Four boxes and two bins…part four

Yay!  The last of the big boxes…I am so happy I took the time to work on this project.  Definitely time to clean out the old and start making stuff…I can feel new projects on the horizon…but now on to Box Four…

piles of stuff...

piles of stuff…

Ah ha!  So this is the box with the lighter weight fabric earmarked for clothing…. wondering where this went….Have a lot of sewing to do from this box in the next few months.

Re-purpose

-pieces of fleece leftover from making “cozy pants” for the girls…I’ve been cutting them up into 6” squares and will sew those squares together for throws for each of them.

Keeping

-Two lengths of linen colored linen fabric…originally purchased for shorts/capri’s and a jacket…may turn into shorts and skirt

-Three lengths coordinating Amy Butler “Blossom” (I think) prints….one for a skirt, one a blouse and one for jacket lining…. definitely going to sew these up this year, not quite sure into what yet.

-Three lengths denim, from mid to very lightweight…. skirt? shorts? top?  All of the above?

-Linen/cotton windowpane plaid…have had this forever, not sure what to do with it but it is really beautiful.

-Three lengths cotton prints for sleeveless blouses….honestly, one of these pieces I am not really that thrilled with so I may let that go.  The other two are cute and I have to dig around and see what pattern I could make with them…

-One length pansy print fabric I have had forever and have been afraid to cut up… I think this is the year

-Two pieces cotton twill, black and brown…for shorts…now that I’m wearing my shorts longer, I hope there is enough of each.

-Length of linen/cotton/poly blend print…black and brown batik…I really liked this when I bought it but now I’m not quite so sure… can’t decide if I want to put the effort into making something out of it or not…would probably be a full skirt….will keep for now and think about it.

-Big length of muslin for fitting.

more crummy photos, I know…trying to shoot quick and move on to the next pile of stuff!!  you get the idea!

Pitching 

-cotton print no longer thrilled with

-pieces of blue bottom weight cut out but never sewed…now lily is too big for them!

*Yay*!  (insert jumping up and down and hand clapping)  The big boxes are done and just taking things out and re-folding them I have gotten a lot more room.  Definitely will not need all four boxes going forward.

Now just the bins to go through…on to the next post!
