Stashbusting Sewalong and Stuff

Stashbusting Sewalong

I’ve made the following pledge over at Cation Designs:

“I, Janelle of Sew Hopeful, commit to using at least 12 pieces of stash
fabric in 2013. I also commit to no new pattern purchases except
anything released by and no new fabric purchases except
for my couture dress class until I have used up said 12 pieces of stash


Here is a picture of some of the fabrics I plan on using this year:

From left to right, top row: Vintage gingham in green and white, enough for a dress, a purple ponte knit, a cream cotton lace, a navy cotton lace, a cream silk cotton, aqua knit.  Bottom row: A green stripe knit, a border print, a blue vintage poly cotton, a blue and white stripe knit, a pink cotton with a floral print, a cotton voile in a bright watermelon with a small print, a cream cotton with the small purple and green flower, and a cream wool knit.

There are 6 dress lengths and the rest are only enough for a top or a skirt.

On other news, I was the featured member yesterday on Pattern Review, which was a nice surprise.  I love that site.  It helps so much when evaluating whether a pattern will work for me or not.

Oohhh, look, over there on the right….
