Sewing plans – 2017

Happy New Year!

I started my sewing plans for 2017 with a kick start. I spend New Years Eve making stamps and decorating t-shirts and fabric with Ieke (my 6 year old) and my mum.

The fabric of my Toaster Sweater 2 and the birthday dress of Ella (and Ieke’s very similar dress 🙂 ) were made.
After dinner I was so tired and I was afraid I couldn’t keep my eyes open till 12. So I just kept going. Ironing (so much fabric!), cutting out the Toaster Sweater pieces and tracing the Saunio Cardigan pieces. Pretty pleased with myself for keeping myself awake, gheghe.

Earlier I made a (analog) list of the garments I want to make this year. Because of Sew My Style, it’s pretty long already! (do not panic – do not panic – DO NOT PANIC)
I just repeat to myself this year has 12 months as every other year so I just should begin and see how it goes. Right? Right. (OMG)

There are a few patterns at Sew My Style I’m not really thrilled about, and to be a conscious sewer (and realistic one, because I can spend my money just once), I’ve replaced them with patterns I already have.
