I'm in the throes of spring de-cluttering and de-stashing. Clothing and fabric. When I was going through my bins of fabric, I organized and sorted (see dots), and put some aside for immediate future projects and some to give to my two young nieces who are learning to sew.
I thrifted this pillowcase a year or two ago with the intention of making it into a skirt. I had forgotten about it and as I picked up each piece of fabric or pillowcase or sheet, I asked myself, "Why did I buy this? Do I love this? Am I going to use this? If yes, how soon?" The pillowcase was thrown into the "make immediately or get rid of pile." And, guess what! It was made immediately into the pillowcase skirt it was destined to become.
There are a few more things I've already made from the "make immediately or get rid of pile." (It feels really good.) But you should see the "get rid of" pile. That's enormous.
