About two weeks ago I suddenly realized that I was turning into a fabric hoarder. What I mean by that is that I'd buy some fabric because I loved it, and then I did not want to use it, because I love it. Now, that did not really make any sense. I don't ususally like to keep anything in the house that does not get used, no special dishes, no special quilts, nothing like that in our house. Everything gets used on everyday basis. And fabric was not going to be an exception.
I decided right there and then to start cutting into my very precious stacks of fabric and turning them into something useful. I think I've been doing pretty well and I have quite a few projects to show you. And, instead of making a few posts about them, I just decided to put them all together and make one post showing them all off. Ready, here we go:
here. I used my newly discovered favorite fabric washi by Rashida Coleman Hale.
This paper pieced place mat took forever to make, the blocks were really, really tiny (tutorial here) and I pretty much spent the whole afternoon on it. Love how it turned out, though. But I will save paper piecing for my pillows next time, place mats don't have to be so complicated.
Phew, I feel much better now. I think I'm back on my way to being a fabric lover instead of a fabric hoarder. I'm hoping to keep using my fabric instead of just looking at it and buying more and more of it. I already raided my stash and got a stack of fabric ready for my next project.
Enjoy your day, Svetlana.
