The term "bust-my-stash" has taken on a new meaning around here. I began looking around in my newly organized studio & came to the realization that if I didn't buy another hank of yarn or yard of fabric for a year, I would still have something to do every-single-day.
In light of this, I have decided to bust-my-stash. Hence, this darling little addition to my collection. What I love about it is it looks so small, but in fact, it's like Mary Poppin's carpet bag! I can fit so much in it :o)
Did I mention I got to use up my ribbon scraps?
It feels so good to use up my stash; then I can look forward to buying more :o)

Sew closed the bottom of your bag with remaining yarn. take each corner and fold in about 2 inches, tack down well. Your bag should stand up like a paper bag.
Felt. I used my washing machine & Joy dish soap. Ran through twice.
Embellistment is applique. I highly recommend "Sew Liberated".
