Ok so I started reading the "requirements" for this craft along and then some of the comments about organizing and how to do this and that. 10 pages later, I decided I had better stop reading and just sign up here already lol. I have so much stuff. It's daunting. It's depressing. It needs organizing. Hell, it just needs to get used!
We (4 people) live in a small 800 sq. foot apartment and my half of the entire wall length closet is filled with craft bins of fabric, paper, YARN, beads, candle making and miscellaneous everything. I have a chest of drawers filled with the same. My dresser is covered ontop and so is my sewing machine, the small table it's on and underneath it. HELP!
My goal this year is to only use what I have on hand. For everything. That said, I am giving myself a small allowance of $40 for items like glue sticks, thread, etc. other than that, no dice. Wish me luck! I look forward to awesome crafting time "together"!!

Welcome & good luck Audania1  Grin  Wink

I'm allowing myself to buy things that will enable me to use more of my stash (such as interfacing) but keeping a tally in my signature of how much I actually spend on craft supplies this year. If I can't make it mostly from stash then I'm looking for alternatives that can be made with what I already own  Smiley

I've used up a fair bit of ribbon, cord, and binding in some aprons today, the aprons have been cut for 6 months, I finally started putting them together.

fantastic work on that hat, especially lovely colour!
bananaleg I am not even sure where to start, you have a lots of skill and a lot of heart!
Audania1 I am very much looking forward to seeing what you craft; you have some excellent goals and I wish you all the luck in the world!

I have quite a few crafts which I am in the middle of but I have completed this...



I am hoping a perfect addition to a birthday present for an extroverted wild child social butterfly is a handcrafted jewellery roll/clutch to keep her spiky jewellery from getting lost while adventuring somewhere...because that is exactly what I made her Smiley I am not sure if you can see, but I quilted the already chaotic fabric with a jig saw pattern which I think she will appreciate.

It is lovely, jess!  I like it because it does look chaotic, wild, random--all the things I love! Cheesy

The buttons really add to the fun as well...the orange is a nice pop of color...

wow CLM--you have been busy...I am admiring your "factory" production...I was just thinking last night that I would probably sew more if I had a few projects cut out and ready to go...I think I might try that, but not to the extent you have...like maybe cut out three tops and mark them for sewing...

I was wondering also if any of you question just making stuff just because you have the stash...I saw a cute jeans bucket thing...I have lots of jeans...but then I started thinking about what I would do with it...I realize I make a lot of things like hats and pouches just because I have the stash and not because I am going to use, sell or give the item away...any of you do that or is it just me?

Great jewelery roll, Jesskelly. It looks chaotic in a disciplined way - if that is possible?  Grin
Wauw, Crafty! You have been busy - a whole army of sock monsters-to-be! And your thread rolls - you migth have busted the thread, but now you have a bunch of pretty old rolls - you must make something with them.  (The little red one is the cutest, even if it isn't old  Cheesy).

I know what you mean, Always - I have made to many bags and totes. I strive to be better and only craft something I or someone else will be happy to use. But often something just looks like so much fun, so I start on it even though I have no use for it. But in a way I think it is all right. We are are playing, and it is more about the process than the goal.

oh Taramor--thanks for the reminder...I forget that I craft for the joy of making something...not the end use or product...Cheesy
