WIP Wednesday - Moving Right Along in March

The kids are off for spring break this week, so I decided to take some time off and just relax with them.  Which meant that I got to do some sewing.  ;)  I'm actually getting close to having my entire list for the month marked off!  Of course if I'd stop adding more to it, I'd finish it for sure!

Still have a little more of this fabric, maybe enough for another wallet or 2!
The second Dachshund wallet came together MUCH faster...and now I have an order for a Shih Tzu wallet...maybe I should get into dog lover's wallets? 

Next up is the final Sydney purse for an order.  I keep thinking that I should make an extra to list on Etsy because the purses are perfect for every day carrying what you need, but I just haven't had any unclaimed sewing time!  I'm going to try to sneak in at least one more knit shirt for myself this week, need to work on cutting down my stash!
Sneak peek of the Super Fandom Sydney - More pics coming soon!
Don't forget, right now the ChrisW Designs FaceBook group is having a BIG celebration for reaching 6,000 members and that includes a discount everyone can use and competitions to win free stuff!!

Current Projects:

  • Super fandom Sydney -Done!
  • Ruched Shirt - Going to try this one using some of my less fancy knit fabric, hopefully it is fast and flattering! 
  • Boon Dachshund wallet - I forgot how quick this wallet is, finished it totally in 2 days!! 
  • Nightmare Before Christmas Sydney purse   
  • Shih Tzu wallet - waiting for Spoonflower fabric

Current Crochet Projects:

  • WeeBee baby doll  -  arms and clothes left. Hair is on, and she's becoming a mermaid, tail is about 60% done!
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - 4 skeins in, now waiting for more yarn to arrive!

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

Fast knit shorts!  Modified a free pattern to make them 'long'
  • Handkerchief Purse
  • Bag of the Month - February and March - going to try to do at least 4 of the patterns before the club ends in June!
  • PJ shorts for the kids, too hot for pants soon, and considering how much growing has been going on lately, any pants I make now will end up as Capri pants by the time it's cold again... Did 2 pairs for my son, that's enough for now!  Remembered that I hate hemming...
  • custom knit leggings - Harry Potter marauder's map (?)
  • Tote bags using my new coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
