I didn't get a chance to do a whole lot of stashbusting this week.
I have been on a new quest. Our sofa is about the same age as my son and is getting extremely threadbare. We've been shopping for a new one for years and haven't been unable to find anything that I like. I have finally found a place to have it reupholstered. I have to pick out fabric and hadn't realized how hard it is to find
upholstery fabric now. I'm sure most people simply buy a new couch, but I've tried going that route and it didn't work.
It's going to take between 11 and 14 yards to have it done and in the end it is going to cost more than I originally paid for the sofa. The only fabric I have found so far that I really like is $104/yard. OUCH. Not an amount I am willing to pay. I found another online, but no durability rating given. I guess I'm going to have to keep looking. I'm not going to consider my upholstery fabric stash addition (if I find any). It's more like buying a new couch.
No fabric stashbusting this week. I did start putting together the quilt for my coworker. No new fabric used, but no new fabric added either. I'm sort of standing in place.
Does yarn count? I did manage to use 3 skeins of stashed yarn. I made a shopping bag
. DH laughed thinking it was funny that I would use a knit bag for shopping,
but I think it's great. It expands a ton and is really lightweight. I'm doing my part being green. :cD
I also made this felted bag
. I love felting yarn. I bought a set of Options knitting needles
for Knitpicks.com and wanted to try them out. They are wonderful, very smooth and a dream to knit with.
