Crafts

My "use what you have" fabric challenge: midweek status.

This week I'm on a "use what you have" challenge to pare down my fabric stash.

So far...
- Sunday: 46x52" picnic blanket/couch quilt, used about 1 yard of denim cut from old jeans and 2 1/2 yards of an upholstery remnant;
- Monday: silverware roll for picnic basket, used about 1/2 yard of fabric from a lot of short cuts gained in swap with indigodye last year;
- Tuesday: two beach bags (Butterick 3562, view E), used about 2 1/2 yards of a Dora the Explorer print that's been in my stash since summer 2004;
- Wednesday: three pillow slipcovers, used another yard of the upholstery remnant first used on Sunday.

I'm still looking for a "real" project to tackle today since the slipcovers were a quick project.
