Continuing on from the last post, I have now finished sorting through my craft stash. Yay! And it only took a few days.
Anyway, let’s take a look.
First batch is all my scraps and small fabric remnants. I had a ton of them. Perfect for making tiny things like doll clothes and accessories, but how many of those do I possibly need?
After sorting, I’m down to half.
The stuff I’m keeping is in the basket, the rest is history. I found stuff I completely forgot I had and stuff I wished I had gotten rid of sooner.
Since the last batch was small fabric bits, it made to since to move on the larger fabric pieces. Large enough to for major projects like dresses and such, but only if I actually want to use the fabric.
Now again, the stuff I’m keeping is all that pretty fabric in the basket. The large amount of fleece and stuff on the outside is going. The kids will have fun with it.
Something I’ve noticed that it is so much easier to get rid of fabrics when they were free to me or really cheap to buy as opposed to stuff I had to pay a good amount for, even if I don’t like the pattern on the paid for stuff. Something to do with that initial investment and wanting to get my money’s worth I guess.
Of course maybe it means I should be more careful about which fabrics I buy in the future or how much of it I buy. Like if for some reason I have to buy some fabric I don’t like much, I should know exactly how much I need and only buy that much.
And the final batch? Everything else!
All the random stuff I tend to collect for crafts as well as office supplies that are useful or cute. It’s the cute stuff that are particularly hard to part with.
Which is probably why the stuff I’m getting rid of isn’t quite as cute, still fairly random though. They include a pvc pipe scrap, reading glasses, and a charger for am unknown device. And now I won’t have to deal with them anymore. The only thing left to do is to think up of things to make with the craft supplies I have left.
Here’s the updated list:
Seven down, just one more to go. The final projects should be up in a couple of days, look forward to it.
