193 days…

Got started on 3 projects today.

First was the lavender bamboo/cotton knit (see The Fabric Inventory) which I decided to make into a twist front tank top. It’s cut and ready to be sewn. Took me FOREVER to figure out what I wanted to do with it, lol.

Next, I used the brown slub jersey knit to cut out the pieces for a cute tiered top. Been wanting to make this for a while actually.

After that I decided to use up some more of a remnant to make another tank top. The fabric is a purple floral burn-out knit. It’s really pretty and the best part is that it was $1/yard! The tank top has a bubble hem and was supposed to have a lace contrast on the top but the fabric looks pretty lacey so I’m just going to double it. It’s kind of sheer so I think it’s a good idea.

So hopefully I can get these done by some time tomorrow. Then I’ll have 2 fabrics gone so I’m keeping a good pace. 193 days to go!

Took forever to organize all that fabric and remnants. Still a little messy but at least I can get to my yardage. Anyway, while I was organizing I was thinking of giving myself a challenge of sorts by setting a deadline for finishing my projects.

I’m thinking of getting all the fabric I have as of today made into clothes, accessories, and other things by the end of the year. Sounds like a long time but I have a bunch of fabric lol. I’ll document all my projects here.

Made a list of all my fabric in the pages section. There’s about 33 pieces of yardage so I really have my work cut out for me cause that doesn’t include my remnants.

So here we go! 194 days to get 33 pieces of yardage made into clothing and/or accessories! Wish me luck!

Back in the game…

Wow, has it really been a whole month since I’ve posted? That last migraine I had turned out to not be the only one. I had two more in the two weeks after that one. Not a good month for me! Looks like I need to read my food labels more carefully.

Work got pretty crazy as well. They let the woman who puttogether the linen routes go for too many no-call-no-shows so now that’s my job. It wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t also have to do all the mending and run the ironer. Lots of stress and 11-hour days! Hopefully it starts to get better.

Anyways, finally got a chance to post (and also the WordPress iPod app is working again!). I’ve had a list of projects I want to start and also finish but I went to my fabri area and found it a mess! My boyfriend has this nasty habit of piling all my fabric/notions/books/patterns/jewelry making supplies all willy-nilly on top, under, and in between my stacks of fabric. Quite irratating! Maybe if I get some of these projects done, the fabric would be in my closet on hangers rather than in stacks, haha.

So my first mission is to get all my fabric organized. I’ll get before and after pics up here when I can get to an actual computer.

Happy Sewing, everyone!
