12 in 2012 – A Sewing Challenge


So I may be a little late to the game (like three months late), but I’m jumping on-board and participating in Suzie’s 12 in 2012 Sewing Challenge.  I think this is a great way to expand sewing skills and push boundaries and not stick to sewing projects that are easy and safe.  How else are you supposed to grow in sewing?

So above are the 12 projects that I picked and plan to tackle and accomplish before December 31, 2012.  Most of them are a little scary to me, like making pants (so hard to fit!), a strapless dress (ack boning!), and swimsuit (ummm…pretty obvious why that’s scary!).  But if it wasn’t for this challenge, I don’t think I would have thought to make a list of projects that could take my sewing to the next level.  Now it’s just a matter of finding the time to sit down and make them!
