I have begun working on my Year of Projects!
In my quest to make clothes from patterns, I am starting out with simple store bought patterns for non clothing.
I need lots of practice.
I would love to take my local sewing studio’s Patterns 101 class, but the 6 week class doesn’t work with my schedule at this time.
The first item I have made is from Butterick B5767 (Sewing room essentials).
I chose the ironing board organizer as the first project.
I say I need lots of practice because when I was all done and turned it right side out, I realized I had sewn the back pocket on so the wrong side was facing.
Since this is going to be the pocket for the iron cord, I just left it (won’t bother me at all since it can’t really be seen).
**Note to self, check all pieces are sewn correctly before sewing together**
Of course, that is easier said than done as I have found sometimes my brain doesn’t see/comprehend how the steps will end up the finished product clearly…
I love the fabric and had purchased it from a clearance section with no real plan in mind.
I’m sure I have enough to make something else from the pattern.
Here is to practice, practice, practice.
Hopefully someday I’ll be able to make all the clothing patterns I have purchased and look at fondly 😉
Have a good week!
