When I look in my cupboards there is alot of fabric that I never seem to use so I thought it was about time to get it off the shelf and made into something fun and useful. I often buy fat quarters just because I like them, no plan or anything. I just think I'll use that some day. well yesterday while I was looking for something else I found this pretty fabric that I bought almost 2 years ago.
It was one of those "this is so cute fabric I just have to have" purchases, then it sat there for way too long, it was only one fat quarter so while I was ironing it I thought it would make a great zippy pouch. It was slightly too big for one pouch so I cut out a 2 large rectangles then used the smaller two pieces for a smaller pouch. They were fun and very quick to make.
I belong to swap group on Instram and each month you need to send a small gift to your partner so I made these pretty lavender bags from my Liberty stash, they smell so good.
I also worked on a few christmas gifts using my stash, It feels really good to be using fabric that has just sat there for quite some time.
I plan on making these two blocks into mini quilts, I had good intentions to make this quilt which is a freebie from the fat quarter shop, but after 3 blocks I lost interest. I have way too many projects on the go so I thought it was time to move on and work on something else.
So its been a very productive "sew my stash" kind of weekend. If you dig deep enough into your cupboard you may find a few fabrics you forgot you had like I did.
