Munch crunch

At the weekend, we often try to eat dinner with the kids - family bonding and all that. But eating early leaves me with the 9 o'clock munchies. Luckily, at Waitrose I discovered a solution.

They're really really good. It's a good thing my hands are often otherwise occupied in the evenings, or I'd be the size of a house.

This week's efforts include a bag for a present I couldn't manage to wrap in paper.
I'm not too keen on the fabric, but hopefully the little girl in question won't mind it.

What do you do with the stuff from your stash that you don't really like?

Honestly, I usually give it away. Because one man's trash, is another man's treasure. ...and then I don't have to look at it any more.

i make bags for birthday presents - same as you!
i think one of these days i'll weed my stash and get rid of ones i don't like anymore, but honestly, sometimes it's handy to have it around for certain projects.
btw, the bag is super cute.

I've got some of that fabric too! I made party favour bags from it for Amy's party last year - they were very popular so you can be sure that the little girl receiving this will be thrilled to bits.

I'm with Sarah - straight to the Thrift store it goes!

I've only started to get rid of my stash by giving it away. I'm in total declutter mood as of late!

Super cute bag. How could she not like it?

I've been de-cluttering too. A lot of my unwanted went to my daughter's play school and they were thrilled. Although I must admit I sometimes go in and think to myself "that 3 year old really doesn't appreciate the quality of that print!"

Oh well it's still a great little bag! And I just take my undesirables to the Thrift Store, or give them to my kids to use. They love hacking up things.

I think it would be cool (and challenging) to trade your ugly fabric for someone elses ugly fabric and have to use it in a project. I'm not sure, it could either end up good, or really bad, with an army of ugly projects.

I have a big barrel of fabric in the sewing room for the boys to cut into. I try not to put too much girlie fabric in there, but they cut and tell me where to sew and make all kinds of weird things from stuffed animal holders to eye-patches. :o) I give the ugly stuff to the thrift store.

I eat mine. It gets rid of the unwanted stash and munchie problem in one fell swoop.

I usually cut it up into smaller sections & do something with a patchwork design :)

I've tried those munchies and they're so yummy!!!
I like the bag...especially the pink lining.

Those Waitrose snacks look positively dangerous - I very much doubt I could avoid eating the whole lot in one go.

As for unwanted fabric I'm afraid it just sinks lower and lower in the drawer under the bed where the stash hides and occasionally pokes its head out to scare me with how big it is getting.
