WHERE DID JANUARY GO?!
I am so excited to get started on the projects I have planned this month. In fact, I am so impatient that I have actually already started one of them (eek!).
Now then a little disclaimer before I start. You will notice that the projects I have chosen are very summery – and that is because I am going on a cruise around Asia in March – so I need to prep my holiday wardrobe!
PROJECT #1: A Sew Over It ‘Betty’ Hack
This absolutely stunning fabric was given to me by Ashleigh and Andy for my birthday in January. They bought it from Sew Crafty – a really lovely online shop that I would highly recommend if you are looking for beautifully printed cottons. I initially decided to make a Betty Dress from Sew Over It, however after cutting out the bodice, I realised that the fabric wasn’t suitable due to its one way design. So I have decided to try out a little hack, and create a dress using the Betty bodice and the box pleat skirt from Sew Over It Vintage. Wish me luck!
PROJECT #2: An ‘Explorer Tote’
So I am not going to spend too long talking about this because I have actually written a really long blog post talking about this already! Basically, I have decided to make them smaller version of the Explorer Tote by Noodlehead (Anna Graham). I have never made a bag before, so I am so excited/nervous to get going on this one!

PROJECT #3: Sew Over It Silk Cami(s)
For Christmas my Mum + Dad bought me this lovely scarf. Now I absolutely adore the fabric that this scarf if made from and I think it would make a stunning little camisole to wear on holiday. I am going to use the Silk Cami pattern from Sew Over It.
PROJECT #4: I don’t know yet!
Another birthday gift I received was this absolutely gorgeous printed cotton fabric from Sew Crafty. I am not sure what I will make out of this yet but I am thinking of making a Vintage Shirt Dress from Sew Over it.
I have 3m of this fabric and it is about 115cm wide, so please let me know if you have any suggestions. I am not sure if I will have time to finish this project by the end of February, but I know that I will have lots of enjoyment just looking at the fabric!
That’s it for now – have a lovely day, wherever you are.
