We are thrilled to participate in Lisa Fulmer’s  Craft Your Stash Book Tour and Giveaway!
The term “stash” is quite familiar to any crafter, sewer, quilter, or scrapbooker. In fact, if you are true to your passion you probably have more stuff in that stash than any person could possibly use in one lifetime. We here at SHWS are always on the lookout for great stash-busting inspiration no matter the medium. Well look no more, our friend and crafter extraordinaire Lisa Fulmer has just released her book, Craft Your Stash. It is chockful of wonderful projects and inspiration to help you in using fabric, paper, stamps, stickers, buttons, bling, and so much more. So, don’t delay, order your copy today, you wont be disappointed. Lisa also provides suggestions how storing and organizing your stash.
Our SHWS Riff on Stash Busting
We tried our own stash-busting efforts and riffed on a couple of Lisa’s projects. Of course, we opted to use fabric because we have loads and loads of the stuff!
Jennifer:  I took on a variation of Lisa’s heart-themed door plaque, but I opted for a pair of doorknob hearts as I’ve been known to decorate my guest room door with a welcoming gift of a fabric heart. I think Lisa and I must be on the same wavelength with the idea of embellishing doors with hearts–it is, after all, an expression of loving welcome.
Lisa's hearts
I’ve got two special people I want to celebrate with a handmade gift and so I made a pair of hearts. If you’d like to bust your stash and make heart pillows, well, click the Pattern tab above and scroll to the Jack Sparrow Valentine pattern I posted there a couple years ago.

 Laura:  I was inspired by the Mosaic Scrapbook project in Lisa’s book.

My immediate thought was to make a toddler friendly Memory/Matching Game Board:  bright, colorful, and portable! I also took advantage of this opportunity to use chalkboard fabric for the cover of the game board.

Search through your stash for lots of cute kid -type images.

Hope this will entertain a little one on a long car ride.
Easy clean up too–just wipe the chalk markings off the fabric.

  1. Yep, I have many drawers of crafty stuff…not to begin talking about the fabric that is stashed in nearly every room of our house. (I tell myself that some of it is “artfully displayed”, but it’s really stored in plain sight.) This book looks great, and would help me get some use from the treasures I have tucked away.

  2. As you ask that question, I feel like you are peeking in my window! Of course, I am a hoarder of crafty supplies! I love it all and need a full week of uninterrupted time to create. If I had a chef, maid and dog walker, I’d be in heaven….plus, I need that book! Please help!

  4. Thanks, this book looks like a great way to sift through my stash and use some of the “treasures” I’ve collected over the years.
