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.


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.


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

*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. Love that knitting basket!

  3. 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.

  4. That knitting basket is fab and the training pants are super cute :)
