Make that darn winter coat.
My procrastination on this project is fuelled by my fear. Luckily it was a mild winter this year because the muslin that I cut out last summer is still sitting in my sewing drawer. I just have to get over my fear and on with it!
I'm all for bringing back the hankie and switching to handkerchiefs has been on my to-do list for some time.
First, it is a small step towards environmental kindness. Think of all the trees that will be saved when I start using my hankies! Never mind the water that is wasted in the production of tissue and the environmental costs for transporting this product.
I have a metre of white 100% cotton fabric and quite the collection of trim. All that is left to do is start cutting out squares and decide on how to decorate it.
Thirdly, I always thought that hankies were tres chic. I don't know how they ever went out of style?
Shop from my fabric stash
Okay, here is a tough one. Of course, I say this before I score some of that raw silk sitting at Fabricland at 50% off. Oh, this might take some will power.
My biggest challenge this year is to stay away from fabric stores and only use the fabric I find around the house and in my stash. It shouldn't be a tough one, I have quite the fabric stash. But somehow I think this one might be a tough one.
