MY SEWING PATTERN COLLECTION
I’ve started digitizing and cataloguing my collection of sewing patterns over on Flickr, many of which are retro and vintage. I’m constantly adding to it as my collection grows. Feel free to browse through for inspiration. Click on the image below to go to my album to all my paper patterns.
This is the template I made and use to plan my own sewing projects, divided into seasons and with 6 projects for the year. It gives me a quick look at what I need to prep for the months ahead. You can write or draw your projects directly in the boxes or use a small sticky note for those ideas that aren’t permanent yet.
Feel free to print you for yourself.
2020 SEWING CALENDAR
Beth from Sew DIY has created a dated 2020 calendar that you can print out in various sizes to keep track of your basic project plans if you want to be a bit more specific. Here you can highlight any special occasions throughout the year you may want to sew for.
