stitching from my stash

here i am, modeling my new reversible apron! you might remember, i blogged about it here, and again here. soon after my second apron post it was all cut out and ready to sew. then it sat at the bottom of my sewing caddy for several months... almost 2 years!
for the next 4 weeks my girl friends and i are busting stash together. this means no fabric purchases from may 15th- june 15th and we will sew as many things as possible from fabric we already own. i needed this baaaddd!!

so far i have finished my emmaline apron, and made 12 coloring wallets - one each for harper and esme' and the rest for gifts. we gifted the lizard wallet to one of esme's classmates today!

i also made esme' two reversible (i am really into reversible lately!) smocks. love these! so quick and easy and CuTe!!

right now i am off to bust some more stash... fabric covered head bands this time! wanna join me? do you think you are up to the brutal challenge of not making any fabric purchases for 4 weeks? if so leave me a comment - i would love to see photos of your stash busting creations!

oh, and i will be posting details about the seasonal celebrations summer swap tomorrow, so please stop by for a visit and sign up!

I just love the green dot side to your apron. That is so pretty! Good luck with your challenge. I need to finish my room. Right now I have no where to work therefore no crafting is happening over here. Well, there's a little crochet, but no sewing at all.
