CraftApple Stashbusting tip#1

If I have enough of a fabric to make 2 of whatever project I’m working on, then I need to make 2 and use up that fabric…  Here are 2 patchfolios.


And if I have enough of a fabric to make 4 drawing cases


Several coordinating fat quarters from Amy Butler’s Belle and 1 yard construction-themed decorator fabric.  Gone.  Now that makes me feel good, especially since Amy Butler’s Lotus line is here and I can’t wait to get my hands on some of that.  Look at this bag that Megan made.  Can I copy you?  Please?

And a happy early birthday to my nephew!  One of these drawing cases is coming your way big boy!

I think I’m a bit drawing cased and patchfolioed out right now.  I gotta sew something else.

  1. Girl, be my guest – I’m so pleased that you like it! Don’t you love that fabric? And see, you’ve “earned” it by taking such a large chunk out of your stash. 🙂 Speaking of which, the Belle drawing case is particularly fetching. Keep up the good work!

  2. I love your your Art book idea. I really wanted to make one, but what to do with it!? Seeing it used with the magazine and legal pad I instintly thought of using for the classes I’m taking. Thanks so much for the inspirtation.

  3. Great job on the stash reduction. The Amy Butler fabric is gorgeous and thanks for the link to the new Lotus line, I hadn’t looked until now, oh, temptation. Once again you do beautiful work.

  4. Thank you for the tutorial on the artfolio. I tweaked it a little to use Crayola Doodling markers–

    I love seeing your work!

    Thanks again.

  5. Thank you so much for sharing. I made each of my grandkids the little artist drawing cases and they are a huge hit! Hope you will do a tut on the “patchfolios”. You are AWESOME!

  6. hello i am from Italy,i like your style!!i like apples too!!i think your cards are very beautiful..please visit me at my i’m new on the blog’sworld!!

  7. I love these! I made something similar for my paint brushes. I just have one question, did you use anything like posterboard on the pocket section? My girls would love to have something like this for church and it would be easy for them if the pocket side was flat.

  8. wow!!! those are amazing!!! any chance you could point me to a tutorial???? I would love to try my hand at making these!!! my sons would love to have one of these!!
    many thanks and keep up the great/inspiring work
