So, I got rid of it. All of it. Now, my fabric stash is down to this*:
The black and white gingham came from a closing sale of a Fabricland location. It was 60% off and I was disappointed that I wasn't finding any pretty cotton prints, so I went for the next best thing in this slightly shimmery satin. I have no idea what I'm going to make with it.
The blue on the bottom was a gift to me from my brother after he made a trip to India a couple years back. It's even more complicated than the gingham since, as a gift, and consider the trek it to the other side of the world, I'm nervous about letting my scissors anywhere near it.
So, instead of being turned into beautiful things, both of these fabrics live in my dining room, on a set of shelves with a bunch of other tchotchkes. I think they're kind of pretty there, sitting underneath a little box from the Chapters Indigo Home collection, where I keep my crochet hooks and sewing needles. When I put them there, I was intent on simply tucking them away, but it wasn't long before I realized I appreciated the charm of the little vignette.
And you? Do you have a fabric stash? Big or small? And where do you keep it: on display, or tucked away?
What would you turn this fabric into?
