Last year I challenged myself to dig deeper and learn how to sew things more properly. I wanted to "wing it" less and learn how to make garments that actually looked decent without that tell-tail "handmade" look. I took it to heart and I learned a lot. I didn't blog about my journey as much as I had planned to but I'm still learning all the time.
This year I have decided to take my newfound knowledge to the next level. I want to put it to good use and there's nothing so good as a challenge to motivate me. My challenge is to not buy any new clothes for either myself or the girls, but to sew things as we need/want them instead. And I love this idea. I love the idea of providing for my children with my own hands and putting my sewing machine to work! What if we need a new jacket? I'll have to sew it. Undies? Yup.

Let's do this.
Interested in playing along? You can cheat and buy new clothes if you want to, I won't tell ;) but I'd love to see what you sew for the year! I'll figure out how we can share our projects and link them up together. x
