I may be a little late to the party, but I’m finally sharing my Make Nine for 2020!
If you watched my youtube video wrapping up how things went with the year of slow sewing you’ll know that I have pretty much let go of making any concrete sewing plans. That being said, I still like to do a Make Nine as it gets me excited for new year sewing and it helps me to hone in on my favorites from my list of makes I have my eye on.
I thought it would be fun to put in a closer look at how I am using my bullet journal to plan my makes throughout the year. On the left, each sticky label represents a pattern or project thats been at the top of mind recently. On the right is a grid of the months of the year. I generally only get to one personal sewing project a month so, and each grid space can fit two labels. As the year progresses, I move the labels from the left to the right as I’m deciding the order I’d like to make things in the moment. What I LOVE about this method is that its editable. I get the tangibility of a plan on paper which I love, but the flexibility of moving the sticky notes as I see fit. Some stickies get pulled off all together and replaced with new ones!
As I was thinking about my Make Nine, I looked over this list to see what I was most excited about. This is what I ended up with:
- Wilder Gown – Friday Pattern Company
- Jupe La Boheme – Vanessa Pouzet
- Tate Top – Workroom Social
- Libra Bodysuit – French Poetry
- Peppermint Playsuit – Peppermint Magazine
- Simplicity 9012
- Gabriola Skirt – Sewaholic
- Simplicity 8927
- Tabor V Neck – Sew House 7
