The new year is here and in full swing! Do you want to do some selfish sewing after making gifts for the months leading up to the holidays? Yes? Same here. I want to make a few things for me, nobody else. Never feel guilty about sewing for yourself. It's YOUR hobby and YOUR time. ;)
I got to thinking about all the things I planned on making last year that never happen. :/ This year, I want to have a plan of attack! I decided to make a deadline to kick my rear into gear. Joining a sewing challenge or 2, or 3 will help with this. Fingers crossed!
There are tons of great sewing challenges happening every year. You may have heard of some, and some might be completely new to you (me, too).
I've linked a few below:
Are you going to partake in any of these challenges? I know there are quite a few that I didn't list. If you know of any, share in the comments below. I'm doing the make 9 and #sewtheprecious. I think these will be fun and a good challenge for me.
Now that the holiday hustle is over, life can get back to normal. Whatever "normal" is, right?
Happy New Year!!
Do you make New Year's resolutions? I do easy ones. I tell myself I'll make dinner 5 nights a week, exercise more, give one room a make-over (the main bathroom), simple and doable things. And of course, I fall off the wagon 2 months in. LOL Ahh... life.
Anywho, what fun things did you give and receive for the holidays??
Perhaps you or a loved one received an Apple watch? If so, I have the perfect tutorial you need to scrunchify that watchband. Scrunchify is a technical term btw. ;)
Before we dive in I want to say this is a perfect scrap buster project. Yay for those! You just need a strip of fabric, no stabilizer needed. This is meant to be floppy.
As far as fabric choices, choose something with a small print or a solid. I have made them with knit, quilting cotton, shirting, and they all seem to work great. So, be creative and have fun!
Hi there, I'm Annette and I love eating and sewing. I usually have a cup of coffee or tea with me, but not next to my machine because I'd probably spill it. I am the reason we can't have nice things.
