Okay... I entered PatternReview.com's 2012 fabric stash contest. I have way too much fabric and I can't allow myself to buy anymore till I use a fair amount. Unless it's for work of course....
So here's my plan so far...
I have a yard left of a wonderful rayon/cotton knit I bought and have made at least 3 tops from it. I can squeeze in one more + a panty. I also have 2 1/2 yards of some blue poly knit jersey with beautiful drape that would look lovely. If the top works out well, I'll do the dress too.
Brown Linen I bought several months back... Pattern is ready, just haven't got around to doing it. This one would use about 2 1/2 yards.
Oooooo... I just found some black raw silk too... This must be ages old. I don't even remember purchasing it. This would make beautiful pants! I might make it with this instead of the linen...The linen is not as soft as I thought it would be.

I know I have some black fabric somewhere... It's a staple. If I can't find it, I still have more brown linen. I'll make a pair for my daughter, maybe myself. That'll use another 2 yards.
I have some light blue stretch poplin I bought some time ago. It would be perfect and will use up another 11/2 yards. And if I can squeeze the sleeveless version onto this beautiful linen print, I'll do that too. I only have 1 yard of that one.
Hopeful Total: 10 1/2 yards
But then of course, that's only if work doesn't pick up. Right now it's a little slow, but I still plan on working on some shop items in the mornings, along with a few items I'm working on for clients (a set of aloha shirts and a vest). I've been saving my personal sewing for afternoons, while I'm helping my son with homework. His work area is right next to my sewing space... how convenient! :) So if I focus on my stuff while he works, I can get quite a bit done.
Happy sewing in 2012 everyone!
