Summer Sewing Plans

5 May

I’m not sure I dare write this post but feel like I’ve been challenged (in a very nice way) to do so by Sarah at FairyFace Designs.  She really just wants to see what you’ll be sewing this summer.  I thought it would be an interesting exercise for me to make and list and then see how I do.  So here goes:

  1. I’ve signed up for Kids Clothes Week Challenge (KCWC) which is next week – just noticed that the blog post title includes the words Spring 2011, is that allowed in a post about summer sewing?  My plans include sewing more shorts (previous pairs seen in this post) for my girls using this pattern
  2. Finish the Kaffe Fassett handkerchief corner quilt (please bear in mind this has been on the go for approximately 6 years!)
  3. Finish 4 more pillowcase dresses for Dress a Girl Around the World
  4. Make myself a bag using the Runaround bag pattern by Anna at Noodlehead, I think I might spend more time choosing the fabric than making the bag!
  5. Sew a bike basket for my daughters 4th birthday next month
  6. Sew more Big Butt Baby Pants for my boy as he has almost grown out of the ones I made last year
  7. Make myself a top
  8. Make an Amy Butler ditty bag for my boy, the girls already have one each
  9. Finish the t-shirt appliqués I started this week!

I think that might have to be it for now, it’s certainly enough to keep me busy for a while, also I need to bear in mind that school holidays might mean I don’t have so much time to sew…

I’d love to know what you’ll be sewing and if you don’t usually, why not find one thing to do?  As I finish writing this it’s pouring with rain outside – not so summery today 🙁
