The What-I’m-Gonna-Sew-Next List

I’ve decided that I have too many things on my proverbial sewing plate.  So yesterday, I spent some time going through my stash of fabric and patterns, in an attempt to make a list of projects so that I can just pick one and move forward without hemming and hawing.  The list will include some non-sewing projects I know I want to do as well, mostly Christmas related.  I’m feeling even more in the Christmas spirit than usual this year, so be prepared for some non-sewing Christmas crafts.

Keep in mind, the lists are not in the order I intend to do these projects.  More of a reminder to myself of things I want to do.

Future Sewing Projects

  1. Butterick 5709 top (use gray & white lacy knit)
  2. Simplicity 1881 short to long dress (use brown/white/gold stripey knit)

Other Miscellaneous Craft Projects

  1. Christmas Frame Trays
  2. Holiday Baking
  3. DIY Snowglobes
  4. Iced Branches
  5. Tree Decorating
  6. Ornament Making
  7. Wreath making

I don’t have pictures of any of those at this point, but when I do, you’ll see them here! 🙂  Frankly, I’ll be lucky to get half of the Christmas craft list done this year.

I probably should get cracking on some of this stuff.  I think the first thing I’ll be working on is number 8, as Elizabeth and I have decided to sew pants together sometime soon.

    Your #10 is also somewhere on my to-do list. I was looking at my stash yesterday too, trying to decide which fabric I can use to make pants. Still not sure. Must resist Hancock. Oh, and I like the sound of “holiday baking” on your miscellaneous list!
