On The Sewing Table : Dec 2016 Plans

December is a super busy month with so many selfless sewing projects in the queue. While I can’t share too many of these projects, I do have a few for myself I can’t wait to get started on.  

December 2016 Sewing Plans

I mentioned last month I’ll be participating in  #TheLittleRedDressProject. This is a fun collab project hosted by Renata from RunningNStyle. Basically everyone participating will be making a red dress for the holiday. We’ll be posting our makes on Dec 21st. Be sure to search on Youtube for everyone’s makes using the tag #TheLittleRedDressProject.

Speaking of holiday dresses I also have plans to make the Marshmallow Dress by Cocowawa Crafts. This dress was designed by Anna Valls , and it’s just so adorable. I can’t wait to get started on this project.

Gift Making

What would the holidays be without making my little niece Layla a fun holiday themed dress. This year I plan to make her Butterick 3564 jumper and under dress.

I also plan to make the soon to be released Delia top , from Sew It With Love, as a gift for my mom.

That’s about all I can mention as far as my December sewing plans go. Let’s just home I can get them all done before Christmas.
