I think that the title of this post is a dilemma that many sew-ers have – but let me explain. I’ve found myself in an incredibly fortunate fabric-based position: at home, tucked in the corner by the dining table, is a large, wooden blanket box, handmade by a male relative back when my Dad was a child. It’s full to bursting with fabric – some that I’ve bought myself but many that have been donated to me by Grandmas and Aunties.
In fact, I have so much fabric I could probably comfortably clothe half the population.
Yet why do I always find myself browsing the internet and my local fabric shops for new material? This post is all about learning to love the fabric that I’ve already got. So, after a bit of an after-work sort out, I’ve picked a few of my favourite pieces that I really need to use! Any suggestions for potential projects would be greatly appreciated!
Do you find that you have the same dilemma? How do you keep your fabric stores in check?
