1  Re: 2018 Annual DeStashAlong Thread in Craftalongs by TheMistressT on: January 17, 2018 05:52:55 AM


We have a not-to-our-taste built-in bookshelf in our guest room - it came with the house. We kept it because we can get 10-15% of our books onto it, so until we can move my craft lab/sewing studio to one of the outbuildings and turn the other bedroom into a library we accept it. However, I noticed about a week and a half ago that it was sagging. UH OH! I took all the books & decorative items out and shored it up (and tidied it up) using stash! Left over "brick mould" moulding from reframing our front door, left over shoe moulding from installing our kitchen island, fabric bought w/o a project in mind, left over fusible interfacing, polypropylene, screws, nails, varnish, paint, and eyelets all from stash! In order to accomplish the project as it grew I did end up buying some quarter round moulding and a tension rod (all my stashed ones were too long), but as of now the project is under $10! I'm not quite done and may end up purchasing a larger backer if I can't convince myself to make one in pieces or out of some other material. I also might need more interfacing, but maybe not.

What fun the squashed bookmarks are!

That Batbag is super cute! Just like the story behind it.  Grin

I'm going to have a look at the resin video a little later!

I've been plugging away at a dumb-sized stash busting project, making a bunch of fabric gift bags. Like A BUNCH. Here a few of many. Like MANY.  Tongue

I'm not a big fan of the usual way to sew binding on, I prefer this (skip to step 2): http://mysweetprairie.blogspot.ca/p/binding-1-2-3.html
It just seems so much more logical and easier to keep straight and even. Less fussiness when making the tape too. And I LOVE the wonder clips instead of pins, I ordered a bunch from aliexpress for pretty cheap so now I've got enough to go round even a larger quilt.

This is the method I have used! But my scrappy bias tape is still not pressed for quilt binding, just the standard single-fold bias tape as shown in this image that I "borrowed" from the interwebs.  Wink



We got those clips for my MIL for xmas (using a 60% coupon at JoAnn) and I think I may be using one of my 50% to get some for me in the near future!

Audio, you are the Cricut Master! Wow. I really, REALLY need to dig my up and figure it out. Sooooo much cool stuff can be made with these cutting machines!

YEY Year of the Dog! It's my year, too. I made it by just 4 days! I made this "meme" thingy for Delia's figure skating outfit for funsies! (not counting as a craft, of course)

Ripping seams in knits is THE WORST! Especially if you're using thread that matches your fabric. UGH!

I made a quick little drawstring bag from some chainmaille print knit today to store the accessories for my new soda siphon. All stash!

Thru together a little drawstring sack using this chainmaillle print knit remnant from a project this summer! I had the spring-y hardware and the ribbon on hand, too. Didn't even have to cut the ribbon! It's to store accessories for the soda siphon I got for xmas.

7  Faux Chainmaille Drawstring Sack in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by TheMistressT on: January 09, 2018 03:15:19 PM
I got a soda siphon for xmas and wanted to keep all the stuff that goes with it together, so I made a little sack from scrap to hold it all!



I used this fun chainmaille print knit, put a gusset in the bottom, added a buttonhole for the drawstring. Fun!

I wish Ginger were alive - I would SO beg you to make her one too - they could be two brindled beauties.... as for the hat, well, if she went for the hat, then I think she needs a vintage Bathing Beauty outfit including the little swimming hat!

My goodness that would be a great costume! My Betty would've worn that for sure.

Thanks for the lovins!

Well, it's not so much a stash buster, per se, but it is made entirely from stash: Figure Skating Dog outfit!

I just love these virus shawls! I'm not a shawl person, but these are undeniably lovely.

Well, I started a spontaneously inspired project last night and finished it this morning! Inspired by Delia sometimes skittering across the "field of play" during daily fetch sessions lately, I decided she would benefit from figure skating lessons and so made her the appropriate outfit!



This get-up has it's own post with TOO MANY PHOTOS in the Home Sweet Home: Pet projects board.
