11 yards of a black double knit - Some garments worked better than others.
5 yards of a green/black print knit - dress & jacket. This is one of my favorite outfits so far
3 yards of a printed knit from A Fabric Place- 2 tops that turned out to be a pleasant suprise. I made Hot patterns 3 Graces cowl neck and a PMB surplice top that I ruched one side of the center panel. I just need to hem the tops and shorten the sleeves on the cowl neck
8 yards used as failed muslins - now trashed. I had to stop myself from trying to reuse the fabric. I had put the used fabric in the trash and then pulled it out. It went back in the trash.
6 yards for testing pants. The crotch fit is not perfect but they will be fine to wear under long tops.
2 1/2 yards modal knit used to make a cardigan and camisole
I was spending way too much time visiting blogs yesterday and I came across a stash busting sewalong at Cation Designs . I figured that this would help to keep me motivated to use up some of this fabric that is occupying way too much space in my house.
Here is my pledge:
I, Towanda, commit to using as many as possible pieces of stash fabric in 2013. I am committing to spend at least 15 minutes in my sewing room 4-5 days a week. I also am committing to not buying any new fabric except for fabric that I need to finish a collection or special one time pieces that I can't easily find again. I will shop my stash before hitting the submit button and ordering fabric.
This is fabric that I am thinking about using for the 2013 SWAP Contest. I started out pre-washing most of this fabric and ended up prewashing 2 big ziploc bags of fabric that are taunting me in my sewing room.
