The destash edition

Inspired by Rochelle from the blog Lucky Lucille and her Make nine project I've been taking my time since the beginning of the month to have a real good look at my overflowing stash and find nine things I could realistically (hopefully) accomplish in the next twelve months without buying any new fabric or pattern. Here's what I've come up with...


July / August 2016

Love season.
I've been working all summer and listening to Seamwork radio made my commute so much better.
Pattern/wardrobe obsession : sewing all the basics. On top of my list the Penny raglan and Driftless cardigan by Grainline studio.
4 & 5
While my parents were here we took the time to play the tourists in our own city (4 is Picasso museum) and around (5 is the medieval city of Provins).
Binge watching House for the past two months.


Vest size 3 months (my own pattern) / Yarn : Partner 3,5 (Phildar).

Parc Bagatelle harem pants size 3 months (La Droguerie) / Fabric : from an old skirt.

Postcard and body : Hema.

Box : Sostrene Grene.

When in doubt, go for simple (and when in a hurry, go for easy!). Take garter stitch, beige, blue denim and white, add cute little flower buttons, and if your like me (stationary addict) run to Sostrene Grene, find a pretty box to pack everything and voilà, you have a pretty failproof present in your hands (if I do say so myself...).
