I'm now putting together a scrappy pair of pants that hopefully WON'T look scrappy when finished. My boss is a stickler for going outside with the kids no matter what the temperature, which means that when it's -36 I have to wear sweatpants to work. Professional attire isn't super important. Not freezing when outside for 45 minutes is.

I found this peice of primary blue in my stash, perfect for matching all my thousands of shades of blue shirts. Problem is, it was only a little over a metre. I need 2.4 metres to make a pair of pants. So I cut out of the back of the pants in it, then went to the fabric store. I matched blues as closely as I could, and cut the front out of the new stuff. I also didn't have any long lengths of elastic, so I sewed a bunch of short peices together, and the waist is gonna be 3 different stubs.

Trina, thanks for posting the fabric stash photo. Wish mine looked that interesting.  Cheesy

Gala, you must work for the Abominable Snowman. Doesn't she know that it's dangerous to have little kids outside in that kind of temperature, especially for that long? Good luck with the pants project. Looking forward to seeing the finished clothing.

I saw a blog on "How to fold your Stash". Whaat? There's a right way? I have organized and folded my stash...the smaller stuff at least. And then....ooh I can use that swatch and that one and there must be one in here somewhere and ooo I want the one from the bottom. And then I reject half and add more and then....where did all the folding go? And I don't have time to put it all away right now....I'm in the middle of creating here. And wait, there's a deadline for that now.

So I don't fold much any more, but I do try to pile it on the shelf in some sort of color order.

Well this week we're putting away Christmas stuff, so I've got 2 shower curtains that won't work in our new house, but still look good and it's actually 100% quilters cotton, might make them in to "Elf skirts" for delivering our gift bags to TOPS next year.

Those pants sound incredible!  I can't wait to see them...I really don't make much clothing anymore, yet I have loads of fabric for clothing and the supplies...like a reel of waistband elastic...Grin.

I realized when I was making scrappy quilt blocks that I have a fear of using up my fabric stash...I think the thing for me to do is to cut a small piece out of each piece and "save" it...then I won't be afraid to use it for a project because I still have a bit for my own projects...

I wish my fabrics looked that good...I can relate to all of those sentiments, however...especially the "don't remember why I even have this fabric!"...

I was given this neat magnifying glass for Christmas. I didn't want the lens to get all scratched up, but I knew that mostly it would be kept in a drawer, so I decided to make a case for it.



It's ALL stash! Costume vinyl (remnant bin), craft felt (left over), wood button (gift), thread (vintage inherited). YAHOO!

Well, not anything! But it is nice to know that you can take care of certain things if you have the time and access to materials, right?
