Use the Good Stuff: day 15: use your stash


What do you stash? You know, the stuff you buy to do things with. Food items? Cookbooks? Yarn? Fabric? Sewing Patterns? Wood? Beads? Whatever you stash, dive into it when you take on your next project. I’m not talking getting making back out of the dormancy, that’s a different post, I’m talking about taking makers and making them use their stuff.

I have fabric. A lot of fabric. I have this mint green vinyl pleather from who knows when. But today, it’s being cut into an awesome backpack purse from HotPatterns, the Palladium Backpack. It’s bigger than it looks on the pattern envelope, I think. Bigger than those nylon ones you see kids carry. And this pleather/vinyl? Plush, and just the color for spring 2013!

What are you stashing? Dive in your stash. Be inspired!

I'm Ann. I've been sewing since I was 9. My first project was a denim wrap skirt. Thrifting is a way of life for me - both eco-chic and financially savvy.
