The new year has kicked off with a bang and lots of sewing. For the first month of January I’ve already sewn 5 items and it’s been an awesome experience so far.
In the first week of January I finished sewing up the last pillows for our new couches on the patio. Read the blogpost about those here. I still need to finish the covers for the seats, but I haven’t had time yet.
In the second week our challenge for the 52 weeks of sewing was to make something from the last fabric we purchased. I doubled up and incorporated the 2018rtwfast by making this top for myself.
For week three I decided to start my path to make well fitting jeans. They turned out to fit pretty well and have been worn a lot. I plan on sewing at least 2 more pairs before winter hits here in South Africa. Read all about my jean making experience in this post.
Also in week three, we had a birthday party to attend. The birthday girl already had a pair of my “Paris nighties” but had grown out of them. She was delighted with her new set of pajamas.
The week four of 52 challenge was to make something for a boy. Well I have two. I’ve been hoarding a piece of cotton lycra with the cutest camping pictures and a grow with me romper pattern. When I make this again, I definitely need to add an easier way for access during nappy changes. But other than that I think it turned out pretty well.
I almost can’t believe I finished 2 items for myself AND I have not been tempted to buy anything 🙂
Week 5 / February sewing
I’ve already completed 2 items for the week 5 challenge. But it is for a pattern test, so I will only blog about that after the new pattern has been released.
