Stash Use It Up Challenge

Post by Jackielou » Mon Feb 04, 2019 7:19 am

I noticed in the daily check in that many of us are trying to use up various craft stashes.

Thought it might be nice if we listed what we have used up this month. Anyone care to join in and get our stashes under some sort of control?

Used some more fabric from my stash to cut out a knit tunic top. Made a slight error, but it can be fixed with a bit of a seam.

Starting to sew everything tomorrow and hopefully will be done in a couple of days.

Almost used up the remainder of a ball of yarn on the prayer shawl and will be adding the final cake (large one) tonight.

Not really a use it up, but I was cleaning and organizing the shelves in the spare room and managed to declutter some unused craft supplies. I have had them for years now and done nothing with them so perhaps someone else will be able to use them.

Used up some more fabric in making the knit top yesterday.

Used more knit fabric to cut out the skirt. There are leftovers of this fabric and I think there is enough to make some knit shorts or capris from it.

I hope to use up two other pieces of fabric this week. Wish me luck.

I am using my stash of Christmas fabric and stash of thread to make that tree skirt, and two sets of napkins (1 completed). I might consider a table runner at some point for the coffee table.

Earlier, pulled some elastic from my stash to fix the cuffs on DH's fleece jacket. Should have enough left to replace the elastic on a pair of my pants.
