A Sew Your Stash update is sooo long overdue! It seems like we’ve been busy or sick every single day since my last update, but I still have a lot to talk about!
If you’re new and don’t know what Sew Your Stash is, it is a challenge I started this year to focus on sewing using fabric and supplies from my stash without buying new materials. I am also trying to finish WIPs that have gone unfinished for far to long. There is a facebook group for the challenge full of inspiration and almost 8,000 members!
Since my last update I have been busy making aprons, skirts, a denim rag quilt and more! Check out the video HERE to see what I made!
I also managed to break my serger (watch the video to hear how that happened!). But the most exciting thing that happened is I’m taking back my sewing space! My younger daughter had been sleeping in the sewing room for a couple of months and she has been transitioned back into the same bedroom as my older daughter! This means I have more space and can sew after the kids go to bed!
What have you been working on in the past couple of months? I would love to see pics! You can share them on the Whitney Sews facebook page or on instagram with #WhitneySews

My daughter Skyler has entered a stage where she likes to drop things for fun. This has resulted in countless lost pacifiers at stores, the zoo, and everywhere else. It finally dawned on me that I should make some pacifier... Continue reading →

It’s pretty safe to say that bags with pockets are the most highly requested tutorials! So I am here today to teach you how to make a tote bag with outer pockets. I will have other types of bags and pockets... Continue reading →
It’s finally finished!! I started making a busy book long before I even had kids and now that my daughter is 2 I finally finished it! It was a lot of work, but I’m so happy with how the entire... Continue reading →
Last week someone asked me a question about tote bags in the Sew Your Stash facebook group. I quickly realized that I had never made a tutorial for lined tote bags that did not have boxed corners. So I... Continue reading →
It’s amazing what taking one week off can accomplish! Since my last Sew Your Stash update I took one week away from youTube and found my mojo! I completed several projects, including two WIPs, two costumes, and much more. I... Continue reading →
