Sewing Stats for 2015
Yay! My favorite time of year! I love seeing my sewing stats and reading about everyone else’s!
I’ve been keeping up on a spreadsheet this year and it tells me I sewed a total of 173.75 yards of fabric and $910.01 worth of material!
It’s no surprise to me that MissK and I dominate this category. However, I was quite surprised to see that I made 61 things for myself this year and 60 for MissK. One of my goals was to sew more things for me and I am glad I reached that goal.
I’m not surprised at all that Jalie and Ottobre dominate my sewing pattern usage. This next year I would like to sew more from the Big 4 as well as Burda patterns.
Another thing that doesn’t surprise me is that I sewed mainly with Jersey fabrics. I decided to lump together Cotton Lycra, Rayon Jersey, and Poly Spandex. I just love sewing with knits and all of us love to wear them.
This chart surprised me a bit as I thought that tops would have been a much higher percentage; also, I didn’t realize I sewed so much underwear! lol. My goal this next year is to work on more pants and dresses.
Can you believe I sewed 29 things in December! I was very surprised at that. Taking the month off in November really helped me get my mojo back. Other than December, I am pretty consistent each month in sewing about 11 things.
So. Looking forward.
I hope to remain consistent with my sewing. I want to sew more patterns from the Big 4 and from my Burda magazines. I will continue to sew more for myself. I will work on sewing more pants (jeans) and dresses too. I'm not going to make any set resolutions this year. I won't be going on a fabric diet or a pattern restriction. I'll join contests as they align with what I'm sewing. I want 2016 to be less stressful so I'm not going to place any limits or goals upon myself. How about you? Was 2015 a good year for you? What do you hope 2016 brings?
Goodbye 2015 and Hello 2016!! May this year be a great one for all of you!
