As the new year starts to roll in, I look back at what I've accomplished this past year.
96 items sewn up this year!
Miss K acquired the most with 51, Me at 22, poor Mr. T at 13, and crafts/gifts were only 10.
Stash from 2013 and before sewn up this year: 50.5
Fabric Yards purchased in 2014: 200.75
Yards sewn/sold/gave-away in 2014: 218.25
Favorite makes for each of us:
December - Elephant Renfrew. It wears so nice and comfortable and I love how it looks. K tells me I need to stop wearing it so much... oops.
Miss K: It is hard to pick only 2 for this girl. I really love some of her makes this year.
May/June - Jalie Swim top and shorts. This suit is the best fitting K has ever had and it has really held up to swimming all summer long. We both love it. She is needing a bigger size now and I still have to make one for myself.
July - Red Sundress, McCall's M6948. I love the long maxi look of this dress and K is smitten with it as well.
July - Vintage PJs, McCall's 3041. The look of these is awesome. Sewing them was fun. T likes them. I smile whenever he wears them.
August - unblogged Jalie 3242 Boxer Briefs. They are just too cute!
Least favorite makes for each of us:
March - Kwik Sew 3342 Pajama set. The shorts never made it past the first day because they were really weird and the top was just uncomfortable. The elastic made me itch and it was short.
December - Darcy Boxer shorts. These were too big and poofy. Not my style.
March - Oliver +S Hopscotch Skirt. K did not like this make at all. It looks awkward on her and is poofy in all the wrong places. It is cute on the hanger though.
Ottobre Frozen top 1/2 knit, 1/2 cotton woven. K hated this top with the mixed fabrics and middle rolled hem. I was able to change it up to all knit in the end but she claims this was her least favorite of all year.
Mr. T: none! He liked all of his makes this year :)
Resolution for 2015:
- Start using my pattern stash.
- I will sew at least 1 new pattern each month.
- Start using up my magazine stash.
- I will sew at least 1 new Burda or Ottobre each month
- Use more fabric stash - don't buy as much new.
- I will use at least 1 fabric from stash each month.
- Sew more for me.
- I will sew at least 1 make for me each month.
There you have it,
1 new pattern,
1 new Burda/Otto,
1 fabric stash, and
1 me make each month in 2015
That is what I resolve to do.
So, how did your year turn out? What were your favorite makes? Did you sew as much as you planned on this year? Do you plan any new resolutions for the new year?
I wanted to thank you for following me, viewing my makes, commenting on my posts. It means so much to me and I love being part of this wonderful sewing community.
