2018 Make Nine

2018 Make Nine

Okay...I wasn't AT ALL planning on doing a make nine this year. ...I mean I made two off of 2017 and 2018 is going to be one of the busiest years ever!

Alas...I'm a goal oriented person and apparently enjoy feeling defeated at the end of the year...😉 (Don't worry! It actually doesn't bother me too much! Lol) 

But before we get to that; let's reminisce on last year's list.

2017 Make Nine List

//  7. Vogue 9201 was completed. Read about it HERE or watch the video HERE. // 9. Jumpsuit: A jumpsuit was also made! Read about it HERE or watch the video HERE. \\

 

I feel as if my 2017 list was haphazardly thrown together. Even though I started planning it in early December of 2016.

  • I don't sew bags so why did I put two on the list? ("Workout/Gym bag" & "Yoga mat carrying bag")
  • When I first started sewing I sewed quite enough aprons. (They are perfect to practice on!) But now...they don't bring me much joy. So I was never inspired to make "Adorable Aprons"...
  • Thanks to my recent thrifting triumphs I'm no longer lacking for "Relaxed fitting pants". Who can say no to $1-$2 lounge pants? ...Not me! lol

I'm actually stoked to start digging in the stash and thinking over the different pattern and fabric ideas! 

I feel as if it going to be a exciting whirlwind of a year! But hopefully this plan; along with the themes in the (awesome!) sewing group Sew Alongs & Sewing Contests will keep me making time for sewing! 

Speaking of themes...January's is Coats, Coverings, Capes and Cardigans. Perfect for the Trench Coat wouldn't you say?
