At home with Mrs H Presenting: The Big November Destashing


Hello lovelies,

Today I want to launch a new theme for November: The Big November Destashing.

I know from our conversations on the facebook page and groups how much you love fabric. And who doesn’t? For most of us, fabric is one of our favourite things to shop for. We go on a ten minute trip to the fabric store to get that one fabric we need to continue our current project and get out three hours later with two bags full of fabric.

When we buy beautiful fabric, we fall in love with the texture, the print or the potential to become something new and amazing, created by ourselves. Other times, let’s admit it, we buy it because it’s on sale and we can’t resist a good offer.

But what’s the point in buying all this fabric if we’re not sewing with it?

So this month we’re going to take advantage of the stay-inside weather and tackle our stash, bust it and make something new.

Here’s the plan:

Week 1: Organise and clean: Enjoy what you have. See fabric from a different perspective.
Week 2: Plan: Design 3-5 new sewing projects. Sketch or use Pinterest to get inspired.
Week 3: Make: Sew and enjoy using the fabric you own
Week 4: Give: Make something for a friend or family member

You can follow and join our challenge here on the blog, or on Facebook and Instagram, but you can also sign up to our The Big November Destashing list to get each week’s challenges and tips right into your inbox.

  1. Great idea! I tried to destash this year (my "enough is enough" challenge...), and I love it. It gives room for new projects (and new fabrics, haha).

    1. Haha, love the "enough is enough" name for a fabric challenge! How is it going this month?

  2. Oh NO, I see a mess happening! hahaha.... when I destash that means I reorganize and I said the next time I reorganize... everything is coming out, getting rid of the carpet and only putting back in the room the stuff I use and love..... sounds like a real project :)

  3. You just KNOW I'll be following along ;-)

  4. Ooh that sounds like such a great idea! Usually I do NaNoWriMo during November, but I'm not feeling it this year so maybe I'll do this instead! :D

    1. Maybe they are somehow compatible? More room in your craft room. More words on your paper? Maybe you could write about fabric and sewing? Would that be too much?
