Destashing Has Begun

I spent all day Saturday going through all my fabric and piles of materials. I sorted, organized, and donated some things that I knew I would never use. It feels so good to have less stuff. I am not sure how long it will last, but as of right this minute all of my fabric is folded in an old dresser in the garage. This was long overdue. I hope it will help me to finish some of my projects. I know it will be a lot easier to find what I am looking for now.

Here's all my fabric.


Here's all my wool. It is a little scary. I also have a bin of vintage sheets, pillowcases and another with t-shirts and knit fabric. Then there is half a closet full of items waiting to be repurposed. This is after I got rid of tons of stuff. I clearly have a problem.


I want to list some scraps in my Etsy shop, but I haven't decided the best way to do it. I am thinking about just putting up a general listing for a flat rate box filled with scraps. Any thoughts?




I did find a little time to make some burp cloths and bibs for a friend. Hopefully my organization will pay off and I will get some good sewing done this week.

Happy Crafty Tuesday.
****edited to add- I now have some scraps for sale in the shop. ****

Love the colors on those bibs and burp cloths - so cute!

Ah, the stash problem. I know it well. As of right now I have everything in my closet...mostly. I have a bunch of scraps from cutting that I want to use to fill floor pillows, but they are really unusable. I figured that was a good way to use them. In your case I would probably do the FRB filled with felted scraps. Not sure what I would price it at, though.

I love the bibs and burp cloths. Are you going to put those on you Etsy? What kind of closure does the bibs have?
