Sewing From My Stash

Confession time:  I have a big fabric stash.

Last year, I didn't get around to sewing half of the projects I wanted to yet, I continued to add to my fabric stash. And now it's a big stash. So...

I have one important goal this year, sew from the fabric stash. That's right, I'm putting myself on a fabric fast. I'll allow myself to pick up thread, chalk, buttons or zippers if I haven't found it in my stash but other than the necessities to finish a project that it. No more fabric. Oh, I can't believe I just wrote that, we'll see how that goes.   

Do you have any sewing goals for the new year?  

Happy Sewing!  


  1. I want to sew up any fabric I buy or are given this year in THIS year. Also I do want to reduce my overall fabric stash. Good luck without buying any fabric.

  2. I think I should just ditto Janine's comment... yes I just want to sew my stash and I'm really trying even if there is no evidence of it yet. Good luck not buying any... I find I have to just not go to get anything and therefore I can't be tempted. Unfortunately I just ran out of stretch and ballpoint needles and my son gave me a gift card for Spotlight (Joanne's like shop) so I'll have to be very discerning with my purchases.

  3. I plan to sew more. Procrastinate less. And to get my fabric stash down by half ... ok, 20% LOL 😂 I need room/space.

    Happy New Year ... FIESTA 🎉💥🌟

  4. Same resolution here. Making many pillowcases with one yard pieces. Having a great time!!!

  5. Haha! Welcome to 2017!

    I plan to buy less this year and have set a hard budget for fabric.

    Good luck on your fast!


The Eva Dress by Tessuti

This is my first project using Tessuti patterns and I'm even more impressed with how it turned out than I was when the patterns arrived...
