Gotta get rid of my stash

June 8, 2014

Sewing (with fabric) is a hobby, yes indeed. But it’s an accepted fact that collecting fabric, is a whole other hobby. They are mildly related, but not completely.

I’ve got a mound of fabric which I’m determined to make smaller.

Some of it is large useable pieces, but some of it is just leftovers.

So I made a couple of things and I will keep making things until I wrestle that pile into submission!

This item was inspired by this.

I say inspired because I’ve yet to meet a furry octopus! I made for a friend who reads a very much a lot.

This scarf was based on this tutorial. I just love this eastern fabric with it’s lavish reds and golds.

Next time I’ll follow her suggestion of tapering the ends and I think I’ll stretch the fleece a little less. But I think I’ll try this one a few more times.

It’s a fun way to make a functional accessory in a variety of colours. Plus I’m sure they’ll go down well as Xmas presents in the northern hemisphere!
