I have a niggling desire to sew stuff. You know, in all my spare time.
I have a long list of things I’d like to sew. I know, realistically, I am not going to get to sew even half of this stuff, but still I continue to put things on my list.
Things I want to Sew…. but probably won’t.
- Pants/Shorts – I want to sew 3/4 pants and/or shorts for all four kids. How gorgeous are these, or these, and these too!
- Pillow Case Dress – well these will actually be tops for my tall girls I think. Though if I didn’t use a pillow case just the design, like this one, then they could be dresses.
- Summer Dresses – I love these easy sew dresses with shirring elastic, and I totally adore this modification.
- Skirts – I sewed the girls skirts to wear to a wedding recently which were quick and easy and I have a heap of links to more fun skirts to make for them and maybe even for me?
- Zipped pouch – I need to master zips!
- Mei Tai – I had a quick hacky go at this the other day and it was fairly easy, now I want to get some nice fabric and do it properly!
- Floor Rug – Noah needs a couple of nice rugs to roll about on. I’ve got my mum working on this one, I might go for this slightly easier one!
- Bouncer Cover – Noah is using an old fashioned bouncer we borrowed from friends, I need to make a new cover so he doesn’t spew all over it!
- Birds – I’ve been eyeing off these fabric birds for a while. I think they’d be great hung from the baby gym!
- Summer Hats – surely it can’t be too difficult to sew a bucket hat? My blonde boys need heaps of them, does anyone know of any easy online tutorials?
- Bath Mat – this one has been ear marked to sew for a long long time!
- Baby Shoes – because my boy can never have too many shoes!
- Fabric Boxes – Surely it’s better to sew these than to buy more plastic? These are cool too.
- Camera Strap Cover – one day I will actually sew this, and find my lens cap.
- Bag – I want one of these for me!
And wait till you see the really long list of craft things I want to try!?!?
What’s on your ‘one day when I have some time I’ll do it’ list?
