November Fabric Budget

november-fabric-budget

Another month down and still in the green.  Over the year this experiment has really encouraged me to dig back into my stash, go through scraps, modify ideas and make it work.  It’s refreshing.  It’s hard at the same time.

There have been some gorgeous fabrics that have been released this year and lots of amazing sales.  I have been able to resist.  It really boils down to how long can I keep this going?  Another three months?  Another six months?

Right now my balance going into December is $31.39.  I don’t think that’s realistic for the long term, but definitely a good challenge.  There are plenty of fabrics I could further destash and there are a few commissions in the works.

At this point, I think I continue forward.  Challenge myself to create with what I have and be resourceful.

  1. I am in awe. Shock may be coming as well when my credit card bill comes for Black Friday/Cyber Monday fabric purchases. If not a budget, I at least need to track how much I’m really spending on fabric throughout the year of 2017. Maybe 2018 could be budgeted. Now I feel guilty. Reaching for chocolate. 😉

    1. Do not feel guilty. This project and accountability has been a long time coming. I always said I wanted to work on my stash, I said it every year. That wasn’t working, so I needed a parameter to keep me in check. It’s definitely helped. I would have loved to bought more, it was hard to resist. Track it in 2017 and see how it turns out.
