I've been using stash for two swaps I'm in and it did eat up a LOT of yarn; as well as using my cotton yarn stash for water bottle holder end-of-the-school-year gifts for my girls' teachers.

I have to say, as much as I like to buy yarn, with all that I have at the moment, it does feel better to use up what I have.

I enjoy sewing costumes for my girls' ballet studio, but I am sooo glad it's done!  Of course, I was still sewing an hour before the performance.  And I did use some of my stash.  All of the visible layers of Snow White's costume were from stash.  (There was also a lace layer on top of a classical/pancake tutu that she changed into before the prince kissed her--no photo.)



And the black jacquard that I finally settled on for the Evil Queen's bodice.



There were also two pageboys with tam O'shanters and pantaloons made from a burgundy crepe-backed satin from my stash.  But no pictures of those.  I was so busy in the back with costume changes and then putting away that I didn't get the chance to take pictures of many dancers.  And I made several more costumes, but they were from new materials or studio stash.

Now I need to reorganize my sewing bench because I didn't put anything away properly for the last two months or so.  And then I can get back to finishing my UFOs and other fun stash-busting.

Holy cow I am loving all of the note cards!! I am especially digging the little owl ones Smiley I may have to steal that idea for my kiddos teacher as a thank you note. Just so cute.

And those ballet costumes are fantastic! I wish I had the nerve to attempt a boddice....

And I've been slowly destashing. I had a baby shower to go to today and started the projects for it last night. Sheesh. And while I had to buy the onesies, at least I used a coupon for the trhree pack and only spent $2.50 on them. The fabric, thread, interfacing, buttons and fiber were all from my stash though so yay!!!

Here are my gentlemen's onesies:


and my favorite, the pirate ship!

And I also made a little stegasaurus to match the first onesie. And, let me tell you, sewing with knits is tough!! I don't know how you ladies do it so it doesn't stinking stretch and pucker. Holy cow.
Also, all four of his legs are the same length, I just had him propped up funny.


On the check up front, I'm doing pretty good. I have definitely used my stash. There is less there, but still a LONG way to go. I've given myself $20 for the whole year and I am also doing good with that. i think I've only spent $7, so doing nicely.
I've got three more projects I'm working on. One is using up a good bit of some fabric I've had forever and it's also one of those projects I started a while ago and left by the wayside. The other two won't use up a ton of stash, but still, everything in them is from stash.  Wink

Oh, those are so beautiful!  I am really impressed!  Ballet costumes have to be really difficult.

Your doily is simply beautiful...

dulcet--your costume work is impeccable!  The bodices fit perfectly! And I just love what you did with the Wicked Queen one...beautiful work!

ha--those are really cute onsies!  I love the pirate ship one!

I also love the color orange!  It might be the perfect time to make that dreaded baby pumpkin hat...I know my niece wants it, but I can't stand the thought of making it...Cheesy

I feel like I have cleaned out a bunch of stuff in general...so it feels like I have more room to store my actually crafting stash...I pretty much quit buying kimono fabrics because I have enough to make a bunch of projects for a very long time! Cheesy

I can't seem to stop buying fabrics that I know I will use: black, linen, muslin, etc.  I just like having it on hand...I have stopped buying cute prints just because...there will always be cute prints, so if I need something very particular, I can buy it then...I still have enough in my stash to shop my own stash! Cheesy

Yarn--forget it...I give up...I am always going to have yarn...but I have pretty much stopped buying random stuff on sale...I have a notebook with all of my current stash listed so I am trying hard to shop from this list as well...sock yarn is my current downfall! Cheesy

I like the idea of a list of what you have.
