I can see why fabric collecting is addicting, especially to someone like me who is totally invigorated by color. This is most of the stash I’ve gathered little by little over the last year. Via the Glorious Internet, I’ve come to find that I actually have some favorite designers. Wacky!

My Rings and Dots Stash

My Animals Stash

Diamonds, Stars, and Cogs Stash

I’m hoping to make some groovy new shorts and pants for Asher. The ones that I and my mother made in past years were such a success and fun to make. I bought these fabrics with Asher in mind. It’s more challenging that I realized at first to find fabrics suitable for boys. I now realize I have way more fabric for sewing than time for sewing.

My Stripes Stash

Fortunately, some shorts and pants we made last summer look like they’re going to fit another season. The pants are now clam diggers, of course, because Asher has grown so much taller.

My Vehicles Stash

I’m kind of waiting to see if this summer Lucas will grab for the shorts grandma sewed for him in the past, or if he’ll gravitate to the more conventional, mass-produced shorts instead. He is probably just on the cusp of not wanting to wear sewn garments anymore. Although, if Lucas wants some for himself, I’ll probably have him pick out the fabric, and most likely it will be much more subdued than these.

    those would make amazing quilts.

    if you have leftovers, lemme know, I’m about to go full steam ahead on an old abandoned quilting project, and if it goes well there’s some others I want to try, and I might could even make you one if I wind up having extra time and energy. No promises yet! But if you have scraps of reasonable size (at least 2″ x 2″) save ’em.
