year.  I keep meaning to....

I have about 10 seconds left on the library computer but here are the latest and the last monsters for the library display, whew! So glad to be finished! Stitching on all that hair last night gave me achey fingers, ouch.

I cut out 2 pairs of pants(kids) and 4 pillow cases. Was going to sew them this weekend, but I guess we are road tripping instead. But I will sew once we get home. It did use up 3 whole chunks of fabric. (Partial yards) and put a dent in three others. If the pants fit, I will make a few more pairs for my daughter, or her friends. That would be a lot of the same pants for one girl lol
