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!

  1. Go on Kat, you can do it!!

  2. Good luck! Some lovely pieces there, I hope it's inspired 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!
