Remember my last list of projects? I made it back in 2012. I’ve been updating it as I can cross things off the list, but let’s face it, some of the projects just aren’t ever going to get done – I’ve lost interest. I think it’s time for a new list!
I might even try to put these in the order I plan to work on them! Crazy right? You’re all on the floor laughing, aren’t you? I don’t blame you.
Butterick 4571 – nice burgundy crushed panne velvet base with a white rose print velvet for the contrast. Trim will still be gold. I am making this for my mother-in-law to wear to an upcoming Renaissance Fair in October!
Simpliticy 4059 – a red paisley brocade for the top, possibly a gauzy shirt underneath, and the pants. I am making this for my father-in-law to wear to the same Renaissance Fair! They are going to be looking mighty snazzy!
Settlers of Catan dress – Simplicity 1356; I have the fabric and it’s already cut out
Avengers dress – Simplicity 1418; I have the fabric and it’s already cut out
5. Star Wars skirt -I have fabric and a pattern, but no pictures or numbers at the moment.
Pajama pants – I have at least two pairs cut, and I know I’m going to need to buy cheap flannel on Black Friday, so time to use up what I’ve got!
7. Simplicity 0577 – Cynthia Rowley skirt, but not sure what fabric to use yet.
8. Quilt – I’ve been saying for about a year that I want to make a quilt, and I have a solid idea of what I want to make in my head (I even have some fabric) … it just keeps falling to the bottom of my list.
Somewhere in there, I have plans to decorate and coordinate a Harry Potter themed Halloween party, and organize the sewing room. I started this past weekend on the reorganization because this:
And from a different perspective:
Do you see a sewing machine in here? No. That’s because it’s downstairs still from the craziness that was DragonCon prep. In all likelihood, I will have a hard time being completely upstairs until I have a small tv up there to watch while I sew. But in the meanwhile, I am going to get the room prepped. I’ve made a lot of progress since I took these pictures, but I’m not ready to share the results until I get everything DONE.
I’m also on a bit of a video game binge at the moment … last year I think I returned to games after DragonCon, too. I’m playing WoW again, since I never played Panderia. And I’m eagerly awaiting the upcoming expansion to that as well as the new Civilizations title, Beyond Earth (due out on 10/24). I think I will likely wait to start any more costumes until 2015, though I promise my head is already brimming over with ideas. I suspect that once again Halloween will be a day where I get lazy and wear one of my existing costumes – at the moment I am thinking Hades.
I want to add at least one Christmas craft project to the list, but not sure what yet. Maybe a wreath of some kind?? I had a ton of fun making these wine glasses a while back, and this decoration, but been there, done that. Let me know if you have suggestions!! 😀
