I'm enjoying this...

Stash busting that is.

Wow. It feels good to use stuff that you already have!!

I used the denim I purchased the other day and I made this super sturdy tote. I was a tad on the lazy side and I just folded the sides of the funky retro fabric and used my good friend Heat'n'Bond to attach it to the denim fabric and then I sewed along the folded sides to secure it. It worked great!



I also sorted through my patterns. I purchased a TON of patterns for me not too long ago on sale. Some are keepers, some are not. I've listed a few in my Etsy shop and I have a few more to list.

We are having a gagage sale in July and I'm starting to put stuff aside for that. Hopefully, by the end of the summer I will feel much better about all the "stuff" I've been accumulating.

We used to have a garage sale every year. Now I just freecycle a lot. (The lazy man's way!)

I like the Heat n Bond idea. I think I'll try that some time.

The tote is really cute. I like how you repeated the pattern inside.

One day maybe we'll be able to fit our stashes on one shelf. That's my dream, anyway.

Keep it up - it's supposed to feel good!

Oops, that was me.

cute tote! You'll have to tell me how the pattern selling goes. I have like a million uncut ones that I was thinking of selling.
