Last Minute Archer Appreciation


So on New Year’s Eve I haven’t been busy finishing off party wear, I’ve been sewing an Archer Shirt by Grainline Studio – just in time to make it during Archer Appreciation Month (and it really is just in time!). I purchased, washed and cut my fabric yesterday and did all the sewing in one day (not too shabby, especially as it’s my first shirt, I’m definitely getting quicker). As you can see the shirt isn’t quite finished – the buttons & buttonholes are still to do but I’m almost there now. The fabric is a 100% cotton plaid purchased from Barry’s Fabrics.

Not a bad final project for the year. It’s been a busy year for me – each seems to be busier than the last. Craft wise – I started sewing clothes again (largely inspired by the Great British Sewing Bee), my Etsy shop sales increased, I did my first ever craft fairs, and I started knitting (I haven’t finished a project yet but will do soon). I also started a new job (in August) and began travelling abroad regularly for work for the first time. Hopefully next year I’ll squeeze in even more. Phil treated me to a mini sewing machine for Christmas so I can do some sewing when overseas so no doubt that means more sewing projects:)

Happy New Year everyone, and happy Archer Appreciation Month too!
