Even though we're not sewing with a strictly defined theme this week, the stash busting theme does lend itself to some fun community participation opportunities: a stash busting game! We'll be tracking our progress this week at The Sewing Circle, so be sure to check out this thread.
So how does this all work? As a motivation to dive into that stash and get sewing, we're going to award points to our creations sewn THIS WEEK based on these guidelines:
Don't forget to include photos!
At the end of the week, we'll total our points up and see who really tore through their sewing room. And of course, the Top Stash Buster gets a prize. It's all honor system, but I know you all are a trust-worthy crowd.
Ok, let's get sewing!

your sister will let you borrow her camera??? wow
No seriously, I look forward to seeing your efforts. They certainly out-double, out-triple and out-quadruple mine. I like skirts too but even the simplest one takes me more than two hours. Cheers.
Hello ladies! I cut this dress out of Simplicity 4224 (which I never used before) in...2007. Yes, this dress was prepped for sewing 4 years ago. I finally sat down and put it together! It took me 4 hours after I realized I cut all the pieces out in different sizes - yay beginning sewing!
So: I used 3 yds of fabric = 15 pts
Never used pattern before = 3 pts
Used a pattern/fabric I've had for way more than a year = 10 pts
Total = 28 pts (wooo!) read the whole story here, as well as some other random things made for the challenge:
Hah, yeah, I've got a few things that I cut out many many years ago and still haven't finished. One of these days I'll get around to dusting them off and making them up! (Except that, of course, I don't like any of them any more. Hmmmm.)
Meg, I love,love your dress.The color and style look so good on you..
Doesn't it feel wonderful to get it done after "4 years"? lol
