Stash Report - Week 47

I have no pictures to show for it, so you'll just have to trust me that I used all this fabric in the past week! I gave some birthday FQs in my bee, made another pet scrap bag, and cut out 12 kits to make fabric gift bags. Each Christmas, our bee makes welcome bags for a local shelter that contain basic supplies for a woman coming into the shelter who may only have the clothes on her back. Last year, we started making the bags from fabric so they are reusable, and my stash is a great source for the bag fabric! This year, I pulled all 12 kits from the floral tub of fabric...and hardly made a dent in it! Guess that means there is plenty for a few years to come. 

Fabric added this week: 0 yards
Fabric used this week: 9 1/4 yards

Fabric added year to date: 46 3/4 yards
Fabric used year to date: 110 yards

Net fabric used: 63 1/4 yards

No changes on pattern usage, so I am still at a -3 for the year, but I am hoping to change that in the next couple weeks as I work on some doll clothes for Jenna's dolls and teacher gifts. 

Hope you had a great week with your stash!

I like the idea of the welcome bags for the shelter. Our guild often collects travel sized/hotel provided shampoos, soaps, etc for the local shelter. These bags could be a good addition. What size do you make the bags? Just large enough for these toiletries? Or larger to carry perhaps some clothing items as they move on?

Way to go!! I still need to cut out the cow quilt... I think that I will probably end the year in the hole again... sigh
