Stash-busting challenge

It's no secret that there has been a bit of a lack of sewing around these parts recently. And by "a bit of a lack of" I mean pretty much none. Although, newsflash, I did make a little zipped bag as a gift last weekend...that counts right? So if you've read about the Birmingham meet-up that I am co-organising in June, you might be wondering how I can possibly even be thinking about buying any more fabric at all when I have hardly made a dent in my purchases from the meet-up last November such as these beautiful fabrics...

 
 
...and these....

 
 
 
The truth is I can't! I'm feeling the guilt of having an ever-expanding stash. So I've come up with a plan! I am setting myself a stash-busting challenge.
 
 
I, KraftyKat, will make at least three garments using fabric
from my stash before the Birmingham meet-up on
Saturday 15th June. If I do not complete this challenge,
I promise not to buy or acquire from the swap ANY more
fabric at this meet-up.
 
 
So there we go. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I have just under 2 months to make my three garments. Hopefully it will be a good way to kick-start my sewjo too. Wish me luck....!!
 
Have you ever set yourself any sewing challenges? Were you successful? Do you want to join me in a pre-swap challenge of your own? I'd love to hear from you!

  3. You can do it! You cant possibly go to an amazing sewing swap meet and not take anything home with you!!

    P.S can't remember if I have said this before - but that lovely tweedy red wool that we both bought in November for £5/m? Well I saw it in John Lewis for £16/m so we got a fab bargain!
