January Stashbusting Link Up

Hello Stashbusters!
  Whoohoo! Our first month has flown by in a flurry of plans and quite a bit of productive sewing! Our new Facebook group has exploded with 62 members. We weren't sure what you guys would think of it but obviously it was a good choice. :)  You can still join the group we just closed it so the posts would be private.
We still have the Flickr group going strong as well. Remember it is never too late to join and start using up the stash!

I made four projects that fit under January's Itty Bits Theme, the birthday dress, peanut babies and these two things:

I made a new cover for our bean neck pillow that ripped out and I used up a special itty bit for a padded electronics pouch
The blue was a free sample that came with
my Japanese sewing magazine! 
According to my pledge, I've completed 5 of 35 garments and 4 miscellaneous projects. I also accomplished one of my wishes or goals for the new year by sewing my chiffon blouse from my new Japanese sewing magazine.

What have you been making? Share a link in the comments below! Any stash busting you got done in January is eligible even if it doesn't fit the month's theme! I'm looking forward to seeing what's been made!
See ya in February!

Sounds like a good start to your stash busting goals Em. I've gotten 9 garments sewn from stash and I did a lapped zipper which was a new skill for me.

9! What a great start! And a new skill! What a busy bee!

Just the one item made by me for January (but both kids will be back at school this coming Monday, so watch out for a lot more next month)

Two stash items this month (well the lining was stash as well) a skirt and top. The top qualifies as an Itty Bits as it was left over from my jacket and was less than 1 yard. I have only blogged about the blouse at the moment -

January is all about easing back into it! Every little bit helps!

Love when you can double stash bust! Great job!

I have a couple of links I can give you:
My "itty bits" projects are and
My two finished garments for the month were pants and a skirt, both here:

I went the opposite of "itty bits" and used up some giant pieces of fabric I had in my stash. The velveteen, in particular was taking up a lot of room on my shelf. So bulky.

You got lots done, that's awesome! I got two stash fabrics used up, both in the form of napkins. and I also have a dress and a top I've been trying to work on since December but things keep coming up and getting in the way of sewing, but hopefully they'll be done this month!
