50 Litres Of Sewing ClutterDid you read Part 1 & Part 2 of 50 Litres of Sewing Clutter?
Do you want to know what else was in the box?
Let's find out. It's a surprise for me too because it's been so long since I looked in there. That box was stuffed to overflowing.
This brownish fabric was the beginnings of a tote bag.
I have vague recollections of this horrid blue stretch velvet covering a house mates cushion for a short period for some reason or other. Blerch!
nasty blue fabric.
This was part of a dress at some point. It's just rubbish now.
So I shoved everything I definitely want gone in the blue cushion cover. The rest should probably just go straight in there too.
Why am I questioning if I should keep them? Probably something to do with the work I've already put into making those items. If I'm honest with myself I think these are some UFO's that will never become WIP's again.
It helps to remind myself that this is just one of the boxes in my storage room. My storage room which used to be 2 rows of boxes deep instead of just one.
That doesn't include the boxes in my sewing room.
This stuff has to go. I do not want to be spending my limited sewing time on these things. I just don't. It doesn't matter that they are half finished, that the fabric might be useful for something else. They are not what I want to make and they are not fabrics I want to use. So they are all going! Accept maybe that bit of satin and the apron bits.....aggghhh. What is wrong with me?
But that's not everything that was in the container. That's right there's still more to go. Are you shaking your head in awe at how I could've kept this stuff for so long, or are you nodding in commiseration?
