12 days of sewing: #4 Quick stash busting sewing ideas

For day 4 of my 12 days of sewing series, I’ve got a session all about quick and easy stash busting project ideas.


As we’re headed into the weekend after a week of not really knowing what day it is, Maybe you’re planning on doing a little sewing?


At this time of year, post festivities, many of us have little energy for a “big project” but we still crave the dopamine hit from making something new. In this video lesson, I share several projects that will use up those scraps of fabric in your stash, whilst crafting something useful too.
