I’ll need to sew for 16 more years

I attempted to count my Fabrics recently. I got up to 107. I only counted one shelf of 2, and none of the Rubbermaid tubs or milk crates or cardboard boxes.

So let’s just round that right up to 200. But I have plans for it all!!!

So. A good plan would be to try to use up 1 entire piece of fabric every month. I think I could do that.

It would take me 16.7 years to sew up everything in my basement.

Why did I even do this math? This was not encouraging! I love all these fabrics! I love my fabric corner! It is a land of dreams!

This is good math to consider when people ask me to sew for them. “Actually, right now, I have 16.7 years of projects already planned, but I can add you to the list, if you like?”

That makes me laugh a little…. 😊

Happy sewing.


Reusable produce bags #1

Don’t like it. Not one bit. The bias tape makes it too heavy. I mean, with fruits and veggies you are paying by weight. I winged it. I’m not good at that.

Anyone know of a free pattern for these babies?

Stay tuned for attempt # 2!

This super strong mesh is from Marshall Fabrics. It can for sure handle the weight of fruits and veggies…..

The mesh is not from my stash. It . Bias tape and cord from my stash . Mesh cost me 5 bucks for a wee little bit. Client is paying 5 dollars a bag. Win!

2 years later….

Finally finished. No one likes it. I might sell it.

Mostly fat quarters gifted to me from my neighbor. Some fabrics from my stash. I bought the handkerchief quilting cotton to pull it all together. I also bought the bias tape for the trim because I didn’t have enough, red, white, or blue at home to do the whole thing. Finished, washed and dried, measures 104″ x 82″

I hope it sells. Maybe I will lock it away for Scouts Auction in the fall.
