Here's a breakdown of what I've made, nearly made (i.e started but not finished yet...!) and mended. All things I wouldn't have done had I not started this project. So I'm happy! I'm also happy about how the other lovely folks who joined me on this adventure have found the year - Read Viv's round up on her blog HERE
Here's my roundup...
|Nightshirt, top from a men's shirt and a scarf from shirt scraps|
|Two dresses from 1970s patterns a jumper 2 cardi conversion...|
|Golden joinery on a t-shirt and top and buttons sewn back onto a jacket..|
|Badge into brooch and long dress into skirt/short dress - I wore this a lot as a skirt over the summer|
oh yes and I did have a go at learning to crochet...I made a lovely Beret for Timmy Cat...
|My attempts at crochet...|
Looking at these items - along with what I spent over the year - which you can read here - It really makes me realise how little I actually need and how I made the clothes I already have work much harder.
I still have things to be altered and patterns to be made up and I don't feel I have missed out at all during the past year. In fact I feel richer as a result.
I've met some truly fantastic people, learnt new skills, seen sheep have their hair cut and changed the way I think about clothes. I'd recommend everyone give this a try - even for a short time and see what benefits it could bring you. ;-)
