One of my News Years resolutions, although not stated or ever strictly adhered too, is to actually sew some of the patterns I have collected but alas, never used.
(Last year my goal was to sew at least one whole quilt without buying any additional material and I succeeded in making 2 quilts with stock on-hand; might say something about how much fabric I have, or not).
Anyway, this year I thought I'd dive into the patterns and see what happens. My purpose is 2-fold. One, to actually see if the pattern is worth making and therefor keeping. Two, I teach a sewing class and am always looking for ideas for my students. I often use patterns a starting points and change/add things here and there to make it work for me.
Today I tried not one, but 2 new patterns and they are both keepers.
