But when fabricworm hosts such a ginormous sale, and my stash is (believe it or not) actually on the skinny side, how can I NOT replenish my stash... just a tad? I'm getting ready to reopen my shop in the next couple of weeks, barring any catastrophic life events. New designs, new products... very excited! I'll post some sneak peeks along the way!
I've managed to get a little bit of sewing done lately, working on an old order for boob scarves. They're for an amazing lady (and her Bunco group) for breast cancer awareness and support. She placed the order months ago, right before Henry's birth, (yeah. I'm a horrible slacker-flake...) and I feel like I have to get them done before I can start sewing anything else, so boobs it is for now.
I took a brief break from sewing the other day to play around in my scrap fabric bin. A tutorial on how to make handmade twine from fabric scraps had recently captured my attention, especially the parts about it being a scrap-buster, and also mentioning that the whole process was "sort of meditative." (it WAS!) So I gave it a spin. . .
a basket full of fabric bits soon became a foot of twine,
which then turned into several feet of twine. and then several yards of twine. . . .
