Before I allow myself to buy new fabric I am determined to sew up some of my stash. And I am determined to finish off my half made/ cut out projects. As I typed up the list in this post, I could see there are enough plans here to keep me sewing for a long time. I seem to have started more projects than I realised.
binbags of inherited fabric.
The tweed is from Bovey Tweed in Devon. I have used a cotton also from the binbags for the waist band facings and pocket linings. I am uncertain as to whether tweed shorts will be a good or bad thing. Let's just say they are a bit of an experiment.
I have pieces of bright pink and orange fleece left over from scarf making almost two years ago. I am using the mitten pattern from Littlle Things to Sew by Liesl Gibson to make Rocket Girl and Little I some mittens.
I have almost finished making a tutu (also from Little Things to Sew) this is for Little I.
I am halfway through making a yellow jersey Staple dress. I lost interest in completing it three months ago! It is gathering dust on my shelf.
I bought a lovely stepweave wool crepe about three years ago and then chickened out of using it! I have cut it out to make a seasonal dress, but it is unlikely to get finished soon.
I seriously need an apron and was planning on using leftover denim from my skinny jeans to cobble one together. Phew...what a list.
I am still planning on making my parka but need to sell a few bits on ebay to get the funds for the fabric!
