This week I've made a start on my massive fabric stashbusting challenge for the year.
I'm still catching up from our big holiday and getting the girls back to school, so I wanted to start with something easy.
I sorted my fabric at the end of last year and worked out a rough plan of what to make with things.
This pile of fabrics is ones I'm not so fond of.
I decided to use them to make some fabric wrapping clothes (furoshiki) and fabric gift bags.
I have a wrapping box full of left over gift wrapping paper, ribbons, gift bags, old cards to be used as tags - and also some wrapping clothes. We try to keep our gift wrapping environment friendly!
So now we have some more wrapping cloths:
Some simple gift bags which can be tied with ribbons or scrap fabric:
And also a couple of gift tote bags.
At least now this fabric can be put to use, and also prettied up with ribbons, colourful scrap ties - and I also plan to make plenty fabric flowers from my scrap fabric that can be added to our gift wrapping box.
All in all a good start to my stash-busting!
I just need to keep chipping away at the pile - a little each week!
Have you done any stash-busting lately?
