Handmade Donations

Somewhere along my sewing and quilting journey, I’ve established quite the fabric stash!  A fat quarter here, a few yards of sale fabric there…pretty soon I have much more than I know what to do with.

I’ve given a decent amount of fabric to my sewing friends, but that still leaves quite a bit.  I’ve been working hard to only purchase fabric for specific projects and sew from my stash whenever I can.  Another idea that I’ve come up with is to use some of my stash to create items to donate.

I got this idea when I stumbled on the Craft Hope blog.  I missed their first project, but I was able to participate in several so far.

The current project is to create pillowcases for ConKerr Cancer.


I came up with enough stash fabric to make 14 pillowcases!  I can’t lie, the Castle Peeps are my favorite. 🙂

  1. What a great idea to use up all those excess fabric purchases (is there really any such thing though??). I love your little labels… did you make them yourself?
