The year end post where I realize how many of these I never blogged about.

Now that we’ve done our Top 12 Lists it’s time for a year in sewing. Well, some of it. I didn’t blog a lot of it so you might see something new. And a few outtakes. Like this one. Gorgeous scenery, perfect light.

zip up jumper
This was the first week of Project Run & Play. I loved this jumper. She never wore it again.

Hats for sale outfit
Week two was my favorite. It was boy week. A little known fact: that’s my girl. You know which book this is from? 

simple valentines skirt
Valentine’s Day last minute outfit for pink day at school. You can never go wrong with a simple skirt. I don’t know if I blogged this or not.

toy car play mat
I made this cute car play mat from the Sewing for Boys
book. I later made the garage tutorial.

gathered duvet or quilt tutorial
I made over my daughter’s room for her 7th birthday. This is her coming home from school to find it. Find the duvet tutorial here. The wall gallery tutorial is here.

colorful frame wall
I never blogged this but I did a frame wall as well. Notice the canvas that wasn’t finished.

The “n” is done in paper flowers.

Then I started making a million Go To Signature Dresses.

Took a break from the Signature Dress to make this adorable Cottage Mama dress.

That one is me.

I had to cut myself out of this skirt. The zipper broke. Grr.

I worked on sunglasses cases poolside. Tutorial here.

Then I moved on to making a million pairs of leggings.

The Shift Dress (and these suitcases) was one of my favorites of the year. Pattern here.

A cute sewing kit made out of an embroidery hoop & some fabric. And that leather needle case.

pajama eaters
And the pajama eaters, of course.

There was a bunch more but that’s good enough for now, don’t you think? Going into this roundup I was thinking I hadn’t done much! What was I thinking?

    Huge year!!! I’m so glad to see some of the project you never blogged about. And I LOVED the caps for sale look – so brilliant using one of your girls – I totally should have done that – you’re just too creative!! Congratulations on your first 6 months with the shop!

    It’s amazing to see how much you made all while launching a new site/business. You’re unstoppable! And I LOVE the GoTo Dress. I must make.

    I love your GoTo Dress and have been trying to convince myself I can afford another pattern! I am in the midst of making 100 dresses for a mission in South Africa and these would be so cute! I guess I should skip the work sodas this week and get it! lol

    So many beautiful projects Andrea! I really love the bed cover and kids room. this year I want to fix up my house. I’d love to see more of your dresses you make for yourself. Did you do the patterns too?

  5. says

    You must be a sewing Machine sewing billions of clothes and raising your kids and making patterns and running a business … Either that or you don’t ever sleep. I live to see what you create and think you are inspiring; these are all awesome projects. Best wishes for a very happy new year!!

    Fantastic round-up! I LOVE the color block dress you made!! I’ve never tried Go To Patterns, but am eyeing the Skinny Jeans pattern. Looks perfect. :-)
