Morgan thought the title should be binging and purging, but I didn’t feel that made for a nice visual…
Anyway, lately I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed by my fabric stash. Trying to organize and clean it up seems like a very daunting task and I don’t even know where to begin. I suppose most of the problem is due to my lack of organization. For so long I’ve felt that my sorting and piling method was working for me, but now I’m thinking I was just kidding myself. I’ve decided that I finally do have to get organized, and I suppose that means buying plastic bins and sorting and folding the fabric by color. (maybe then I’ll stop buying multiples of fabric I already own!)
One of my biggest problems has to be with my scrap stash. This picture shows many piles of scraps – yes, I can’t throw anything away! I have all the best intentions to use up every last scrap, but I realize that’s just not going to happen. I’m drowning in scraps and there aren’t enough hours in the day to sew them all together!
This is where you come in. I went through my scraps and came up with a few little bundles to give away. The first bundle is made up of larger scraps – those that I don’t think I’ll ever use.
Then I went through the small scraps – some of these are quite tiny (and now very wrinkly!), but I did at one time really think that I was going to use them. They’d be great for a spiderweb quilt, which is what I had in mind, but then never got around to. Or they could be used for any other small projects. Did I mention that they’re tiny? They are.Â I made up three bags of these small scraps.
To enter to win one of these four bundles, just leave a comment here. Maybe you can give me some ideas as to what you’d do with small scraps – I’m always up for new project ideas! I’ll pick 4 winners on Monday night.
Thanks for helping me do some spring cleaning! Maybe I’ll be able to show you a photo of a completely organized stash by then!
Edit: Comments are now closed. I’ll pick winners shortly!
