Stashbuster Challenge: 2 more projects done!

I am holding up to my challenge and managing to complete at least one new stashbuster project a day!

Here is a new beach bag/tote that I made from some scraps I found when I was scavenging through a box for something. Actually, I have no idea what I was looking for at the time, but I managed to use up every scrap of the fabric and I love the beach bag.

I have had this idea for a new hobo style drawstring purse and found some vintage chenille squares I had stashed from a swap last year so I added a few of them in too.

I really like this new pattern I made up. It went together so well and has a completely new look. The fabrics I used are from one of my quilt kits. I sold a few raggy purses made from these shabby rose fabrics last year, so I think this one will be pretty popular.

Now I am hooked on this pattern. I made another in the Moda Gypsy Rose prints today but ran into some difficulties with the grommet for the drawstring. I will get that fixed tomorrow.

I have my next project ready to go too. I will have to surprise you with that one, as I have been changing my mind on which pattern I am going to use.

This is kind of fun, just going shopping through my stash fabrics could keep me busy for quite a while. Maybe I will change my challenge to 20, or 30!


  1. OMG! I love the flower beach bag! But I really really love the rag one that is pictured next. That style is sooooo cute!! You ROCK!

  2. I love your new totes! Isn't it amazing what we can come up with using our own stash? Great job!
