Stash Bash

I’ve never met a crafter without a stash of some kind. This year my goal is to use up all the craft supplies I have spent money on that are taking up mental and physical space in my life.  Join me here every Thursday for a Stash Bash. 

I was hoping to have post up by sun up but my model fell asleep super early yesterday and did not want to wake up until 9 AM today.  Next week I promise to have the Stash Bash posted by the time the sun wakes up.  

This week I am sharing another crochet project.  I have been working on more fun projects but they are all for Livie’s birthday party next Saturday so I can’t show you just yet but I will give you a hint…the theme is Candyland.

This pair of keyhole flats is a pattern I wrote about 2 years ago when Livie started to walk.  I made them for a friends little toddling girl and they aren’t much of a stash bash because they take up so little yarn.  They are made of bamboo silk yarn and are lovely to feel.  I usually like to buy antique buttons when I make these but since I have to use stash materials I used these little clear buttons that I saved years ago from a little shirt which went into the rag bag.  Do you save buttons or elastic from clothing that is getting tossed?

So what did you get done this week, I can’t wait to see!   No projects to share yet?  Take a picture of your stash and some of your plans for your stash and post that!  Below is the linky list for you to add your project. 

Here’s what to do. There are no rules. 
Just use what you have and try to not buy new supplies, unless you need it to complete a project that you are making from stuff you already have in your stash. 
Take a picture of your project or progress and blog about it or post a picture to flickr.
Then come back here on Thursdays and post a link to your post.
Don’t forget to link back to the Stash Bash so others can find us and get encouraged too.
Fair enough?
