So there is often talk about a fabric stash or a wool stash and adding to, or using from, said stash.
But what about patterns??
We all have a pattern stash, don't we?
It's time to confess about the patterns lurking there in your stash that you haven't used.
Things you bought with a specific project in mind and never got to, something you saw and just had to have because someone else made it up and it looked great, or how about the ones you bought on sale just because you liked them?? (and they were so cheap, how could you not!!).
Could there even be a couple you are too 'scared' to break into?
Well now, my friends, is the time to liberate those patterns from your stash!
As past of Blogtoberfest I plan to make at least three items from as yet unused patterns in my stash.
There are a number I can choose from...
I definitely want to make at least one of the gorgeous Sewaholic patterns shown above - that will guarantee at least one item for me!
Then there's the Oliver+s stash.
I'm an unabashed fan of Oliver+s, so I tend to buy most of their dress and skirt patterns (I have three girls, that's my excuse and I am sticking to it!!)...
So I will tackle something from that stash too.
Then there are many in the 'miscellaneous' stash that also need to be addressed.
Perhaps the Clever Charlotte shorts???
Or the cute me and my doll dress from Kwik Sew....
As someone who tends to find a good thing and
flog it to death, I mean stick to it, I am frequently amazed by the variety of patterns Lara uses in her sewing.
Though I will also say I have inside knowledge that she has a very large stash to choose from - so I am sure there is a pattern or two lurking that she still might like to try!!
Come on - join in, liberate those poor unused patterns from your stash.
Leave me a comment and let me know if you post about it and we can spur each other on.
