For years now I’ve wanted to consistently make my own clothing. I have saved a bunch of sewing tutorials and other ideas on Pinterest. I also had a 2020 goal to do an upcycled wardrobe project. That never happened because I was quite creatively paralysed during the pandemic last year (thank goodness that’s over now!)
I had more #memade garments as a goal this year, and after being gifted with a membership to Seamwork, it’s really going to happen! My sister and I have decided to work “together” on making one piece of clothing a month, and Seamwork is currently running their twice annual workshop Design Your Wardrobe.
It’s totally up my alley because I am all about being goal oriented with these kind of projects. Sure I love making things spontaneously (like these crochet bookmarks) but for a large annual project, it helps me to be really focused and organised.
I am working on the first week’s assignments, which is all about goal setting, and inspiration. I’m having a blast!
Do you have any yearlong creative projects planned for 2021?

This is so interesting. Yes I am working at improving my art skills throughout 2021.Liked the idea of sewing projects
Thanks! It’s great to have those kind of goals.
Sewing is something I want to learn and although I am crafty in many things, this doesn’t seem to be one of them. Please post what you make!
There are some crafts that I don’t try either. Quilting and embroidery are mysteries to me. I’ll definitely be sharing 🙂
Sounds like a wonderful goal. I hope you share with us the garments you make. Wishing you well with your goal.
Thanks! I’ll share the ones that come out well. LOL!
