This has been a slow week sewing wise for me. I have a stack of projects to work on, and I didn’t start or finish a single one. Early on in the week, I felt the call of the kitchen and have spent most of my time there.
Still, I can’t help but look at the fabric waiting to be transformed and sigh. Mostly because it is sitting on the ironing board and sewing table mocking my laziness. To be honest, I am not even sure what I am going to do with half of it, but I started the week thinking I would figure it out.
Here a small collection of the projects that weren’t this week. I figure the pressure of posting this on my blog will inspire me. And if not, perhaps, I will be motivated to put this stuff away and get new stuff out.
In February I said, I wanted to make myself a cloak so I can sit on the grass at the Renn Faire. I purchased my supplies, laundered them, figured out a pattern, and got it all ready about a month ago. I still haven’t cut it out. The worst part about this is I cut out and finished a cloak for my husband made out of fabric that is much harder to work with. I think I have a fear of making clothing for myself at this point.
A collection of fabric I wanted to sew with this week and have no idea what I actually want to make with any of it. It is laundered and pressed even. And it is so awesome really: Comic book covers, Skyrim dragonborn symbols, Mass Effect symbols, purses and shoes: all among my very favorite things!
This is an experiment to create a gaming mat. The idea is to transport painted figs/minis safely in a cushioned compartment and have a place to roll dice as well.
Made from muslin, my second idea for a mini fig/dice mat. It is smaller, though it doesn’t look it. Instead of sleeves to hold the figure and no where for the dice, I added a place for a zipper pocket with two compartments. I may have made it too small for my purposes and because of this I haven’t done one up in good fabric..
I am slightly obsessed with zippers. I saw lace zippers on a Japanese handbag and fell completely in love with the zipper. When I saw these at the local fabric shop, I had to have them. I decided that this was the week I would design and make a bag for them, but I didn’t. Oh, and I also ordered 10 more from Japan about a month ago that have flower cut-outs and butterfly zipper pulls; at least they haven’t arrived yet. I really need to figure out what I am going to do with all of these.
Spider-man flannel that I bought when it was still cold to make sleepy pants for my husband. The fabric has been laundered and that is it.
I know all about me, but does anyone else have this problem?
