But when I saw my fellow bloggers' lists, I got inspired and decided to make my own.
I ended up enjoying it- it's like a pat on the back, and it's great to focus on the positive! I DID make some things I'm proud of this year! I CAN do it! Even though I'm a newbie I will continue to improve. Bring on 2013! :)
So here are my top five- all firsts in some way.
Taffy blouse- my first experience with a bias cut top, and chiffon. I'm so happy it worked out!
I would quite like to make this top again...
New Look 6808- Oh boy did I learn a lot here. My first experience trying to fit a top and much blood sweat and tears as I went it alone. Okay, I did have the internet, but that's not an ideal way to learn, I've decided, lol. Again, another top I would like to make again! (Gotta make all that hard work fitting it worth it!)
My Miette! Of course!! I knitted my first garment, of which I am very proud. I'm now an addicted knitter, thanks to this experience. And of course I am forever grateful to Gail who hosted the Miette Knitalong with me! She is my wise teacher :)
The Renfrew top. My first time sewing with knit fabric and my first Sewaholic pattern. I know this pattern has a lot of fans in the blogosphere (lol, that word), and rightly so! Alright I'll say it again- yet another pattern I want to make more of :)
And last but not least- the Wool Circle Skirt- my first self drafted pattern.
So there we have it, my top five. I'm not a high volume sewer so at first I wasn't even sure I'd have enough finished projects, but whaddayaknow, I did! And you know what? I even like them. There, I like some things I've made. Success!
Oh and of course, Merry Christmas to everyone- see you in the New Year.
To get a bit sappy, I really love hearing from all of you and getting inspired by all the neat stuff you do! Thanks everyone :)
