Admit it. You have a big bag of fabric and fabric scraps that you keep "meaning to do something with." My bag o' scraps grows almost weekly. It's a real problem. Garage sales, thrift shops, and the fabric store (of course) relentlessly taunt me with their beautiful textiles and patterns. I succumb to a vintage gingham in blue or perky seersucker in kelly green. My failure to actually use some of the swatches is partially due to the fact that I secretly fear messing up a project and ruining the fabric forever! Here are a few projects that have me inspired to A. Be brave and do something with my stash, and B. learn to sew.
