Another gift I gave recently was this “Pear Portfolio Pad.” It was a kit over at Connecting Threads and I thought it would be a good birthday present for my mom. Even with all of the pieces and padding, it only took an afternoon to sew together. I was pretty pleased with myself because usually I have a hard time sewing projects with multiple linings. I hope I am getting better at it!
It is a good time to check in about my fabric stash progress too:
Used over the past few weeks: 10 yards
Used year to Date: 15 yards
Added Recently: 13 yards
Added Year to Date: 15 yards
Destashed Year to Date: 5 yards
Net Out of Stash for 2012: 5 yards
Still ahead of the fabric stash, but I did end up buying most of the fabric for recent sewing projects. Hopefully the rest of the year I can just use the stash!
