Adventures in Fabric Art

Sunday Stash Report: 11/2/14



I used five yards for donation pillowcases this week, and I didn’t buy any fabric.  I have more pillowcases ready to go that will count on this coming week.  Since I have a basket drawer where I keep juvenile/novelty/weirdo fabric that I want to use for pillowcases, I can really see the difference with this yardage pulled out.  I’m cutting up the scraps, too, everything too narrow to cuff a pillowcase, and it feels like I’m getting rid of it.  I know, one is never really rid of fabric.  It will keep popping up again in scrap projects, but at least that basket looks better.

I use this tutorial from Mama Spark, but its similar to many others, with no exposed seams. I donate mine to ConKerr Cancer.

This week: +0 yards, -5 yards
YTD: +113.25 yards, -184.75 yards
Net stash used 2014: -71.5 yards

How did you do this week?  Keep working away at it!

  1. Great pillowcases for a very worthy cause. Thanks for donating to ConKerr Cancer.

  2. Your pillowcases look so nice laying there. Great cause. I too am making them to donate to a children’s hospital. I had to buy some more fabric though. The cuffs are coming out of my stash, but that doesn’t make the stash go down as quickly.!

  3. Pillowcases are such a great way to use up stash. Nice to see those scrap bins getting used up!

  4. I’ve never made a pillow case. Might give it a go sometime soon. Great to see some of the stash being depleted. I cut up heaps of my stash at the beginning of the year cutting pieces into useful sizes – anything smaller than a fat quarter (or equivalent in width of fabric stuff) I cut into scraps sized according to Bonnie Hunter’s recommendations (well sort of anyway) Now to use that up
