Sewing from your stash

Stash. Anyone who sews has a stash. Since moving on to a boat I have started to sew from my stash more. I have all of this beautiful fabric already so I need to make things with it! I had a very productive day yesterday.

After getting caught up on custom orders I was able to work on two new patterns that I had purchased. One of them was released YESTERDAY and I already sewed it up!

I already had the fabrics cut out for some Annex Double Zip Box Pouches. When making one, you might as well make one in each size right? I absolutely love double zip pouches. Sew Sweetness has the Filigree Double Zip Pouch that I love. But I think I like the Annex better! This makes an awesome pouch for pencils and pens, keep your highlighters on the other side. And it has a little carry handle on one end.

I did not make any adjustments to the pattern. These are also great for sewing up scraps of fabric. I’m a sucker for scrap packs from Hawthorne Threads and always have to add one to my cart when ordering something else. The large and medium pouches were made using fabrics I got in a scrap pack.

This pattern was quick and easy. I had the fabric already cut but had them all sewn before lunch yesterday by doing it assembly line style. The small would be perfect for tossing in a backpack for a pencil case. The medium is a little longer but shorter than the large and the large is deeper and taller.

I’m always making my great nieces clothes but yesterday I made something for my great nephew. He just turned one and will soon start noticing if he’s left out on Auntie M Mail Day at their house.

Peek-a-boo Pattern Shop released the cutest quickest romper yesterday. The Lil’ Rascal Romper. It has two sleeve options. Dolman sleeve, which I think is adorable for girls, and tank top! It also comes with shorts or pants length options and using fold over elastic or cotton lycra for the neck and arm bands.

I made Jameson the tank version in shorts length. I wish they lived closer so I could see it on him sooner! No snaps, Velcro or any other kind of closure. Slip on and off through the neck hole. The pattern testers all said that diaper changes and potty breaks were a breeze because of the easy on and off.
Now off to work on some cute summer outfits for the nieces with some awesome flip flop fabric, find it here, and I also had some necklaces made to match this fabric for them since they love their necklaces from Tickled Pink Designs. Here’s a little sneak peek at that fabric ?. This necklace is named “Toes in the Sand.” I don’t see it listed on her website yet but you can always message her through her Facebook Page! My nieces wear one of her necklaces every day and LOVE them.

Happy Friday! Feel free to comment with your favorite scrap busting projects! I could always use more! My goal is to see through at least two of the tubs of fabric before the end of the year. So I better get to sewing.
