My Big Fat Sewing To-Do List!

Being the busy and organized person that I am, I need to make lists.  Just check out my planner and all of those tabs!

Since I've been so busy lately, it has left very little time for sewing.  :(  That means when I have a bit of free time, I definitely want to maximize my productivity.  What better way to do that than a big, fat list of projects!  I've prioritized them into 3 categories, since I'm a nut about my lists.  :)

********************

By the way, about 2 months ago, I published a post with my entire sewing pattern collection.  Although I received a bunch of patterns for free or bought a few with certain design elements to be modified in mind, I would love to sew most of them and make a dent in this list!  I'm going to make sure to check off each pattern as I finish it.  It's a double list!





My Top 3 Projects!
  1. Simple Dress Challenge garment
  2. Peplum tanks
  3. Colette - Hazel (pieces cut)

    7. Bathing suit
    8. Sweater dress: Simplicity 2337 (pieces cut already!)
