#2018makenine Plans



Over the Christmas holiday, I spent a day or two listing my fabric stash in the Cora app. My intention was to have an easy way to check the fabric I already own before assuming I need to buy new fabric for a project, and to have a way to record where and when I buy it, as I have sometimes forgotten this by the time I come to sew with a fabric.

Whilst listing my fabric in Cora, I rediscovered a number of fabrics which I had bought to make a specific pattern, and where I still very much wanted to make that pattern. Rather than just put those fabrics back in the stash, I made a note in Cora of the planned project and decided to put those projects to the top of my to-sew list by participating in #2018makenine.

The nine fabrics I have selected from my stash, and associated patterns, are featured in my latest vlog:

My nine fabrics and paired patterns are also pictured below:

  1. Great pattern and fabric pairings. Particularly looking forward to seeing the Hannah dress. 😊

  2. That Chalk and Notch Fringe pattern with the kitty cats is going to be great! Love all your makes… I made over 50 things in 2017 but still managed to not make a single one of the #MakeNine I was supposed to! So this year I am afraid to try! Haha… Looking forward to seeing all of yours!

    • Thank you! I haven’t participating before so I’ll see how I get on. Given that I have all of the supplies ready it should be easy not to get too distracted, but we shall see!
