#SewMyStyle!

January 2, 2017

So it's 2017, and I'm endeavouring to do something I've meant to do for, oh, maybe 4 years now?!  (I excel at procrastination).  I am going to start using this space to share more of me, and the creating I do on a day to day basis.  This will mostly be adventures in garment sewing, which seems to be what I enjoy doing most these days, but it also includes things for my kids, home decor, and a FEW handmade gifts (only for the VERY deserving - ha!!)

 

In order to motivate me to properly document and share, and hopefully also create a routine for blogging, I decided this past November to join a year long sew-along.  This particular sew-along is being hosted by BlueBird Fabrics in the UK, and includes 1 pattern per month being focused on.  I figured that should be do-able for my current lifestyle, considering the minimum I generally sew for myself is at least 1 item a month.  

 

The first pattern we're sewing is the Toaster 2 (pattern here), by Sew House Seven.  I bought both versions as a pack, because I actually think I'm going to like the Toaster 1 even better, but the 2 looks nice and versatile in it's own right, plus I have nothing like it in my pattern collection.

 

 

I *think* I have fabric already chosen for this (it's a cool quilted knit that seems stable and cozy) - but I know myself well enough to acknowledge this may change.  OR I will make it in that fabric, it won't work, and I will remake it in something I like better.  That's how I roll.

 

To me, this is kind of all a big experiment (the whole blog thing) - so bear with me as I find my writing legs.  

 

Happiest of New Years, and all the best to you!
