And now that we’ve assessed our sewing from 2016, we want to share our sewing goals for 2017 with you! Just like our State of the Blog 2016 post, all of us are contributing today.
If last year was about new things, this year is going to be a mix of new and continuing! My plan is to continue meeting sewing bloggers in person (at least 3 more!) continue sewing for Mr. Skirt Fixation (he’s requested pants…scary!) and continue participating in Project Sew It.
As for new, there’s a huge new thing happening with a baby due soon! So I’m going to be blogging a lot about baby sewing. I have so many ideas and things planned, I’ve already named this new category Handmade Baby. Now to settle on the baby’s name…
This year I anticipate a move forward into ‘adult life’, and that may or may not include more time away from home, and less time sewing. I still want to do crafting, and maybe some more detailed embroidery, but I’m not limiting myself to specific goals this year, since I don’t know what will be reasonable to accomplish. My over-arching goal, I think, is to force myself to try new things, no matter how scary they seem (And also not to sprain my hand sewing on buttons for mom, cause I know I’ll still be doing that XD)
As I have started high school, I will be a lot busier this year, which means less time for sewing and things like that… But I do plan on joining Mom in Project Sew It, partly because my wardrobe is very lacking. I’m really exited to be doing this, and plan on making a lot of it purple and gray.
I want to sew a quilt for the new baby. I also want to sew more clothes for myself. And I have some ideas for making new things for my doll.
How about you, do you have any sewing goals for 2017?
