So many projects, so little time…

When it comes to sewing my eyes are definitely bigger than my stomach, with only two weeks to go until the handmade fair at hampton court and a month until the ally pally knitting and stitching show I am feeling overwhelmed by the amount of sewing I would need to do to justify a new purchase!  (Being swayed by a 20% bank holiday offer at Ray Stitch didn’t help!)

So, when Marissa from Sewaholic posted her three things fall sewing plan I was inspired to take it slowly and create a plan rather than feeling overwhelmed!  So despite having about 10 projects I want to write on my list, I am going to go for 3 and see how I go, so here goes

Project 1: Dinosaur cape for my son Ralph

Dynamite Dinosaur Cape Rawr

Bought pattern and fabric a bit to late for a kiddy festival we were going to and didn’t have a chance to make in time –  it’s a super lovely pattern looking forward to making this for my son Ralph who is 4, I hope he likes it

Project 2: Spotty Casual Dress Simplicity 1800

Have had this on my list for a while after I saw some lovely examples on pinterest, see simplicity 1800 here.  Bought some lovely cotton spotty fabric from Ray Stitch, it’s a little nutty so let’s see how this turns out!!!  I think I will fo for the slightly longer sleeves

Project 3: Casual trousers Vogue 8961

This isn’t a new project but a UFO that I need to finish… it’s a dark navy and white light wool type fabric which I threw together, it’s my first pair of trousers and I couldn’t wait until after having a baby to do my cutting out so I cut a size 18 when I had a slight baby bump thinking it would fit me sometime after having the baby.  The good news is, I’ve been exercising the last few months so this UFO is a little too big.  I need to do something with it and finish this project!  Pattern is here

black and white trouser fabric black and white troucers

Will let you know how I am getting on over the coming weeks and try to fit in a little every week!

Right of to it!!!
