I keep my pattern stash updated there as it's easy to sort by company, category or both and decide what I should sew next. I like both sewing the popular things with tons of reviews and sewing the potential "sleeper" pattern with no reviews. So I was not happy about finding patterns that aren't in the log because I use that more often than my physical patterns to decide on a project.
So I printed out the list and will go through them sometime in the next week. I sorted by pattern name (you can't sort by 'type') because I should be able to then quickly go through and check things off.
Also, for my February MAGAM project I'm thinking a vest. I like vests...and I want a vest...My two patterns I'm deciding between are McCall's 6149 (view C) and Simplicity 1499 (view C).
Also, I cannot stop looking at the weird hip wrap that was a part of the 10-2013 US edition of Burda Style Magazine.
It's a bit weird.
I like it.
I would make it using stash fabric...I have a cut of flannel, a cut of some heavy black fabric (twill?) that I got from the remnant bin at Hancock and some faux suede. It can't take that much fabric...
I mean, what's to lose?? We all know I am very good at laughing at myself and then moving on to something else! :)
Not much sewing will be happening today. Even though I planned ahead and picked up a rotisserie chicken for dinner tonight, my daughter needs help with precalc and when there is any sort of homework help going on between her and I, boy-oh-boy. She has already told me I should never be a teacher. ;-)
I hesitate to lay out plans because then I want to (quickly) diverge. But I'm thinking in the coming week I'll be sewing my BurdaStyle magazine pattern (that I traced!!), this hip wrap and perhaps a plain white (knit) top.
Did I mention I scored BIG at Hancock the other day?? I happened to stop in for a Butterick pattern and spotted a knit fabric on the spot the bolt table that I liked the last time I was there for the stb sale. Well the dang fabric was $.69/yard!!! So I went back and grabbed every knit that I liked. There were no "good" wovens (I bet that wool got snatched up quickly!). And now, I'm upset I didn't grab that khaki colored cotton sateen!
Anywho, I ended up with 6 1/3 yards of white cotton knit(SCORE!), around 2 1/4 yard of the green heathered knit I was interested in, almost 2 yards of a purple/black argyle knit and about 2 3/4 yards of a funky red plaid knit for...$10!!! TOTAL!!
So expect a few white tops around here! :)
