Sorry!
I mix things too sometimes. I have a dress for DD cut out right now (Maybe I'll get sewing time today ). It will be a white knit with a print on the outside but for modesty have a 2nd layer of a plain white knit as a slip. The plain white knit is from a t-shirt. I didn't have any plain white and didn't want to waste the cute printed knit with a 2nd layer. (The knit fabric is from 1987 and I'll probably never find more of it. I'm trying not to waste any!)

Re: February Use Your Stash Chatter thread

Sounds sew cute! (hehe) Looking forward to seeing it. You are quite the inspiration, you know All of you ladies are, really.

Last question for the day. I made two (hoping to get one more in, but I am really slow and they take a long time :/) re-useable sandwich baggies with some thick pul. How do I figure out the points on those? They each have a zipper...the kids picked out the print- they will be SO excited when they wake up in the morning! (why I am going to try to get the third done tonight). Our supply of bags has been slowly dwindling so they have been begging me to make them some.

I think they are as excited about this machine as I am

Re: February Use Your Stash Chatter thread

LOOK WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY!!!!!
My prize from last month. I it!!



I haven't been home very long so I'm not sure how much their is of each print. With the flannel monkies, I think I may make Rachel a pillowcase. She's been wanting to wad up a flannel blanket to lay her head on at night because "it's soft and warm". I also checked out the Fabric-by-Fabric One Yard Wonders book from the library today...the crayon print will probably become the crayon/colorbook tote from that book. And I LOVE the looks of that book, I may have to buy it so it can live here. I'm not sure what I'm planning for the rest just yet but I'm sure I'll think of something!!! Thank you Rdesonia!!

Made a skirt and two cloth pads today! I will get a picture up soon! I made my own patterns for the pads, they are a specific size for a DS mama! It was hard work! I had no idea lol.

If it is less than 1/8of a yd (9x22 or 4 1/2 x wof) then you still count it as 1 pt (ie scrap gets one pt), +1 for the zipper +5 bonus=7 pts

That is why when I make a pattern, I'll make multiples of that item. I gotta make it worth the effort.

Re: February Use Your Stash Chatter thread

Now, that is not for each bag, right? How many bags would be in a set? Or are they a set? I am hoping to make 9 total...bough 9 zippers and I know we could really use the bags.

I swear I won't ask so many points questions next month!


Congratulations again, ladies!!! Fabric couldn't be a better prize!

adj- can't wait to see pictures tomorrow! Is the skirt for you?? I am debating making myself a tiered skirt, but I don't think I have fabric I would wear in a three combo.

What part are you at? They always seem huge when I'm knitting them at first too, at least to me
