If you craft or sew you know the dreaded overgrown stash. It started small, you saw a great deal that you just couldn’t pass up, you didn’t have a project specifically in mind, but you had all these great ideas and would use it soon. And eventually it became enormous, encompassing more than you could ever practically use.
And so I decided to start this project. My goal is to slash my stash by constructing all costumes and projects for the next year with items from my stash. Here are the rules: 1. The primary materials for each project must come from the stash. This includes fabric, buttons, ribbon and other items that have been stockpiled. 2. Sewing notions such as needles, thread, and other similar items may be bought. 3. Exceptions to stash projects will be made for school fashion projects that require materials not already represented in the stash. Let’s see how far I get!
