I need to make reusable grocery bags!  The ones you can get are pretty plain...are you making the ones that can fold up into a pouch?  I have one I got in Japan that I would love to duplicate but I can't seem to find it--maybe when I clean up more!! ha ha

PJ pants...I need some of those too...

I have not made much of a dent in my stash...I am working on WIPS so the stuff piled up is still piled up--I wonder if I should spend a day just cutting everything out first...has that worked for anyone?  Like cutting out four or five things all in one day then sewing? hmmm?

YES!  I highly encourage you to cut out all pieces in one sitting, well, as many as your back and hands can stand!  My mother wholeheartedly supports this as well, that way your back hurts that next day, but it's that ONE day instead of several and you have 4-5 or more projects to show for it that you can sew up assembly-line style Smiley

I've been adding to my list (on pg 23 if you're curious) as I think of them. I'm up to 44, maybe 45. I'm sure it's going to change here in a bit. I'm goin' in folks! I'm heading into the crafting room to get it reorganized. I just did that 2 weeks ago but with clearing out our bedroom to paint it... well, it got all conflabulated again. Sigh.... So, time to reorganize again and then I'll have a better idea of projects I already have stuff for. Most of my 50 items will also be destash projects Smiley

I decided to start on a skirt yesterday, pulled out the fabric, went to get the pattern, can't find it. I swear I saw it a few days ago.... I do have other skirt patterns, but I wanted to use this one with this fabric. Maybe I'll use different fabric with a different pattern today. At least I've made some progress on my knitting.
