I started this blog 2 years ago and I've really enjoyed interacting with so many of you in the sewing community, and learning loads of new things. One thing I love about this blog is that it pushes me to keep trying something different. This year, I'm looking forward to quite a few things, and I'm sure there will be some surprises as well. Here's what I have planned:
I love a good swap! I've got one planned and even have a discount available, but you'll have to wait until 2017 for all the details.
Even when I don't get around to sewing all the bags, this club is always fun! It's always exciting awaiting each month's pattern reveal. This year, there is a new designer: Celine from Blue Calla will be first up. You have a couple more days to sign up for the early bird discount. Check out the website for more details.
I have a couple video tutorials in the works for you, but they're going to be a bit different. I'm not going to spoil the surprise for you though, you'll have to wait and see!
I won a bra making class and I bought a couple kits to get started, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm making it my goal this year to make one. I'd also like to try out one of Beverly Johnson's Craftsy classes.
This year I'd really love to make a quilt. I have some really great Craftsy classes, like this Elizabeth Hartman one, that goes great with her Fancy Forest Quilt pattern, which I also have.
I picked up some quilting books so I think I'll have to make a few quilts, or at least some decorative pillows for special quilt blocks.
Ok, this one is more of a goal, rather than something I have planned. I have a sewing room with a closet full of fabric, but in the last couple of months, my organized stash has been rather unruly. Before I get started on any big project, I really need to buckle down and get my space less cluttered.
This one is another goal. I recently bought a new camera and I know I need to improve my pictures, so that I can bring even better tutorials to the blog. It also helps when you make an awesome bag and can actually take a decent picture of it. My friend Natalie of Hungry Hippie Sews wrote a really helpful blog post about taking better pictures, so I'm using that as my guide.
Surprises and unknown turns. Creativity gives us freedom to explore new avenues and accept new opportunities. Is there something you're hoping to see here? What are you looking forward to in 2017?
