WIP Wednesday {9.5.12}

Happy Wednesday and happy September! I have never been so ready for fall in my life! I am happy to be starting a new month and boy, do I have a lot to do.  With a long weekend of travel, I didn't do too much this week, but I am slowly working my way through it. Thankfully, though my list is long, a lot of it should go pretty quickly; not many big projects at the moment. This is my sewing with knits week, so that is what most of my list is right now.

Completed:

knitting basket

Done and it worked really well for traveling with my socks.

training pants

I made one of the six I was going to make and I don't really like them so I am calling them done. I will come back to it if I need to.

trial shirts

I finished my test crossover tee (it came out huge) and flashback skinny tee (needs a slightly wider neck). They came out well.

New:

froggy hoodie

I have had this old pair of sweat pants sitting around waiting for this for ages. And the biggest size I could get out of the pants was 6-12 month, so I'm not sure who this is going to when it's done, but it is going to be really cute! I figured while I was sewing up all these knits I might as well get it out of my cabinet.


Still Going:

fall jacket
I am planning on finishing this up next week. I think. Maybe. Whenever I am done my knits anyway.

fall clothes






this nice pile of knit fabric is destined to become: 3 skinny tees, a shirt for me, a pair of pants, and a crib sheet. Hopefully in the near future.

sleeping johns
I needed the elastic for this so they aren't done and I forgot to take a picture. 

pool robe


I bought the MADE pattern and want to make one before swimming lessons start up again. I am going to pick up the bias tape today and then I am ready to go! Which is good because I am running out of time.

tova (the good version)
I bought some voile ages ago for this and I am super excited. It will be the "real" version since the other two were just tests for size and fit and everything. I am thinking I'll make this after I finish the fall jacket.

pillow covers 2 & 3
No hurry here, I'll make them whenever inspiration strikes/I am avoiding something else

Waiting:
*wedding quilt - this is not at all a priority right now, but I don't want to forget it
*baby quilt -inspiration has struck...once I have time to put it together
*baby echo quilt - I decided I want to use my scraps, but I'm not quite sure how yet...

I am hoping this will all go pretty quick and then I can start thinking about christmas gifts. I don't know yet how much I will make this year, so I want to figure that out and start gathering what I need. I guess that depends on whether I get distracted by anything else in the mean time, which I am not ruling out.  For now I just keep going down the list and trying to get all this done.

  1. I love your knitting basket. I've had some fabric baskets on my to-do list for a while now -- gotta get to them!

  2. I'm impressed with all of the clothing you are making. You are so much braver than me - I haven't gotten up the courage to venture in that direction yet.
