Fabriholics Anonymous, step 1: Buy no new fabric in 2014
Step 2: Use up fabrics that I have on hand.
Made cloth napkins as a Christmas gift with a pink handkerchief print that I have had since my oldest child (now almost 25) was about 12 years old. Yep, that counts as deep stash.
Step 3: Find new homes for fabrics that you are not going to use anytime soon.
The first fabrics are out the door. Gone. Made excellent use of a medium-size mailing box: how much can I stuff in there? The raspberry fake fur took up a lot of that box!
My nieces who do cosplay will be receiving this bounty: the fake fur; pink camo fleece (leftover from the fleece pants I made this year); metallic stretch denim; black pleather; and blaze orange canvas. Let's hope they can think of things to do with this collection of randomness! I have seen some of their costumes, so have confidence in their creative craftiness.
I'd like to somehow keep track of what I use up or give away, at least in terms of yardage.
Total for this post: 9 1/4 yards (wow! good start)
