You guys. I think it is this time of year but right now I am buzzing with so many ideas for creative projects. Some evenings I have to make myself go to bed instead of googling DIYs or knitting “just one more round”. I love being in this inspired, energetic state of mind. And I am trying to make the most of it.
So here’s some of my current creative projects!
After being in a bit of a knitting slump lately, I have picked up some of my yarny projects a lot more these last few days.
Itty bitty Raglan jumper
Well, this project is a bit of a bummer. I shared about it last time and my hope to not run out of yarn. Well, I am pretty sure now I will! Which is NOT motivating me to keep going.
Also, the proportions seem kind of weird to me. I followed the instructions of the pattern for how long to make the body, but it seems super short to me. In comparison the wide sleeves seem kind of odd.
I am really not sure what to do with this now. Continue the sleeves until I run out? Omit sleeves and instead add length in the body and treat it as slip-over instead?
Or just throw it in the bin? Oh boy! What do you guys think?
For a while I have been dreaming about knitting the Moby Sweater by PetiteKnit. (In a way, I dream of making ALL of her patterns, they are just so gorgeous). I got a sweater quantity of merino wool during Black Friday. It was sat in my stash until this week when I decided to just go for it!
On Ravelry, the difficulty rating of the pattern is 5 out of 5. Ha! We will see how I fare. So far I am really enjoying myself. However, I also already managed to make a small mistake. But it is on the top of the back yoke, so I figure it will be concealed by my hair…
When the temperatures get warmer I always feel so inspired to sew! Plus, seeing everyone’s creations for Me Made May makes me super eager to make all of the things!
It is finally finished! I had a hard time with the button hole (and many other parts) but I made it! I already wore it a couple of times and really like it! I haven’t managed to get good pictures of me in the skirt yet, but here are a few shots of it anyway.
In my last update post, I showed you the fabric strips I had cut out for scrunchies. Well, now they are finished!
However, I already lost one I think. Or SJ hid it somewhere, which is very possible.
A drawstring bag for toys
I shared recently how I managed to recreate the Montessori Animal Match Game. It was a really fun DIY. I sewed a bag, to store the game and I think SJ really likes it!
I recently looked through some of my fabric and pattern stash and tried to plan what I will make out of which material.
This little exercise was very inspiring and I realised I had a few jersey fabrics and a need for T-Shirts, with both long and short sleeves.
So, I used some fabric I once gotten for free to make a “practice” Jackson Tee. This was super helpful to determine what the size looked like on me, if I preferred it shorter or wider, etc.
The T-Shirt ended up fitting Edd much better tan me, so I gave it to him. Now I am planning to cut out a few more versions of the pattern.
It’s quite an easy sew and the instructions are really clear and thorough. I am a big fan of Helen’s closet patterns.
This is another jersey pattern. So far, I have only managed to print and cut it, but I am excited to hopefully make this during the next month as well.
What about you?
Are you working on any creative projects right now? I’d love to hear about them!
