52 Weeks of Sewing

If I had a motto, it would be: "No time like the present to start a new project!"  And I have a crazy idea in mind.  To start 52 projects!

OK, even I am not that crazy, yet since I bought my new sewing machine I have been excited to keep working on projects but have lost a bit of my original enthusiasm.  Where to start?  I have so much fabric around the house, in piles, in bags and boxes in my office closet as well as in my studio.  And patterns, ideas, fragments of ideas and sketches piling up all over the place.

It is time to organize.  It is time to create.
So, welcome to the new series, 52 Weeks of Sewing!  Each week I will be sharing my sewing adventures and misadventures with you.  I've signed up for a Crafty sewing class, I have some patterns picked out, and I am going to get to work.

My plan is to try and sew one new thing a week, but larger projects might span out or overlap several weeks, like this wrap dress.  It's all being made up as I go along.
However, my first project is going to be a simple zippered pouch for storing drawing supplies.  (Because it's always a good idea to start a big project with something small so that you will have a little success right away.)

What have you got in your closet?  Are you ready for 52 Weeks of Sewing yourself?


  1. I'm taking a Craftsy sewing class, too! Can't wait to see what you make!

    1. I am also looking forward to seeing my progress over 52 weeks; hopefully, I get better!
