I am at my in-laws’ home right now, which is always great for my sewing. They watch the kids and I sit back here and do whatever. Yay for creative whatever!

This time, I decided to challenge myself: I brought a random box of fabrics with me. I am going to make as many things as I can with only what’s in this box.

Ok, only what’s in this box + the random notions and thread I threw into a ziploc bag.

And the flannel and interfacing that I need for so many items.

(Sorry for the sad lighting & bad photo — the best I can do at 10:00 at night.)

Only one planned project is included: the winner’s bunting from my previous giveaway. Other than that, it’s just a box of randomness and this is really exciting. I’ve felt too much like a factory lately — just churning out what I thought I’ve needed to. No fun! Now, it may not seem like good marketing sense, but I’m going to make what’s fun and whatever I feel like.

I’m also making another committment: I’m not buying any new fabric until next year. You should see my massive stash! It’s waaaaaay too large for our tiny apartment. The only exceptions: a custom order for a client, notions necessary to finish a project, or anything else that must be bought to finish something out. I’m curious about what will happen. I know my checkbook will sigh in relief. However, I will go into serious fabric withdrawal. I just hope I don’t get the shakes and start sewing crookedly! Hah!

I’ll post pictures over the next few days of what I come up with out of this box. Now, I’m off to finish the winning bunting!
