Welcome to my blog for the 2014 Stashbusting Sewalong.

I, Leonie Dukes, commit to sewing at least 2 items a month from stash fabric in 2014. I also commit to not buying any new fabric/patterns/ notions except for those absolutely required to complete a project made from stash items, until there is space in my sewing cupboard to put new items.

I have spent far too much time collecting fabric etc. and far too little actually using any.  This year I am going to reverse the trend, and put the focus of my sewing back where it should be: actually making things.

My focus will be on developing my sewing skills and developing a set of patterns to make basic clothing items for my wardrobe.   I expect lots of things I make to not be quite right, but all of it will help me learn.

Join my on my journey to decrease my stash whilst increasing my knowledge.


  1. Good luck. I am with you on this one this year. Sadly I have no blog (anymore) as then I really wouldnt get any sewing done.
