(Sewing) Projects in 2015

It’s nice to be able to look back at a year and realize how much ‘making’ has happened! Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to photograph every single thing I sewed in 2015 – simply because they were last minutes gifts sewn the night before or because the lighting in the winter (read: October to March) is very sparse… Nevertheless, I managed to compile a list of quite a few. First up the no-fail Oliver + S dancing skirt aka tutu:

And then this first intended as a skirt but quickly altered into a top via simple hangers:

Then a whole lot of non-garment sewing for gift giving purposes:

Well, a quilt will actually be my first project of the new year as well. I used New Year’s Eve to start cutting my new fabric for a quilt for the family. I cannot wait to sit back in front of my sewing machine and get started!!
