It has been awhile since I have made much of anything but quilts, blankets and bags, so browsing through patterns was kind of fun.
It was not intentional to start back to sewing with the letter 'A', but Aprons caught my eye, and I remembered a collection of embroidery pieces that would be perfect accents on aprons. So I picked a pattern and got started.
What a relief to feel NO Fabric-Remorse. I'm cured. It seems rehab worked in reverse for I feel okay with being Queen of Not Quite As Much as before, and am pretty proud of myself for Re-Stashing my Fabric Stash with an eye out for Clearance Short Yardage Bolts. Yes, I am now Queen of a Remnant Stash.
Oh, and you stock and re-stock your favorite fabrics...cottons. Plus you get first crack at those bolts going on clearance. In addition, you keep an eye on the ones you like until they are down to remnant yardage...that would be 1.447 yardage...just under 1 and a half yards.
The other good thing about collecting remnants is they take up less space. Mine are filed in smallish plastic baskets which stack. One more thing. You don't have to wonder if there is enough for a particular project...they are all under a yard and a half.
That's my story and I am sticking to it....for now!
Oh what a relief it is to be a Remnant Apron Maker!
