Happy 2015, everyone! I hope you all had an enjoyable festive season.
First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me for #SewingFrancoise. I was a runner up and won a £100 voucher for Plush Addict 😀 £100 of entirely guilt-free fabric shopping! Thank you so much for voting – I only started sewing a few months ago really, so I’m blown away. And thank you so much to Tilly for running the contest!
I’ve never bought anything from Plush Addict, and I was so excited when I realised how much I had to choose from. The fabric is all great and it came really quickly. I’ll definitely buy from them again.
Since my purchases will probably make up a large percentage of my 2015 projects, I thought I’d show you my haul and let you know what I’m planning to make.
I have Tilly to thank for my spoils, so I thought it only right that I make some Tilly clothes 🙂 Also, all her patterns are lush, so I don’t mind in the slightest. I bought some indigo canvas to make the Delphine skirt from Love at First Stitch. I got some striped jersey to try a Coco dress, which I’m very excited about because I’ve wanted to make Coco for ages. Aaaannnnd… I got some red faux silk to attempt her Mathilde blouse. That one is scaring me slightly because it looks a bit fiddly.
My non-Tilly projects will include Colette’s Macaron, for which I bought the lovely Michael Miller Marionettes cotton. I haven’t got the contrast fabric for this yet. I got some polka dot chiffon to make the simple t-shirt in the second Great British Sewing Bee book. And finally, I bought some Michael Miller Marbles cotton to make the Colour Burst dress from the latest Mollie Makes Sewing magazine.
Phew – quite a haul! I’m looking forward to getting stuck in.
Buuut… before all of that, I’m going to make a pair of pyjama bottoms. I’m going to use the Margot pattern from Love at First Stitch (of course). I’m making them from this Dalmatian print cotton. Woof! Do you remember the cave girl costumes I made? Well, after making those, I was invited to take part in Jungle January by Pretty Grievances. So, I’ll be making my PJs before anything else so I don’t miss the January deadline.
So there you have it. My sewing plans for what must be most of 2015 (or possibly the rest of my life!) by the time I’ve finished. All down to Tilly and Plush Addict. Thanks, guys!
What’s on your sewing tables at the moment?
