I'm in, but don't have a list of projects just ideas to run off of. I do know that #1 will be finishing the giant crocheted t-shirt rug I'm working on now though. And I know I want to make dd some AG doll clothes & maybe some food for her dolls too. And I want to sew myself an abaya or two as well - would love to have those done before July. Maybe I'll get an abaya done for dd too as an Eid gift.
Mostly I want to attack the 4 totes of fabric I have that are taking up space in my storage room.
1. Crocheted t-shirt rug for living room
I'm tentatively joining... I've had the desire to do this for a couple of years, but haven't made more than a few things a year. I really want to spend a little more time in 2014 pursuing my own little interests.
I'd like to do a few paintings for the home and sew a few things for myself... and play with all of my pinterest fantasies...
I did this a few years ago but bailed after 3 months. I need to make attempt again because my studio is overrun with half finished projects. Going to mull over a list for a bit and then update.
-finish DD3's hobby horse
-repair DD1 and DD2's hobby horses (they both broke their sticks, need to replace them)
-make 2 more gnomes to complete DD4's set
-make Waldorf doll for DD4's 1st b-day
-sew upcycled sweater throw pillow
-sew upcycled dress shirt throw pillow
-sew at least 50 sets of diapers for Teeny Tears (100 diapers total, this is a service project to work on w/ DD1)
-sew 3 walker caddies for local retirement home (service project to work on w/ DD)
I am in.
1. get baby out. lol.
2. make a cover stitch machine cover for my mom.
3. make a potato sack purse for my sister.
4. make a sewing machine cover and serger cover for myself.
5. finish my thrummed mitten.
6. make another thrummed mitten to finish a different pair.
Ohhh you know what I really really want to make? The knitting shop has this yarn that is soooo stinking cool. It is cream wool with felted flowers in it that they knit into a scarf. Insanely expensive (like $30 for the skien) - but perhaps the cutest thing I have ever seen. Perhaps I should pick up a skein and make it for myself if I haven't had the baby by the next time I go to town.... Might make the wait more bearable. I think it is about the quickest knit ever.
First 4 days of the year, first four projects knocked out. I need to keep up this momentum as I aim to have 52 done before Dec 1 as I really petered out last year.
#1 Duvet cover for my bed. I used a sheet set and then added another coordinating flat sheet for the backing. I got a new wool comforter for Christmas and needed a new duvet cover as my old one was too small.
#2 Unplastic wrappers for bowls.
#3 Belt for the little guy to keep up his pants.
#4 Some tiny knit hats for gifts.
Hi ladies- I have been working on finishing my thrummed mitten. Getting closer :)
Stopped at the knitting shop to pick up that gorgeous yarn and I must have looked at the price wrong before. It was actually $53... and it took 2! So since that is clearly out of my budget I am trying to muster up the motivation to make my own version. I have lots of random roving bits and I could definitely spring for a skien of cream wool....
Momsteader- so productive and so cute! Especially the cutie under the comforter :)
