Style the Stash
Last week I confessed that I had an enormous stash of fabric. I don't think I have told you quite how much yet - possibly because I don't even like admitting it to myself - but collecting fabric did keep me sane during quite a few tedious, impossible to sew time sieges. And it does mean I have a lot of lovely fabric to work through now.
And patterns. Lots of them. Lots and lots of lovely patterns to work through. Some will not work out, and will be consigned to the rubbish bin pronto. Others will be winners.
So, I have decided to set my own challenge for the rest of the year. To actually use the fabric I have before purchasing another roomful. I could join another stash challenge, but I rather want the flexibility to sew what I like when I like from my stash, as part of the sew your own wardrobe for a year challenge.
I am not sure if others will want to join this low key challenge. If you would like to, please let me know. I haven't yet worked out any parameters, so if you have any suggestions about what we could do, please let me know. Maybe a jacket, a dress, a pair of pants, a blouse, a skirt. Over time, and all from patterns and fabrics in the stash.
What are your thoughts? What would you like to do with your stash? Would you like a low key sew-a-long?
Keep sewing....Sarah Liz :-)
