Giving myself a sewing dare!

While doing the last post I realised that I use the same pattern way too many times. So I’m giving myself a dare:

  • Go through all my patterns and chuck the ones I will never ever make (due to impulse buying)
  • Divide the remaining ones into two piles: ‘Done’ and ‘To do’
  • Use each ‘To do’ pattern at least once before starting on another version of the same pattern. (Note: I still have 2 Banksia cut out and ready to sew)
  • Go through fabric stash before buying new fabric.Β (Note: I just bought two new fabrics today *facepalm*)
  • Also: I really should stop buying patterns while I still have so many to make (Note: I ordered two new ones today *facepalm*)

I’ll keep you posted on the progress!

    • Ooooh that’s so sweet! You are mistaken about one thing though: I’m not experienced πŸ™‚ I started sewing 6 months ago because I needed something to do but I love it and my goal is to get better πŸ™‚
