Well, I am excited for this new year. I am planning on only sewing from my stash...both my fabric stash and pattern stash.
he goal is to sew the patterns you already own and have not yet sewn, which for me is quite a few. I will have no problem making it to the end of the year doing this, I'm sure. The only exception to this is when I test patterns for designers, but I don't pay for those patterns anyway. The group has themes for each month, and January is women's patterns. I have a lot that I have not made for myself because I tend to make clothes for the kids instead. But, I already have two printed and cut out to start on tonight.
The 100 Item Sewing Challenge: The goal with this group is to make 100 items from your current fabric stash without buying any extra. If fabric is needed (if the pattern calls for 2 yards and you only have 1), then you are allowed to buy the extra. But I'm really hoping to get by with buying as little fabric as possible this year. I have quite a bit of fabric, a lot of which is fleece in 3 totes. I just would like my fabric more manageable and not in different places (drawers, closets, under the bed, stacked up against the wall, etc.).
Here's hoping I can save lots of money this year! :)
