Four boxes and two bins…part three

Ah ha!  I see you can’t get enough of watching other people de-stash their fabric… well I have to admit, it’s much easier that working on your own …

This process has not been too too painful so far, so moving on to box three !

Again, apologizing for crummy blurry photo!

This seems to be my “fine fabric” box with all my woolen pieces …

Keeping

-Two pieces of Spanish Lace for Mantillas that my mother gave me…my father brought them back from his USMC maneuvers in Spain  one white, one black   *gorgeous*  no idea what I’m going to do with it.

-Beautiful linen cotton from Britex in SF  (2 1/8 yd / 60” wide) from a work trip where we managed an hour for fabric shopping… pulling this out to make a shirt this summer.

-2 yd 60”  wide red italian wool flannel…. card attached says 65 wo / 25 pa / 10 cashmere recycled….so soft and warm…have been saving to figure out the perfect thing to do with it !  and if anyone knows what “pa” is, let me know…I’m just assuming I’m going to be dry-cleaning the finished project anyway.

-5/12 yd 45” wide  black very fine worsted wool…  again, beautiful, can’t remember where I got it and not quite sure what to do with it…maybe a dress??  don’t wear dresses but there is enough for several things

-2 yd 65” wide grey wool flannel …. again, soft and warm…given to me by one of the gals I worked with at Hathaway in NYC many moons ago…she was cleaning out and knew I sewed and knew I would appreciate it.  Need to find just the right thing to make out of it.  (see my problem?!)

-2+ yards 60” wide black/grey wool suiting… I think this is from Britex as well….might have gone with the black worsted.  I think I was going to make a suit jacket out of this with pants and a skirt to match???  back when I worked in an office and people wore suits and pantyhose to work.

-2 yds taupe and 2 yds khaki worsted wool/blend bought at Fabric Place probably to make slacks…when I worked in an office…keep?  pitch??  hmmmmmm  will have to think about this one.

-lots of yards black satin backed flannel coat lining….I think I bought this to re-line a coat I don’t even have anymore (!) but I am going to keep it because it is really good fabric and I’m sure I”ll have to re-line something at some point so back in the box it goes.

The "keep" pile…will set this aside for winter sewing.

Pitching

black “posh” fabric lining….I really can’t stand this stuff…I’ve lined lots of things with it and it’s hot and sweaty and heavy so I am not going to keep it.

That was almost too easy …

What are you de-stashing these days??

    • Definitely agree! I already did my scrapbooking paper and a minor re-arrange of those supplies. Gwen was very happy to take the leftovers, so they are still in my house but not in my studio
