2018 DeStash-Along


craft room 027 by Cheryl  Jaeger, on Flickr

Whether we measure the volume by the bin, basket, cupboard, closet, or room, stashes are an integral part of every crafter's life.  They provide inspiration for our next project and let us to give in to late night crafting urges without running to the store.  Or they just allow us to sleep in our beds at night secure in the knowledge that when the Zombie Apocalypse comes we will have enough yarn, sequins, and glitter glue to see us through.

It isn't a question of "do you have a stash?" but "do you want to make the most of your stash?"

Stashes are amazing things to have, but they are even more fun to use.  Join us on a year-long crafting spree through your stash!  All crafts and materials are welcome.  Motivations for participation may vary and we are very Stash Positive space  We post monthly themes and challenges to help kick-start your creativity, but don't feel yourself bound by them.  This is a place to talk with your fellow supply enthusiasts and show off projects made with your carefully curated hoard stash.

Join any time!

We've been going strong since 2009.  Take a look at our past DeStash Alongs for more information and inspiration:

Hi Guys - Long time no see!  I obviously haven't been very active here (or craftster in general) this year.  So, I have a couple of questions:

-Is anyone interested in taking over the DeStash-Along next year?  If not I can probably set enough calendar reminders to make it through, but if the idea of being in charge makes someone giddy with excitement I will gladly pass over the reins. 

-On a related note, if we still think challenges and prompts are useful tools to prod our destashing efforts, could you please send me some suggestions via PM?

And so there's something actually craft related on this post, here's a tiny doll dress made out of scrap quilt binding.

Project Name: Christmas Sundress
Project Page Link: Made with this pattern.
Brief Description: My craft room is currently lacking in furniture - not quite a junk room, but definitely not organized.  I pulled this fabric out of the bottom of the pile of Christmas stash.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Halloween Dress
Brief Description: Not exactly red, but it does have a belt... sash... thing.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blue Posies Dress for Pukifee
Brief Description: I always find the blue & white color combo very soothing.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - June
House: Hufflepuff

Brief Description: The fabric for this dress transformed from a strip of quilt binding into a rather wild little dress.

Purple Posies by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - August
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Littlefee Independence Day Dress

Brief Description: This dress had been in the planning stages forever.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Morocco

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: PukiPuki Dress

231 I Did It! by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Fireworks Dress
Brief Description: Well, there are many knots tying off the handsewing in this dress, but really it transforms what was originally a quilt binding into a doll dress.  The width was just wide enough to get a skirt out of it.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Batik Bulls Eye Dress
Brief Description: Like the bubbles rising in your butterbeer...



Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Halloween Stripe Dress
Brief Description: Like last year, this year's batch of halloween dresses contains colors from every Hogwarts house - orangey gold for Gryffindor, black for Hufflepuff, green for Slytherin, and if you squint just right you can pretend the purple is a bit bluish for Ravenclaw.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: August Posies Dress
Brief Description: I love crafting with vintage fabric.  I've been able to find a lot of it in the stashes of older relatives, but that source is slowly dwindling.  So that makes what scraps I have even more precious.


234 Sunshine on a Cloudy Day by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Littlefee Autumn Dress
Brief Description: Button!



Well, there you have it!  An entire semester's worth of work crammed into one post.  Sorry!

With the weather turning cold in the Northern Hemisphere, most in the wizarding world prefer to hang up their brooms for the season.  Since you'll be spending more time indoors, please craft something to increase your enjoyment of hearth & home.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Tom Riddle's Diary
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Remembrall
Brief Description: I went a bit rogue for this prompt, going with Diary as a synonym for agenda book rather than as a journal, but the end result is much the same - helping you remember things (either before or after the fact).  I've been trying out the Happy Planner this summer.  I like that it lets me divide my day up into times, a work to-do list, and personal to-do list (plus the stickers are kind of fun).  But the best part is that you can add extra pages so you don't have to carry around an entirely separate notebook for project planning, brainstorming, etc.  I created a handful of dividers for the back of my planner (basically just traced around some existing dividers onto double sided card stock, used tape to try to reinforce the flag portion, and then cut trimmed again) and cut down a pack of graph paper to size.  Not exactly rocket science but rather time consuming when your paper trimmer will only accommodate two sheets at a time.  I already have a section set aside for HPC stuff, so we'll see how this goes.
