    my current goals are to get to work on some christmas presents (want to make the weekender bag for my stepmom, for 1) and to break down and buy a clothing pattern – probably something for my 2 year old son (at least he won’t know to be too picky!). i haven’t sewn clothing before, so i’m curious to see how it’ll turn out!!

  2. Amy says:

    I’d like to make a wrap-skirt. Heck, I’d like to make anything. I just started taking sewing lessons and my teacher isn’t all that enthusiastic :( I’m so happy I found your blog! I’ve learned I have a tragic fabric obsession and have developed a horrible crush on Amy Butler’s prints. My checking account is suffering. Sigh. So, my goal is to make a wrap-skirt for my almost three yr. old. Her birthday is in two weeks. I figured she wouldn’t be picky if it wasn’t very good and a skirt of that size wouldn’t take too much fabric :)

  3. Sarah says:

    I have a long list of goals, including a few outfits for an upcoming trip to Paris (only 52 more days to sew!). After that it is clothes for Xmas gifts for neices and nephews. Then finish pillows for the living room, recover dining room chair seats, make and cover an ottoman for the LR and reupholster a bench in the master bedroom. This doesn’t include all the little things like a robe for me, and other random gifts along the way. I’d love to quit my job and sew. :)

  4. lulu says:

    to use more of the unused patterns from my pattern stash (and to stop adding to it)!

  5. Tammi says:

    I just want to make something that fits. Lately that hasn’t happened.

  6. Heather says:

    My sewing goal is definately to find time to sew a few things for myself! Between sewing orders and baby quilts for pregnant girlfriends I can’t seem to find a little extra time for the curtains and pillows I want to have done before we move! Here’s hoping……

  7. Saralyn says:

    Is there such a thing as sewing ADD? My goal is to make a priority list and finish the already started projects in my sewing room. Once I get through that pile I want to learn to use my Lutterloh System.

  8. wendy says:

    My sewing goal is to get really really organized, all buttons in one place, cottons, silks, wools, kids patterns, adult patterns, oh but the time it would take to do that I could probably make a tote and a nice little lacy top. Oh to dream the impossible dream, must be my theme song, and yes to use much of what is in my stash, my darling hubby said my sewing room is beginning to look like a fabric store and my reply was “gosh….thanks
    honey” : 0 ) .

  9. Sandy says:

    I’d love to draft & sew my own skirts, plus not be intimidated w/ putting in a lining.

  10. Kris says:

    My goal is to make a nice jacket that fits me well. I have large upper arms and I think it’s going to take some work to adjust a pattern so it fits well.

  11. laura says:

    my goal is to sew a duvet cover for my bed…i would need to sew button holes which will be a first for me.

    by the way i love your new fabrics!

  12. Patty Hall says:

    Hi. Many, many goals and dreams and UFO’s flying about.
    My sewing goal is to get my sewing room set up, get things within reach.
    I have a good size material stash. Here are some things I want to complete
    ~baby quilts for a Pregnancy Center-I’ll just sew these sandwich style and probably tack them with cotton crochet thread
    ~pillows for my couch and for my bed. I have some beautiful embroidered pieces that I want to use in the pillows, they match the curtain toppers I made earlier this yr.
    ~I would like to get into making some of my own clothes. My mom sewed for the public, made our clothes, etc and taught us 4 girls to sew at an early age. My first project was a box pleated skirt, made the pattern and all.
    ~and a quilt for my son. I told him several yrs ago I’d make him one and haven’t yet.:(
    ~I also have a goal of one day having my own business, sewing little girls dresses. This has been a dream of mine for along time now. I want to take some heirloom sewing classes, smocking, etc. I love sewing by hand.
    Blessings
    Patty H.

  13. My goal is to get some patterns once I get to England. There are no patterns at all here. There are dress makers, but the don’t use patterns, you show them a picture and they make it once they have taken your measurements. I want to make myself some dresses and new handbags with these patterns. I hope I can find some nice ones…

  14. Jade says:

    My plan for the next few weeks is to make some summer tops for me and a few dresses for my daughter…..that is if I don’t get too busy!

  15. Margo says:

    My goal is to learn how to appliqué. I have made some basic pieced quilts, but I would like to make an appliqué quilt.

  16. anne says:

    I want to make my first quilt! I’m just learning my machine, messing about, but that’s my ultimate goal.

  17. lori says:

    My goal is to learn how to use interfacing and breathe at the same time. I’m taking a class in which we’re making a vintage 50′s dress. Plenty of interacing practice. Wish me luck!

  18. Pam Kimberly says:

    my goal is to sew dresses that match the ones I made for my sisters when I was nine years old.

  19. Jody says:

    My goals … oh, there are so many! First, to learn to sew a zipper WELL. Second, to learn to love my sewing machine … big challenge, I barely like it. Third, to learn to slow down, make smart decisions, read directions, use a seam ripper, and pin. Fourth, to learn to put colors together well that don’t necessarily go together, but do. Lastly, to work on just sewing better … broading my horizons and trying new things.

  20. kara says:

    My goal is to make the perfect winter coat! I can’t seem to find one that it exactly what I want. I can’t seem to find the right color, size, length, etc. So I am determined to make it!

  21. Mika says:

    I really want to learn how to READ patterns and do more advanced sewing than I currently do. I would love to be able to make bags!

  22. Jill says:

    Use my lovely new sewing closet (once my machine gets back from being tuned).

  23. Andrea Heinz says:

    My biggest sewing goal is to learn and master sewing clothes. I am learning many new things in the process of sewing simple projects. Some day I hope to be experienced enough to sell my crafts and feel confident with my craftswomanship.

  24. Sarah G. says:

    My sewing goal is to finish all of my half done projects soon so that I can give all homemade gifts for Christmas this year and use up my fabric stash before it gets out of control (and so I can buy new fabric with the gift cards I know I’ll get for Christmas).

  25. Sue Ann says:

    Opps, put in wrong url

  26. Sue Ann says:

    My goal is to get over my FEAR OF ZIPPERS!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. vickie says:

    I am interested in simple baby clothes. Using rick rack. Making purses. All your tutorials are great! I have been sewing for 25 years so I know quite a bit but there is always room for improvement.

  28. Raquel M. says:

    I want to sew som bags for my Christmas list. I know that I have time, I know……

  29. carol says:

    I am “pattern challenged” and would love to be able to learn to follow patterns with better results at some point!

  30. Lori Hudson says:

    I want to sew halloween costumes this year. Also, I want to make some simple window treatments.

  31. Joanna says:

    I want to finally conquer my fear of the zipper. I think I will start with Amy Carol’s zip pouches. I plan on making a ton of them for Christmas presents. Three and a half months to Christmas. I know it will go by quickly. I need to get more organized so I don’t end up in a mad rush come the end of November! I also want to learn how to put the elastic in the sleeves and necklines of shirts such as the simplicity 3887 that has been appearing all over blogland. I am dying to make some of these, but am intimidated….

  32. Molly says:

    My goal is to make a wall hanging from Amy Butler’s book In Stitches. I also would like to sew several Christmas gifts this year. I am pretty new to sewing, but I am loving it!

  33. Lisa says:

    I have no problem with bags, be it simple or complex, but I am so daunted by sewing for myself. I really, really want to sew some skirts this year, that’s a goal I’ve had for awhile, and just have to do it, dive in, make mistakes, and get better. That’s a sewing goal I have. Lisa.

  34. -Sue- says:

    Well my first goal is to make my son a soft toy – a small spaceman and robot. Then my big goal will be a handbag for myself, I dont have a pattern but I have a heap of designs I like and I am going to *try* to make a pattern myself???
    I have some beautiful fabric but I am scared of stuffing it up so I will be trying with something less precious first lol :)
    I think I will have to get some of that Kaufman fabric you have pictured up there – it is gorgeous :)

  35. Christy says:

    I’d like to make slipcovers for my living room furniture and learn how to adjust clothing patterns so they fit me better. I’d also like to make a couple of lap quilts and aprons for Christmas gifts this year.

  36. Katherine says:

    I want to sew a King size quilt for our bed within the next year.

  37. sharon says:

    Still trying to master the welt pocket :-)

  38. Ruth says:

    I would love to learn how to get a better fit with patterns and how to draft my own patterns. I would sew more for myself if I knew more about drafting/altering.

  39. Emilee says:

    I want to be able to sew myself a t-shirt that really fits the way I can never get a store-bought t-shirt to fit. Just a straightforward shirt that I can modify to change it up, but knowing that it will always work. I have not had much luck yet.

  40. Carmen says:

    I would love some of the fabric so I could make my best friend a cute quilt for Christmas!

  41. Alice Anjo says:

    My sewing goal, this next year, is to share more with others who have this sewing bug. Whether it is to teach others what I have learned or the sharing of mistakes so we can figure out what went wrong, sewing tends to be a solitary occupation and we need to foster more sharing than telling the good, the bad and the just plain strange.

  42. Kim says:

    I want to get over this shoulder injury so I “can” get back to sewing comfortably .
    Though I would really like to learn how to sew clothes not only quilts too one day ….

  43. I want to learn how to do different quilting stitches on top of my finished quilts.

  44. Tammy says:

    Oh, I have quite a list. I want to be able to make myself clothing without being afraid that it will look too homemade. I want to make my DD’s halloween costume. I want to make DH some pj / lounge pants. And I want to create / draft a pattern to cover a bucket to make a craft organizer for my BF’s scrapbbok supplies. And I almost forgot – I would love to learn how to quilt.

  45. Becky Waldrop says:

    My goal is to learn how to make my own patterns from clothing styles I see and love but be able to make it my own.

  46. Megan Young says:

    A sewing goal I have would be to learn to draft my own simple patterns. That would be great fun.

  47. Concha says:

    Quilting! When it comes to sewing I’m mostly self-taught and there’s hardly any patchwork quilting tradition in Portugal… I envy you American girls!

  48. stacey says:

    I would like to learn some fool proof way to cut patterns out quicker without shifting everything and getting jagged edges…any ideas?:)

  49. Lindsey says:

    I really want to get a walking foot and learn how to do really nice machine quilting. Currently I can only handle lap sized quilts. I would love to make a quilt for the bed!

  50. Sabine says:

    I’d like to use my favourite old dress, which is wearing out, as a pattern for a new one.

  51. Nicole says:

    My goal is to get around to sewing a couple of tablecloths. I’ve had the fabric for months, but I only seem to remember it at inconvenient times.

  52. Nora says:

    My next project is learning to sew roman shades. I’ve seen the kits with hardware and they’re pretty pricey, but a friend told me I could spend just a few bucks a blind by getting the hardware individually at a fabric shop and lowe’s/home depot.

  53. michal says:

    i want to finally gather up the courage to sew some more clothes for myself. i have fabric and some patterns for a few simple skirts, but for some reason i’m so worried i’ll mess them up so bad i wouldn’t be able to wear them. i guess i need to just lunge ahead and do it, but i’m a little scared…

  54. Shelley says:

    My goal is to turn some of my ufos into finished objects! My second goal is to get an early start on Christmas gifts this year.

  55. Karen says:

    My goal is to learn how to adjust patterns BEFORE I start sewing them. My body measurements are just not represented in the sizes given, and I’d like to be able to sew fitted things that actually fit.

  56. Barbara says:

    So many sewing goals…. so little time! Apart from finishing some bags and cushions which are draped over the clothes horse waiting patiently for finishing touches, I’ve been inspired by various blogs to make something for my daughter to wear. We’ve chosen a pattern for a sweet little top and picked the fabric from my stash. Just need to cut pattern and get started – I know I’ll need to adjust it too. Oh yes there’s also the mermaid costume for Halloween but I’ve lots of time for that – haven’t I?

  57. Christina says:

    My long term goal for sewing I guess is to be able to make all my clothes myself…. but if I was to pick one short term goal for now would be to make a 1953 vintage dress I found in a book that traces the different clothing styles year by year (since 1900, I believe until the early 60s) and exemplifies the styles by giving one male and one female pattern for each year.

  58. MaryBeth says:

    My goal is to finish all of the purses that I have cut out and ready to go! I have about 15 of them.

  59. I would just like to finish all of the things I’ve promised people. I have diaper bags, aprons, purses, and a gum drop pillow in the works, as well as a few headband. My big goal is to get a sewing area set up and to just sew! Take joy in finishing what I’ve started!

    Smiles!
    Dianne

  60. michelle says:

    My goal is to sew myself a shirt that looks as good as the ones in the stores! (And fits better – and hopefully made of better, more environmentally friendly materials and processes.)

  61. São says:

    my goal is to sew curtains for my kitchen. i haven’t done it yet because i get so undecided with the fabrics and the patterns. i’m waiting until i get the perfect fabric.

  62. Lynn says:

    My goal is to finish all my unfinished objects. Lets see, right now that’s a dress, a couple quilts, and a ton of placemats and napkins

  63. Lisa says:

    This week’s goal is to learn to make buttonholes. They intimidate me.

  64. Becca says:

    I am new to sewing, but my next goal is matching pajama pants for myself and my 2 year old niece. :)

  65. Maggie says:

    My goal is to sew some curtains for the new home I’ve moved to. Really I’d like to get motivated to do any sewing. I’ve had a very stressful time in the past six months with life changing events and I’m really trying to pull myself together and find the motivation to sew something. I know it will feel so good when I do that.

  66. Anita says:

    Maybe this sounds too simple, but I really want to use up a large portion of my scraps! I have a hard time throwing anything away and the scraps are starting to take over. ;-)

  67. Julie says:

    My goal, like others, is to sew MORE! It took me a year just to become friends with my sewing machine. Then, I had I had it tuned up, and I fell in love! Now, I just have to go on more dates with it! :-)

  68. Mandy says:

    My goal is to sew more cute clothes for my children than I buy. Also, I would like to try sewing myself a skirt. I have never sewn any clothing for myself before!

  69. Maxine says:

    My goal is to make a quilt. I’ve designed a simple layout, ordered the fabric and now just need to put it all together!

  70. Karie says:

    I have a ton of sewing goals…. First is to get my sewing stuff organized and put away into their new home, I had bought a shelving unit form Ikea and still have yet to organize it in the best way possible. I have also started to make dolls form a pattern that I just fell in love with from Wee Wonderfulls, I am making them for all my neices and my sons want the boy doll too, so I have to find perfect fabric for that as well…. I would love to design my own patterns as well, I had made a hand bag one, but would love to try it out on other things too… like my own doll pattern and some clothes for my neices. I also want to make my sons some sleep pants for the fall, as it seems the only thing that I can find to make them… the boy patterns out there are not so great for a 5 and 6 year old. :-(

  71. Tina M. says:

    I’d like to make a dress from the mounds of apparel fabric I’ve collected and then ignored after taking up quilting.

  72. I have so many!! The next one is to make a cover for my old futon.

  73. Sarah N. says:

    Your site has inspired me to want to make some skirts for me and my daughter. Thanks for a great website!

  74. Jan says:

    Quilting has become my new goal… to learn how to machine quilt. It is a slow tedious process but hopefully over the next few months I will master the techniques.

  75. Laura says:

    My goal is to get started NOW on Holiday crafts,Decorations, & Gifts!!!

  76. Fiona says:

    My sewing goal would be to finish my beautiful quilt I made last year at my first quilting weekend. This is to go to on my bed. I would like it quilted professionally. xx

  77. Rita Pereira says:

    my goal is to sew my own clothes and in time to draft my own patterns (which is difficult here in Portugal because most of the textile factories are closing down)

  78. Lori says:

    So many! My most immediate goal is to add BINDING to 8 simple placemats I started making for my mom. It’s always the finishing skills I seem to lack! Ugh. The whole machine-sew-one-side-hand-sew-the-other freaks me out a bit, and I’m still not sure about the dimensions to cut, fold, etc. Hope I can get them done for Christmas…didnt’ make it for her July bday :( Happy sewing, y’all!

  79. Kelly says:

    My current sewing goal is to finish the following:
    1. Christmas table runner (starting now in August so I have it ready to roll for December :)
    2. Matching stockings (see comment above re: planning in advance!)
    3. Hand made goodies (thinking about a few things, not totally sure what yet) for Christmas gifts (again, so trying to plan ahead)
    4. Learn how to make a cushion for the top of my sons toy chest.
    5. Create a triangle banner out of all of my scraps for my son’s first birthday (also in december, maybe I should move this up the list)
    6. Last but not least, a green polka-dot quilt for our guest room. I am an acomplished seemstress (my mothers words not mine) but I have never made a quilt, signing up for a class and we’ll see how it goes!

    Wish me luck! Marking this posting now to check back in a few months to see how I am doing!

  80. ia says:

    I’ve never put in a zipper and I’ve never used heavy interlining, so I’d like to try that out. Also, I’m planning some baby clothes where I think jersey bias tape should be used, which seems to be something that can easily get a very home-made look.

  81. Mine is to make enough money from stitching things I like to be able to give up the day job – well I can dream can’t I? :o)

  82. KBG says:

    My sewing goal is to finish what I start BEFORE starting another project.

  83. Paula says:

    Well, I promised my daughter a bathing suit coverup. My goal is to finally make it so she can wear it at least once this summer.

  84. I need to work on my daughter’s fall wardrobe!

  85. Beth says:

    My sewing goals right now are: clean up my sewing space so I can actually sew and USE the last three patterns I’ve purchased and make my daughter some fall clothes.

  86. michelle says:

    I want to learn to use a serger. I also have not put in a buttonhole yet.

  87. Ahava Jora says:

    My sewing goal is to make an article of clothing that I am happy enough with to wear out of the house. There is always some small detail that bothers me, that I’m sure nobody else would notice, but that I would know was there, thus rendering the garment unwearable.

  88. Barbara says:

    My goal is to make myself a skirt. I just purchase a book on how to make a skirt without a pattern…exactly what I need. I just recently went shopping to find some cute skirts to wear to work. I’m an Teaching Assistant and wanted some skirts that where comfortable, cute, but not expensive…I found nothing. I have always been afraid to create clothes so I hope to put my fears to rest.

  89. shorty says:

    My newest goal is to sew a wearable outfit from Ottore! I am going to start the tracing tonight hopefully. I REALLY want to learn how to sew clothing and I think this push into the more difficult relm of sewing is going to help
    Shorty

  90. cathy says:

    My goal for sewing is to actually finish all my WIPs. I love that feeling of having just completed something.

  91. Shannon says:

    So many projects, so little time…My current sewing goal is to practice free motion machine quilting. I’m working on a table runner for myself. I’m also starting a couple of tote bags, and I have a couple baby blankets partly finished, all of which I am planning to do some machine quilting on.

  92. Ana says:

    I have two I want to tackle in the near future. One is a skirt with a zippered waist, from the SewWhat, Skits! book. The second is a cover for a cube-shaped ottoman in my living room. How to do those corners?!?!

  93. Janice says:

    I need to make back to school clothes for my new kindgergardner :)

  94. Frances says:

    I want to make some big cozy pillows for guests to sit on when they come over, because I do not have enough furniture!

  95. Georgia says:

    My goal is to make a little cot quilt for a friend’s first baby. My friend and her husband have been trying for over two years to have this baby and I would love to give them something special and hand made when he/she finally arrives. Trouble is I have never made a quilt in my life. I’m very much a beginner with sewing. Hmmmm. I’m very inspired by some of the quilt photos on the SMS Flickr pages though, and am determined to give it a go! Wish me luck!

  96. KK says:

    To crack open the box on the new sewing machine my Mom gave me for my Birthday in March. Did I mention–I’ve never sewn a lick. I am, however, a fierce fabric collector! I’ve got a stash you wouldn’t believe. Now, if I can just be brave enough to cut into my first piece.

  97. Reethi says:

    I have two – finish all the projects I start (I have 3 skirts that just need a fastener to be finished, and 2 that need the waistband done, not major at all, and easily finished.) The other is to make a pair of pants… I’ve never done that before, so far, its been all skirts and tops…

  98. cj says:

    My sewing goal is to work on reducing my stash…….but I’m hopeless, I bought fabric today at a thrift store…….I just can’t resist a bargain…….LOL

  99. Dee says:

    I’d like to not be afraid of paper patterns anymore. Ah, someday!

  100. Trina says:

    My sewing goal isn’t cloth related – not this month, anyway. I am scrapbooking my son’s first year and incorporating sewing on each page to give the album unity. It’s a lovely, soft detail for a baby album…

  101. Bailey says:

    My goals are to finish the layette for my newest baby cousin and learn how to sew a proper zipper and use the buttonhole attachment. I will learn this someday, I really will. I think I need to see it in action, not described in a book. I need more friends who sew… well, one would do.

  102. Angela says:

    I would love to clear out some of the “to do” projects I’ve had lining up. Without adding to the pile the way I always do. *sigh* Just too much inspiration out there. As for skills based sewing goals, I’d like to work on learning hand applique and machine applique. I’ve seen so many great designs for quilting and wearables that incorporate applique, I’m tired of thinking I can’t do it. That and learning how to hand quilt. That one may take awhile for me to work up to — think I’ll do the applique thing first! Oh — and zippers. I want the mystery taken out of zippers.

  103. Lissy says:

    goal….to make the rag edge baby quilt for the baby before she arrives….

  104. Rae says:

    My goal is to sew a snowsuit for my baby — he’ll be 9 months old in December. I found an Ottobre magazine with a baby snowsuit pattern in it, so now I just need the materials and I’ll be set to go!

  105. Tamara says:

    n the recent months I have been teaching my seven year old dughter to sew. Last month she drafted a simple a-line pattern for her sister’s doll, cut in out and did the basic sewing. I would love to work with her to develop this skill even more. She has a keen eye for design.

  106. Melissa says:

    I would love to make curtains for my whole house before winter. I know I can sew them no problem but its a huge project! One window at a time…

  107. Meghan says:

    Many sewing goals:
    -learning to alter patterns to fit my tall frame
    -learning how to line all kinds of garments
    -sewing gorgeous clothes from vintage patterns

  108. meg says:

    my list is loooong, but one of my goals is to get an etsy shop started and that involves quite a bit of sewing.

  109. Linda Lehn says:

    My goal is to make a quilt for a charity raffle next month.

  110. I just completed an upholestered headboard and a memory quilt. I am now working on some decorative pillows for my bed, something for a friend’s new baby girl and a girl’s jacket I want to try for the fall.

  111. Barbara says:

    In the spring I bought some beautiful swiss-dot fabric in denim blue with ecru flowers embroidered along one edge. All summer I thought of the dress I would like to make with it, and finally decided on something simple and pretty. Now it is almost fall, and too cool for the dress. But you never know, maybe I will get it done for next summer :)

  112. Denise says:

    I have many goals, mostly to just keep the sewing momentum that I have had over the last year. I enjoy making gifts for people and have done a couple of commissioned items. I would like to make a retro jacket, I have the pattern and some fabric for a wearable muslin but keep getting distracted by other “easier” projects. I have found that sewing is very gratifying to me in so many ways. I am beginning to think it essential to my health.

  113. Sibyl says:

    I am wanting to make some jumpers and skirts for myself this fall. Needing to find some new fabrics.

    Sibyl

  114. I’m wanting to make a duvet cover and learn how to make slipcover for a sofa.

  115. irene says:

    I just made 4 couch pillows for the first time and love the way they turned out. Now, I’d like to make some for ME, but some other projects are in line first- curtains for my boy’s room.

  116. Laura says:

    I want to learn how to put a zipper in a skirt. Elastic is great, but I’d love to make a tailored skirt!

  117. meowy says:

    My goal is to finish Christmas gifts, preferably before this Christmas haha. I have still yet to finish a couple aprons, cut and sew fabric napkins for a couple more people, figure out the layout of the fabric and then put together a lap quilt for a friend, sew about 10 pot holders, and make bias tape for the various projects. If I have time, I want to try dying some cotton fabric in various shades of blue to make another lap quilt for the same friend who gets the other one.

    For a goal for items just for myself, I’d like to learn to make myself a skirt. Just not sure how it’ll actually look, so I keep putting it off.

  118. I’d like to complete a series of small quilts (~ 6″ x 9″) looking at color interactions – how many? This, I don’t know, but 20-30 sounds right!

  119. Roxanne says:

    My sewing goal is to learn how to use a serger. A friend of mine is upgrading and has offered to sell me her used serger, so here goes nothing! I love to make clothes for my daughter (looking forward to your Sept. challenge) and I’m hoping this will really improve the quality and help them last long enough to be hand-me-downs!

  120. Christie says:

    I would love to learn to draft my own patterns, but my main goals are to master some simple stuff that scares me (& I keep avoiding). Mastering buttonholes & zippers & understanding my sewing machine a bit better (tension etc…)

  121. jessi says:

    funny you should mention it – sofa cushions is just what I have on my mind!

  122. Mrs.Pear says:

    My current sewing goal is to get my projects done!

    I have a half finished apron, all the fabric to make a winter set for the kitchen (placemats, napkins, apron), and fabric for two dresses for my daughter (still need buttons).

    If I could just squeeze an extra hour out of my day….

  123. My goal is to keep on creating with my sewing machine. To have fun, to make both usefull and strictly for the fun of it stuff.

  124. Tina says:

    I’m getting ready to sew holiday stockings for our charity group. Lots and lots of holiday stockings. I’m trying to make them all out of non holiday fabric, non traditional but classy.

    Tina

  125. Nikko says:

    My goal is to finish quilts for my three (soon to be four!) boys that I started almost two years ago. Another goal is to actually make something for ME! I’m always making things for my kids, or gifts to give away.

  126. Becky says:

    My new sewing goal is to try to make myself and dress and a shirt that look good enough to wear out of the house! : )

  127. LynnC says:

    My goal is to cover some cushions on two old chairs. I start an upholstery class at a local junior college on Monday. This is something I have wanted to do for many years!

  128. Jessica says:

    I want to learn to sew knitwear and draft more of my own patterns.

  129. sarahk says:

    My ultimate sewing goal is learn to draft patterns. I have several old books on drafting children’s patterns–just need to find the time. I would also like to resize something, I have a 1930′s dress pattern that is too small that I would like to size up but I’m too scared!

  130. Deana Wells says:

    I am currently sitting on #1 of my to-do list. I REALLY need to recover this chair!! It is very loved by the kids—but what finally put it over the edge is the syrup handprint that my littlest smeared on the seat! UGH! I have some turquoise Nigella hidden away that would look very pretty, but then the chair would have to be locked away in my craft room…..

  131. Libby says:

    My sewing goal is quite lofty…and perhaps somwhat unrealistic. I intend to make all my christmas gifts this year! Guess I’d better get started on that huh?

  132. Sonya says:

    My immediate goal is to sew a skirt. I’m just getting back into sewing since last sewing in… well, a long time ago. Straight seams would be good too!

  133. Kerri says:

    I have just volunteered to make simple bags for a group of 24 women. Now I have to draft a pattern just for them, start sewing and be finished within 2 months! I’m really excited.

  134. jennifer says:

    My sewing goal is to successfully “translate” the hieroglyphics of the Japanese pattern book I bought into clothing that actually fits me. It’s a good measure of what skills I know intuitively after a long hiatus away from sewing. After a hilarious first try on a “practice” blouse I’ve learned I know a lot – but still have a ways to go!
    cheers! (loving that AB Nigella line!)

  135. busy says:

    I would like to learn how to size up a vintage pattern. Most of them are in very tiny sizes. As the years increased so did sizes. A size 32 bust I do not have. I’d like to learn to turn a size 10 pattern into my size without disturbing the line of the garment.

  136. veronica says:

    to finish my quilt by october 1. YIKES!

  137. Becky says:

    My immediate goal is to create a mass of quilted Christmas ornaments to send in place of a Christmas card this year . I have made a few, and they seem to be going pretty quickly.

    After that, a baby quilt. For someone else.

  138. Amy says:

    My sewing goal is to make more hand-made gifts for friends and family, rather than buying something impersonal for birthdays, holidays, and other celebrations (this of course requries forethought and patience).

  139. Ros says:

    I would like to finally make a pattern using an old favorite pair of pants and recreate them.

  140. Alison says:

    My goals are to finish the projects I have cut out but haven’t yet started to sew by the end of the month. As well as to start and finish the projects I have planned and been meaning to start for over a month (skirts, pj pants, bags etc) by December. My biggest project I’d like to finish by October – roman shades for the living room window – I’ve had the fabric for 4 years, but have never made roman shades so I’m a little nervous. It’s a big window, so I want them to look perfect.

  141. Erin says:

    My short term goal would be to make more time to actually sew. I think a workspace other than the dining room table would help. A long term goal would be to learn how to adapt patterns and tailor clothes for a better fit.

  142. Geri says:

    My goal is to learn to machine applique(sigh) and it’s taking a REALLY long time to learn it.

  143. Jean says:

    My hope is to recover our glider (in Joel Dewberry Aviary!)- and sew fall jackets for my children- I have not made anything lined yet- and I would like to add flannel for an extra layer of warmth so I have a huge learning curve. Plus I am having a difficult time finding a cute children’s jacket with lining and a collar- so I have an additional goal of either finding one or learning to modify a pattern to add one!

  144. Lorraine says:

    I have just received a book for my birthday on making skirts , it involves designing your own pattern so maybe by next summer i will be wearing my own creation

  145. Chris says:

    To make a satchel or overnight bag that looks good, but withstands the use. Something with piping and trim.

  146. Natalie says:

    I would love to be able to make my own clothes one day. No patterns. Just my imagination. I think the biggest challenge is taking a 2-dimensional design/sketch and converting it into a 3-dimensional piece of clothing. How do you do that? I can’t muster enough courage to finish a handbag, so I reckon I have a long way to go :)

  147. dianne says:

    I really, really want to have a hand-made Christmas, so I’m getting ready to sew skirts for the nieces and tablerunners for my sisters and mom. I’d love to try some softies too. Of course, I was going to be completely done with all of it by now…guess I’d better get started! :)

  148. Sarah says:

    I really want to learn to draft my own patterns.

  149. MrsHaley says:

    My baby is getting so big and the slings and wraps I made when she was a tiny infant are too small for her now. I would make some more ring and pouch slings that will fit her and me better … and I would save the scarps for quilting, which I just learned how to do … and learned that I love!

  150. Janin says:

    My next goal for this summer had been sewing the perfect dress, better to say to find the perfect pattern. Since I didn’t reached that goal untill now, it’s still on my agenda. I’ve got atleast 4 patterns to test still.

  151. Libby says:

    Ever since the Fabulous pix from Bag month, I have been inspired to make a bag. Since I’ve only made quilts in the past, I’m going to use a pattern but try to really get creative with it and Enjoy the process!!

  152. upstateLisa says:

    I would like to learn to sew knits including spandex type fabrics (I can do cotton). I have a little figure skater and I would like to make an outfit or two for her. Besides that, my quilting dream is to make a new york beauty quilt someday!

  153. saraeden says:

    i have finally managed to learn to put zips in things this has been something i have wanted to do for over 20 years !! so im glad ive finally managed it …. yay !!
    Sara x

  154. Amanda says:

    It is my goal to open up my own etsy shop and sell some handmade things. I am not sure what though since there are so many things I like to make and I have so little time, but I want to make being creative a larger part of my day.

  155. Liz says:

    I want to make my own bias tape. I’ve had a little gadget for years, and maybe writing this down will encourage me to use it. Placemats and napkins first I think.

  156. Jeanne says:

    To start in making fall/winter clothes for my toddler and baby before out second baby arrives.

  157. andrea says:

    Funny you should ask because I was just trying to do a simple ruffle and it just was not working… so my goal (for today anyway) is to master the ruffle! As for the future, would love to make some skirts (waiting for sew what skirts from amazon) to be delivered and then I shall tackle that!

  158. kari says:

    I want to make some skirts and a table runner from Bend the Rules Sewing!

  159. prettypinkboutique says:

    I want to learn to make tote bags. Part of my efforts to live more “green”. I love the ones at pinklemonadeboutique. First must learn about stabalizer. A good end of summer project.

  160. Marlana says:

    I just bought a new machine and can’t wait to get a few minutes to set it up and try it out. I plan on making some more pajama pants for my 7 yo Grandson. I also have to sew a halloween costume for a girlfriend – no pattern, just a google picture. Challenges of time more than a challenge on my creative brain.

    I enjoy your blog. Thanks for writing it.

    Marlana

  161. Tami says:

    I really would like to work up the courage to sew a pair of slacks for my husband. He’s been asking for over 4 yrs and I just haven’t brought myself to doing so.

  162. Kathy says:

    My goal is to use scraps to make a quilt, which includes learning to make a quilt! I’m sure it’ll be fun :)

  163. Alicia H. says:

    My goal is to just start sewing. Something. Anything. I have everything I need, now I just need to muster up the courage to go for it.

  164. carrie says:

    My goal for this year is to learn how to sew a button down shirt that fits.

  165. Carolyn says:

    I am interested in sewing the decor for my baby’s nursery… this would include pillows, a valance, dust ruffle for the crib. I’ve got less than three months to get it done, plus painting and other stuff!!!

  166. Jane Weston says:

    I’d like to get better at sewing curves.

  167. Amy says:

    My immediate goal is to finish sewing the drapes for our dining room. Then I need to finish a table runner that I promised to my aunt several months ago. Fabric sacks for shopping will come after that!

  168. erin says:

    make a bedskirt and a duvet for my bedroom. easy enough, i think.

  169. mamafitz says:

    to get the window treatments made for the living room and dining room. by christmas. we’ve lived here for 3 years. i’ve had the fabric and hardware almost a year.

  170. Emily says:

    I’d like to learn (and put into practice) some professional finishing techniques.

  171. Leslie says:

    My goal is to learn to sew more cleanly. I am not engaged, nor even in a serious relationship, but when the day comes, I would love to be able to sew my own wedding dress and have it turn out looking not-handmade :)

  172. Kate says:

    I also have a really long list, and have already started Christmas presents! But, my biggest project on the horizon is a big-boy quilt for my two year old to go on a twin bed.

  173. Becky says:

    My goal is to finish up projects that I have already started, I have way too many!

  174. Oiyi says:

    My goal is to learn to sew a garment, either a skirt or a top.

  175. supa says:

    Pattern/fit alteration, for sure. I’m teaching myself from an old book, but it’s slow going!

  176. Ginger says:

    zippers. i need to learn how to put in zippers!

  177. Melissa says:

    I have an appallingly long list of sewing projects I want to get to sometime, but right now my big goal is to finish FIVE quilts by Christmas. HA HA HA HA HA [evil laugh].

  178. Shannon H. says:

    My goal is to relearn how to do a proper hem. I’ll be needing to hem my husband’s uniform pants once March is here, and I would rather do it myself rather than pay someone to do them.

  179. liz elayne says:

    i am ready to tackle the dreaded zipper. with my new machine, i know it can’t be that hard!

  180. Carla says:

    I want to learn to bind a quilt, and machine quilting. I make purses a lot, and I want to draft my own patterns. I’ve done some basic ones, but I want to learn a lot more about pattern drafting. My grandfather was a draftsman. There must be some pattern drafting in me somewhere! LOL!

  181. Carey says:

    My goal is to learn how to adapt patterns to my measurements, instead of slavishly following the size that fits my bust measurement but gets nowhere near my waist measurement! And actually, my longer-term goal is to take a basic drafting and/or draping class, to start designing my own clothes!

  182. Lynne S says:

    My goal is to use more of my scraps before they overtake my home!

  183. Risa says:

    I want to make some space dedicated to my sewing. This will let me sew more (yay!) and try new things. I really want to start quilting too!

  184. Stacy says:

    My sewing goal is to sew up more of my stash (so I can make room for new fabrics!)

  185. Wendy says:

    Drafting patterns would probably be my goal. I’d like to come up with some of my own handbag patterns. Last night I made a dress for my daughter without a pattern. So cute on the hanger, but it’s about 2″ too small around the chest and won’t even fit over her head! So disappointing. I’d like to get better about that kind of thing.

  186. Laurie Stone says:

    Last year one of my sewing goals was to sew the birthday cards that I made for the women; mothers, sisters, daughters, in my life. This year I decided to make each a pillow and include the men. Two down 12 to go.

  187. Paula says:

    My goal is to just SEW! LOL! I have all these projects that I want to do (like making T-shirt dresses for my girls, making some skirts and shirts – yikes! – for myself). I did get up the courage to make some pillowcase gowns for my girls. And I just did my FIRST sewing project WITHOUT A PATTERN! I am way excited about that! It is still all straight lines, but I made a pocket all by myself and the seam is INSIDE! LOL!!! It would be nice to have some NON WalMart fabric. LOL!!!

  188. Jen says:

    My secret (or not secret, now) sewing goal is to be able to make a dress for myself that fits well and looks good enough to wear to wear to my fashion-y office. I’m not even close to ready for that yet, but I feel like all my little sewing projects are building my skills so that I’ll actually be able to do it someday.

  189. Stefanie says:

    My goal is to ultimately make all of my clothes. I have made a few shirts and this weekend I am going to try some skirts. Once those two things our conquered the possibilities are honestly endless.

  190. Laurie Stone says:

    Last year one of my sewing goals was to sew the birthday cards that I made for the women; mother, sisters, daughters, in my life. This year I decided to make each a pillow and include the men. Two down 12 to go.
    Laurie

  191. Mandy says:

    My sewing goal is to try and be more patient with my sewing. I think every project I do, I get a little better, but I’m still working on it!

  192. chelle says:

    I would like to sew another dress for my daughter and *maybe* some pants for my baby boy … Ooo and a couple more bags :D

  193. Monique says:

    I would love to work up the courage to make my own purse. Seeing all the purses last month really inspired me.

  194. Sarah says:

    I need to make roman shades for my sister’s house. The sewing seems pretty straight-forward, but I’m a little worried about all that hardware…

  195. Jessi says:

    we just moved in to a new apartment and I am making curtains for the place. I’ve never done any thing that big before, so it will be a challenge, but I am excited for it.

  196. Nicole says:

    My ultimate sewing goal is to make a pair of jeans that really fit me.

  197. Lydia says:

    I have not been able to resist all the great fabrics that have been out lately. My goal is to finish the quilt I’ve been working on so I can start the next three that I purchased fabrics for!

  198. Kristine says:

    I need to start crossing things off my “to finish” list before I add more things to it…it’s pretty long…

  199. Lori says:

    Um, where to start? I am just learning to sew so my goals are many! To make gifts for my bunko group, Christmas presents, learn how to line a dress without instructions, maybe even start a small business someday (and that’s the tip of the iceberg)!

  200. Celeste says:

    I’m heading out to the fabric store this evening, in fact, to grab some supplies for a mei tai for my husband–so that’s what’s up next.

  201. Kathryn says:

    I want to learn how to make a quilt. I’ve been becoming gradually reaquainted with my sewing machine in the last few weeks, making loads of things for my kids and their friends, but I really am working up to making a quilt.

  202. Shelly says:

    I would love to just have time to sew more than once a week…and make a bag for every woman I know!

  203. DML says:

    I’ve got plenty on my ‘to-do’ list, but the one that’s probably scaring me the most is my idea for a handbag. I want something sturdy and useful and have sorted out most of the design in my mind, but I think it will be a while before I get enough courage together to start making the thing…

  204. Jeannine says:

    I just found out that my best friend from college is getting married in May. My new goal is to make him a traditional, but modern (traditional in pattern, modern in fabric choice) hand-quilted quilt for a wedding gift.

    I think I need to start now. My slowness in sewing mixed with a very active 2 year old… it’s gonna take awhile.

  205. Sally K. says:

    My sewing goal is to finish the projects I have brewing. I have fabric purchased, patterns, and supplies … but I keep getting distracted with making bags, zipper pouches, & skirts. I need to buckle down and finish something with a bit more longevity.

  206. Beth says:

    My goal is to design and make my own original handbag. I’ve used tutuorials and patterns before, but I want to try it do it all for myself.

  207. laeroport says:

    I really must overcome my fear of zippers. And get to work on the 8 baby gifts I need between now and November!

  208. My goal is to get my ebook finished! It’s been looming half finished for too long! LOL!!!

  209. heidi says:

    i have a goal to learn to use patterns. my grandmother taught me to sew from measurements and by eye. turns out well, but i really have no idea how to sew from a “pattern”. i would also love to learn how to make a pattern. first things first i suppose!

  210. beki says:

    My goal at the moment is to sew up some gifts and to work on some new purses – this seems to be my perpetual goal!

  211. Stephanie says:

    My main sewing goal is to be able to put a zipper in well. It would vastly expand the projects I could make, as well as my wardrobe.

  212. Claire says:

    I want to make myself a skirt and top. I have never done either and I really want to give it a go!

  213. melissa says:

    my goal is to get BACK into the sewing room!

  214. Alicia A. says:

    I want to start sewing things for other people- to buy! : )

  215. I want to learn how to get a better fit out of the clothes I make and the ones I already have, so I am going to take a Women’s tailoring class this coming September

  216. Alisa says:

    I want to make myself a skirt that fits properly. I have the new book “Sew What Skirts” and I’m hoping to be successful.

  217. Dj says:

    I want to learn how to take my favorite skirt and make a pattern out of it, without taking it apart.

  218. My sewing goals include several projects for good friends. They deserve whatever sewing I can do for them. I also have to get started on this years Christmas gifts. But the big goal is to get over my unhappiness with the excess weight I am carrying around (I am working out at Curves–8qweimnbvvzdfd[
    +they say I have lost 15 lbs and a total of about 31 inches and my blood pressure is getting lower), walking Duncan (our tri-color sheltie) every night for at least 20 minutes, and trying to watch my intake). But I am still about 25-30 lbs overweight. I have not been sewing nice clothes for myself because I just do feel anything will look good. I had my own cute style when I weighed 110, but feel that I have no style at 156 lbs and 5’2″. I’ll be 62/63 in a few days, 125 lbs might be a very good goal. I know, a bit depressing, but it felt good just to get it out and admit it. Thanks.

  219. Keri says:

    My goal is to make some more work clothes., Cute summer tops are fun and all – but not really working for the office. And then fall’s coming too.

    I also really REALLY want to make a scrap quilt. Guess I need to work on getting more scraps!

  220. My goal is to become a better seamstress. I am taking a sewing class at the local JC and REALLY want to me able to make myself cute flirty vintage skirts and dresses.

  221. Shelley says:

    I am all about the goals! I want to take some more advanced sewing lessons this fall, open up an Etsy shop, make myself a diaperbag/backpack, make some shopping totes, and win FFF!

  222. Kari says:

    I want to finish my first quilt you can actually snuggle under. I’ve done a few tablerunners, baby quilts, quilted pillow covers and even a quilted tote bag, but never a larger quilt. The blocks are all cut out and about 1/3 sewn. Extra exciting is that it is with fabrics from some of my favorite designers: Heather Bailey, Amy Bulter, Jennifer Paganelli… maybe I can play hooky from work to sew? :-)

  223. Jennalou says:

    I would really love to work on turning my original pattern into ones that others can use too :D Also I want to continue to strive to make things that will help save the planet and recycle materials.

  224. Heather says:

    I need to finish two strip quilts that I started to show some friends how to strip quilt.

  225. Ann says:

    My sewing goal is to do more charity sewing; give more things away. I’ve reached a point in my life where I don’t need all these things I sew but I can’t seem to stop!

  226. georgia says:

    My goal is cold-weather clothes for my kids. Summer clothes I’ve got down pat. Now that I have a serger I think this is a real possibility!

  227. Kathleen says:

    I would love to learn more about adapting patterns to my own measurements. That and actually learning how to adjust the dials on my serger.

  228. capello says:

    i want to figure out how to slipcover some chairs.

  229. Jessica Hood says:

    i’m pretty new to sewing & cannot sew a straight line to save my life. i’d like to get that down so my projects don’t look so crummy…and so i can sew ric rac on!

  230. samantha says:

    Any sort of clothes- they scare me. I have sew what! skirts sitting in my craft room, taunting me. I’m working up the nerve to actually try a pattern instead of just reading one…

  231. Tuesday says:

    I am getting ready to make a diaper bag for my friend, it’s her third little boy, and she deserves a nice new bag made from Girlfriends fabric ;) LOLOL….I’m eager to start it and can’t wait.

    Oh, and I need to finishe a few purses.

    oh, and some fall clothes…

    oh, and some curtains…

    shall I go on ?? LOL.

  232. katie says:

    I would really love one day to sew myself some pants one day, maybe some capris? But no elastic waist! I can finally do an invisible zipper, which was my latest goal accomplished. So maybe a side-zip pair of pants of some kind. I would also like to be able to sew a purse or bag that has a zippered top. I always use magnetic snaps, but it bothers me to walk around with the contents of my purse half-exposed. So maybe my goal is to use zippers in more ways and get comfortable with attaching them.

  233. Mary says:

    I want to finished the three handbags I have cut out but not yet finished.

  234. Lisa says:

    I would like to just finish my list! Designing would be great, but just to finish the ever growing list of basics–pajamma pants for the fam, grocery bags, a vest for me. The list grows, yet what I complete doesn’t go as quickly!

  235. Didi says:

    Hi there,
    I am about to sew a cover for my sofa, something which looks like a plaid, but which is not (sorry for this weird writing, I am French… !!).
    And I will sew some cover for pillows too & to match with my curtains.
    Same main color (pink as raspberries), but different prints (flowers, stripes, dots & plain).
    The fabrics I have chosen look like your Barefoot Roses collection in fact.
    As I am a beginner, I wish I will succeed ;)

    Thanks a bunch for your blog, I love it.

  236. Linda says:

    I’d like to get a quilt finished that I’m working on in time to post back to Australia for my dd’s birthday next month.

  237. joyce says:

    I want to make a duvet cover for our bed. I hope to start today. I have made several of them but this one will have a pieced top so it will be more of a challenge.

  238. Chelsea says:

    My primary goal is to be able to see an outfit I like and copy it, which requires skill and material. The latter (especially as I like patterns from Anthropologie) is difficult, but I also have found sewing a bit tricky with any material that doesn’t stay put when I sew: knits, thin pieces, etc. I also have never sewed anything beyond cotton so the thicker materials give me slight shivers. I also have this gorgeous peacock pillowcase from the 30′s that I want to do something with — even know the something — but it has no pattern, thus looking at a design I like and going snip, snip on material I won’t find again is important.

  239. Valerie says:

    My sewing goal for today is to get started on a mini-quilt. My fabric is already washed and ready to go, I just need to make sure I don’t let any other “projects” get in the way today and make it happen! After that, new pillows for my breakfast nook, Christmas pillows for my sofas in the living room, and a long, long list after that…:)

  240. Heather says:

    I would like to make skirts for my daughter and me. I normally sew small items or quilts so clothing for myself will be a new adventure.

  241. Angela says:

    I need to finish a pair of shorts for my toddler. I also want to make some grocery bags!

  242. Christy says:

    I want to make a skirt that fits! I bought Sew What! Skirts and am going to try to make a pattern to fit my measurements. Store bought patterns never seem to fit right.

  243. Ashley says:

    My goal is to make the leap from bags & accessories to clothing!

  244. Michelle says:

    Really, all I want to do is sew some clothes for my kiddos. I figure, that’s a good place to start, they’re small, shouldn’t take up too much material, smaller items, smaller mistakes, right?

  245. rohanknitter says:

    I have the Amy Butler skirt pattern so my next goal is to make that and do an invisible zipper for the first time.

    My goal is to actually get accomplished everything I tell myself needs to be done. I’m really good at planning, not so much at following the plan.

    My only goal at the moment is to finish the eight thousand projects that are currently works-in-progress. I’m finding it impossible to think beyond them! :)

    Personally, I just want to install a zipper successfully. I’ve taken about a five year hiatus from sewing and I miss it terribly. All the new patterns floating around have gotten me re-energized, so to speak, and the dreaded zipper is the only thing I fear right now. My mother would always say, “Here, let me do it,” because it frustrated her to watch me struggle over it. So, buttonholes? Yes, like a pro. Zippers? Not quite yet. Oh, I am drooling over that Kaffe Fassett on the right with the gorgeous rose!

    Well, with this being my last month of work before being full-time, my main sewing goal is just to do as much of it as much as possible. I know I’ll find a way to fit in a little sewing time once I’m working more, but right now there are so many projects on my to-do list: linen dress, pillow covers, dog bed, and more! Better get to work.

    My sewing goal is to learn how to troubleshoot problems with my new sewing machine better. It seems I run into a problem and it goes weeks before I actually have the patience to try to fix it. My goal is to be able to fix these issues on the spot, w/ minimal frustrations and just be able to keep on sewing.

    My goal is simply to sew more. In the last few months, I have been sewing more frequently, and realized how much I enjoy sewing, and wondered why I haven’t taken the time to sew more! I have a long list of projects I want to do!

  252. Christine says:

    One of my main sewing goals over the next few months is to make my daughter’s Halloween costume.

  253. Heather says:

    My goal is a new machine that won’t drive me crazy sometimes. Of course, another goal would be to find the owner’s manual :)

    Another goal is to make it through my fabric piles. I have everything planned out, but I am lacking motivation as I am pregnant and sleeping tons!

  254. I would love to learn how to draft more of my own patterns… Also, to get more of my “to do” sewing list accomplished:)
