WIP Wednesday - Another Month Bites the Dust!

Totally not ready for it to be December tomorrow!  I managed to finish a few things over the break, but not as much as I hoped!  Once I get the sewing explosion cleaned up, I can focus on finishing up all the odds and ends of projects that got stashed and lost over the last few months...I think my January resolutions will involve the 'finish 2 UFO/WIP before starting something new' challenge I gave myself a few years ago...and there may be a fabric diet...
I'm pretty sure December will fly by 20% faster than November did...
I did manage to finish crocheting a hat last night, but it needs a button still, and this picture is nothing like the actual color (it's MUCH prettier in person), but yay for almost completely finishing something!
Actual color is much more 'purple'
Now to start on the Lapis Lazuli fingerless gloves for my youngest minion...and finish up the hat with a button so it can either be worn, sold, or donated!
One side of mine, I'm working ahead of the class!  ;)
Tomorrow is the first day of the Emma Sew along, so make sure you are ready!  I'm almost done with mine, now to write up all the sew along posts...

WIP: (Stuff sitting out on my work area and taking up space)



  November December NEED to finish list:

  • Pattern Testing, almost finished!
  • another MLP purse (Emma)
  • Wizard of Oz Window Shopper
  • Fleece Mermaid tails for orders
  • Flannel infinity scarves...I have bolts of flannel that would make adorable scarves!  My kids have requested some and I'd love to make a few for the scarf, hat and mitten tree they do at the elementary school...
  • PJ pants/nightgowns for my own kids (been promising them some for a few years now...)
  • Harry Potter purse
  • Springs Creative Ambassador project - almost finished with 2!

Unclaimed mermaid tail fabrics!

The "I've given up on deadlines and just want them done at some point"-list:

  • Sew hoods onto towels - 2 more to go...
  • March BOM -Just needs some rivets and Pirate Bunnybeard will be on etsy!
  • Cross body strap on the Boronia's not that much work, but I keep procrastinating.
  • Serendipity Owl Bag - needs just topstitching and handles attached, really need to get this one finished and listed on etsy!  It's a perfect fall bag or gift for an owl lover!
  • Crayon rolls - keep sewing my cut ones, I have so much awesome fabric for these! 
  • Tulip pouches - started cutting out some fun ones! Perfect for pencil cases or glasses cases or ....! (pattern)
  • Wisteria Wallets - Need to work on the 2 more that are ready to go!
  • Embroidered pillow covers - need to cut a back piece after I figure out if I'm doing a zipper or envelope closure...I'm thinking of using my invisible zippers and doing another one from the same set of far the fish is in the lead for what will be stitched next.  Still procrastinating because I don't want to have to lint roll the entire sewing area after I cut my next piece.  Not even exaggerating.
  • Sedimental Quilt- working on binding while I watch TV - almost half done! - Took a little hiatus after a spider crawled out of it.  I think the spider has died/moved on, so it might be okay to go back to it...
  • Brandt's Boulevard in sugar skulls, another one in "Girly" fabric for a later date



  • Back at the Ava Cowls - put buttons on most of the finished ones, still have more I started and need to finish!
  • Working on a few hats, trying to find an amazing and fast pattern...
  • Giraffe photographer is coming along, one horn and two ears in!
  • Sea turtle lovey - well....the shell is on, and it's kind of obvious that one fin is bigger, so he's a sea turtle with a 'lucky' fin...or he'll hold his blanket there...
  • Mermaid lovey - Sea blanket is done, head is done (no hair), started on tail. Giant head is kind of freaking me out, so I need to finish her!  - I really want to redo her head smaller, it's probably too big for the blanket...


  • Embroidered kitchen/hand towels - want to use up my towel stash!- Did several more for the craft shows, now to make some for Etsy!
  • Hooded towels:  Pinkie Pie, Jack Skellington, Star Wars characters, more Pokemon, more Ponies...
  • Keep cutting out my backlog of bows and keychains.  I didn't cut out everything in my stash, so I need to keep working on them!
  • Stitch out more couch pillows (and finish them) - I'd like to get the pillow forms out of my craft area and onto the couches!
  • More patches! - going to test them as magnets and see if my glue is strong enough to hold

NIL (Next in Line-Things I plan on and want to do, but haven't gotten around to yet...)

  • May Bag of the Month- Swoon Brooklyn - I think I'm going with a Doctor Who random toss fabric that glows in the dark and blue glitter vinyl.
  • Alice in Wonderland Bonnie
  • Venom Messenger Bag (considering THIS pattern by RLR)
  • Jack Skellington Messenger Bag
  • Lotus Purse
  • Crayon Rolls - These never end
  • Rosie Tsum Tsum purse
  • January Bag of the Month (Backgammon Bag) - Either in some Effervescence fabric or maybe the Zelda stained glass fabric
  • Quilted pillow covers - Sasquatch fabric is ready to go, just need some spare time!

UFO (Unfinished Objects that are already started but I have no set time to work on and don't want to forget about them forever!).

  • Bella II in Tula Pink Foxfield - outside is done, inside is cut and waiting for me to finish, already have someone that wants it!
  • Doctor Who Pick a Pocket - all the pieces are cut, just needs finished!
  • Goldfish Lovey - fish is made, bowl is mostly made, needs put together
  • Dragon Lovey - pieces and the blanket done
  • Serendipity Hip in MLP fabric with vinyl bottom
