oh my gosh! CLM you are a crafting stash busting crazy person!!! I am in awe of those skills. I've been busting stash, but it's all been on small projects  Undecided. I am starting one, though, that will use up a sizeable amount of my poly filler and fabric. Yay! Your doggy looks adorable!

It's been ages since I've posted on here but everyone's stuff looks wonderful! I'm in love with the bags and all the crocheted goodies! And since I've finally started going back to the gym, I feel like I need a water bottle cozy....

Love the doggies!! Love the idea of hiding them; I work in a library too - neat idea!

Since recently moving in with my boyfriend, I have finally made the effort to tackle my fabric stash. I bought some of those comic book backer boards and wrapped up all my fabric into those beautiful little mini-bolts you see all over Pinterest... feels so good!!! Going through everything really helped me see what all I've got - and realized how much of it I NEVER use. Now I just need a shelf to put them on...

I did pull out the last remaining scraps of my favorite fabrics for a few stash-busting projects.

A cover for my sewing machine. About time... tried to make one 2 years ago and miscalculated horribly, it was way too small. Now it seems I overcompensated and it's a bit too big. I figure if I ever get a bigger machine it'll still fit! Smiley


A zipper pouch for my zills (finger cymbals for bellydance), with a little bead embroidery practice.




In a couple of weeks, we're having a staff craft supply swap at work! Definitely going to get rid of some of that stuff I've had forever and get some fresh materials in - but not too much of course! Smiley

K_Starr -- That's got to be frustrating.  But at least starting over is better than just finishing it to get it done and not really liking the end product.  Good luck.

It's a bit sad Dulcet to be honest because I quite enjoy the doing it whether it actually becomes a finished item or not   Huh but I DO need some sort of cover-up to go over my summer tops and dresses and I feel like buying something is giving in  Roll Eyes

LOVE that doggie CLM  Grin

Nice use of stash...

I wrapped my fabrics this year, too, and am so glad I did...it has been a struggle to keep up, though, as I tend to want to get very messy again and pull everything out of the bins...

I have been very good about cutting my scraps or tossing them on a regular basis...but I still have to work on not buying when I feel stressed...which is a lot! Grin  I justify that it is better than eating under stress as making stuff is healthier, right?

Mostly for swaps, mostly....Grin

CLM, that little dog is so cute! 

SenatorOrgana, I love the zipper pouch -- great color set Smiley

I started out the month crafting like crazy, but we've had a bit of a heat spell and now I don't want to do anything but sit around.  And Baby Boy has decided that he likes using my lungs as his pillows  Huh

But I've got almost a day's worth of newborn/small cloth diapers finished and a bunch of stash used.  I love the bug print fabric; I was sad to see I only had one fat quarter of it and the diaper used most of it. 





I also finished a 14x14" granny square for the Snuggles Project, got started on a larger one, and cut/pinned some jersey knit I found for a maxi dress.  Btw, I hate working with that stuff  Undecided
