It only occurred to me after I'd bought the McCalls hat pattern  Cheesy yet I own sewn gloves in velour and fleece and some slinky ones I bought for a burlesque outfit  Smiley

Paisley gloves = Brilliant!  And even if you lose a little time and fabric, you gain experience.

You could do armwarmers too. That fabric is awesome.

those are worth doing...not a huge destash, though... Sad  great for scraps and fabrics with not a lot of other purposes...I have some silk scarves that I would like to repurpose for those...

Holy banana's! I actually acomplished something today!
Pillow cases:
Their thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422397.msg5013664#msg5013664
Thank you to whom ever posted the pillow case earlier, great inspiration!

Funky pants!

They have a thread to, but really it's just those two pics....  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422395.msg5013656#msg5013656

And I did use a bunch of stash for a swap, so I can't share pics until it get's to where it's going, which hopefully they get there by the end of next week!

I have half of a glove assembled and its not pretty  Sad sewing with a 3mm seam means that my feed dogs keep grabbing the fabric and dragging it into the machine *sigh* I don't know what I can do about it so I'm setting them aside for now and working on turning 10 pairs of my brothers trousers into shorts for him. This will increase my stash as I get to keep the fabric I cut off the bottom of the legs *lol*

K_Star... I've never done this, but I think I've heard this trick before... For tiny seams, put a piece of tissue paper under the fabric, and just rip it out of the stitches after. That may be a royal pain too though...

Inspiration without application is moot.

Yep, this is what I was about to suggest. Or you could use tear away stabilizer designed for machine embroidery. It is much stiffer than the tissue paper.
