April Round Up….

I’ve been focussing alot recently on organising myself a bit better so I can make more time for making. Yay! So I thought each month, it would be interesting (for me at least, and hopefully for you too!) to take a look back at the previous month and see my output. Half of these I’d forgotten about already! How bad is that?!

Top Row: Blue Kimono Tee, Applique Cushions, Crochet & Chain Necklace, Sweatshirt Refashion.
Bottom Row: Nautical Outfit Refashion, Leather Planner, Bleach Polka Dot Jeans, Fishook Earrings

So I’m averaging about 2 handmade items a week. Not bad. I’m anticipating May’s tally will be higher though. MMM’13 always motivates me to make more so I don’t run out of outfit options mid month. Especially as this year I have given myself the added challenge of not wearing the same outfit twice! Aaargh!
In addition to that, May will be the first full month of using my new planner, and in theory, being sooooo organised that I have more time to sew. We shall see!

Do you keep tally of how much you’re getting done? What’s your sewing/making output per month/week?

    I’m usually lucky if I manage one make per month! But having been on holiday this week and last I will raise this. And I MMM13 is definitely making me more likely to raise it further still! It’s my first MMM, but I already anticipate a wardrobe crisis in about 10 days!

    Well done on managing to make so many things!

    You’re such a productive little bee! I love a good round-up post by the way ;o)

    it depends on the make – i did a gertie top in 2 evenings, but my mad men dress took probably 2.5 weeks. for speedy makes you can’t beat remaking something you have already traced and fitted! i’ve got 3 items planned before i go on holiday in 2 weeks. no idea how possible this is but i will try!

    It depends on my and my kid’s mood every month. I always make a list of what I want to make each month, normally I never cross everything out by the end of the month but it helps me to keep up with what I want to achieve. By the way, did you get my e-mail?!
