First bite out of my stash for 2014, curtains for the baby's room! They are all 12x12 squares, and used up a handful of odds and ends I've had in the stash for years! Almost bought some white yardage for the back, but then I used a bottom sheet that I have been sewing the corners up on for a year or so but keep ripping for the lining.


I gave it its own post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=430530.0#axzz2pJ7EMMnX

Seconded !  Cheesy

Think I will have will have to face my fabric stash - it's not that huge comparted to others but there is so much in there that I just will not use!  I have already de-stashed my yarn (will post pic later) but I think the fabric might have to be next!   Smiley

My first projects for this year are also made from my stash. Yay for being able to cross post. Cotton washcloths, three sets of six. More to come later!

Pretty!  How did you make those? They don't look knit or crocheted.  Are they woven?  I've never seen woven washcloths like that before.

I love the curtains! They're so cheerful. Nice stitching, Kookaloo_Starr and Vampedangel14!

The box of paints was weeded through with my last project, thankfully. The recycling was clean-up from holiday crafting and, weirdly, breast milk storage bottles (I had scores of these since my DS was a NICU kid) I was saving for... something crafty.  Huh Yeah... I just thought of something else that needs to be recycled today.

Thanks for the curtain compliments!
Vampedangel- I am so interested in those washcloths! I read on 50 projects you used a washcloth loom, but I'm still confused! They just look so awesome and pretty, I'd love to understand better!

Those curtains & washclothes are absolutely wonderful! The quilt was a masterpiece! I have finished 2 quilt tops from stash fabric so far. I will cut out #3 & 4 tonight I hope. After those are done, I'll finish them up & donate them.

I was able to knock out two bits of stash!

I re-made a headband that I somehow misplaced between work and my apartment:



And I finished a hat I started a few months ago, but then forgot about due to Christmas crafting:




I also went through one of my craft boxes yesterday and discovered it was half full of memorabilia. Cards, notes, pictures, little things like that. One of my goals for this year (while not technically destashing) is to organize that. I'm going to find something to do with all these precious goodies, instead of hiding them away! I'm thinking about binding some cards together and make a book with some of  the super special ones I don't want ruined.

Thanks for the comments! I have odds and ends left so my next ones will be a mix of all the above colors. Cheesy

You can get a potholder loom at most craft stores. They come with cotton loops, but I've never used them. Here is a video that shows the way that I do it. Very easy and a great way to use up cotton yarn!
