Good Evening Sewcialites!
Just a quick post to welcome in February and to give you a peek at my sewing plans for the month.
If you missed my January post on the Sew House Seven Toaster Sweater, you can view it HERE. This was a fun and quick project. Great for the advanced beginner sewer.
In continuing with my commitment to sew at least ONE garment a month for myself, I’ve entered into the Pattern Review Active Wear Contest. As a runner, I couldn’t pass up this opportunity! Besides, I’ve been holding on to this pattern for awhile and decided this was the perfect project to use it. Plus, I needed the accountability to make sure that I actually stick to my New Year’s sewing reSEWlution.
My fabric will be active wear knits that I purchased from Fabric Mart during their recent sale. I’m going to combine this look with a pullover knit shirt to provide a little extra warmth on those cool days.
My second project will be a frankenpattern jumpsuit using Simplicity 1158 and Simplicity 8089 using a yummy merlot color stretch velvet knit from Mood Fabrics.
Lastly, I’m hoping to finish up this t-shirt quilt that I may deliver it to a very good friend of mine who has no idea I’m even doing. I can’t wait to see the excitement on her face!
Any special projects on your sewing table?
Be sure to check back in at the end of the month to see the above looks. Until next time lovelies…
