Those bags are so cute! I'm sure their teachers loved them.

I have not done any de-stashing of MY stash, but I have knit 4 ruffle scarves out of my mom's stash. It's something.  Smiley

Cute bags!

I used up some more cotton yarn and made a doll. Its Kaylee from Firefly in her Shindig dress!

I bet they were thrilled with their stow and go bags!
And, what a cute Kaylee!

If you do not want to cut the bottom of the kimono off to a shorter length to suit your height, You could try tying and then pulling up through the belt, making it blouson...personally, for a robe, I think it will become a pain to do when you just want to throw it on and go...

I wear a summer kimono as a robe (yukata)...I like them long but not that long...the belt I use is made from the same fabric...long and skinny...

texscrapper--those are fabulous teacher gifts!

I really want to go to Disney World again

Wow it's been quiet on here for a few days! Everyone must be gearing up for summer Cheesy

I love the stow and go bags! Such fun colors, too. Cheesy I'm also loveing the Kaylee doll - awesome crocheting skills.

So I was thinking of doing a Steampunk swap sometime this summer! If you guys think you might be interrested, take a look at the prompt over here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=423909.0   . I, myself, will be using a ton of stash in this.

Have a great week/end everyone!

I've got tons of new stuff in my store!: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MyWyldChild?ref=ss_profile

I'm not dead!  I've gotten next to nothing done on the crafty - deStashing front but a ton of stuff done in real life, so I suppose it's a trade off.  I did manage to have a friend over for a crafternoon, and between the gabbing, youtube videos, and other distractions we even made a few cards.  And I got her to take some of my paper collection, so while not much crafting was done I consider it a successful destash project.  Sort of.

And with the philosophy of pictures or it doesn't count - some of the cards.

I was doing so well using up some of my fabric stash. I was pushing out projects here and there, but I had a setback this week. Fabric.com was having a sale and I placed not one, but two orders ..... Hiding my head in shame .....

I guess I have to get back on the destash wagon.

They are lovely and useful!  I made notecards, too, but I don't think it made much of dent in my stash...

June Themes!

Untitled by Smithsonian Institution, on Flickr

Color:  Orange  
Pattern:  Solids
For:  Yard (or windowsill/balcony/fire-escape for the apartmet dwellers out there)
Challenge 1:  Six month check in!  Has your stash migrated?  Grown?  Shrunk?  Take a look back at your DeStashing resolutions and see how far you've come.  Are your goals still relevant, or do you need to do some tweaking?
Challenge 2: Have any swaps caught your eye recently but you weren't able to join?  Make something for yourself using the same themes.

June already  Shocked

My stash has shrunk and is also much tidier than at the beginning of the year. I'm happy with the progress I've made and the projects I've made with it  Smiley
I doubt I will be doing any garden projects, me and the garden just don't get along  Roll Eyes Orange is one of my favourite colours at the moment, I made an orange skirt last month and have some of the fabric left over.
I've been remiss at adding pics here but I assure you all my recent projects have all been from stash and I still haven't spent more than 6 on supplies of any kind this year - YAY!
