Yeap you saw it!
It’s official, this blog is now http://www.sewdoitemma.com
I’ve been thinking about going for it for a while and have finally taken the crunch!
Also it’s my first day of my fabric buying hiatus! It gone well so far. I’ve put my time into doing this domain, house stuff and walking the dog.
In my head I’ve got hundreds of ideas with what fabric from my collection should go with what project/pattern. Sure, they’ll be limits because of meterage/yardage or what type of fabric but I’m going to start to try and categorically organise them.
This has been on the cards for ages but it’s not going to be easy with the amount of fabric I do have.
First of all, I think I’m going to set fabrics and patterns that are in my make nine.
Next I’m going to take all the fabrics out of the small Billy’s then (or maybe do a shelf at a time) measure, photograph and record each piece. Either spreadsheet it first and then add it on the Cora App, which I’ve had for yonks and not really made use of it.
Once I’ve done the fabrics, I think I’m going to go through my big four patterns as I bet there’s patterns I’ve forgot about and have either doubled with a newer style or no longer “has that sparkle”. This could be another fabric destash as well but we’ll come to that bridge when it happens!
This is going to be a long process for me as I am planning to sew a few things, some with deadlines and also I’ve got things that I need to do around the house (boo, hiss).
Ok this is quite a ramble but it’s kinda good to put it out there and then you can see the difference when it’s done.
Speak soon with hopefully some new makes!
Happy sewing 🧵

Love your Make Nine, can’t wait to see your CCP parka. I wanted to make that but thought I’d start with something easier like SOI Coco.
I’m not on fabric ban, but my pattern stash is getting out of hand, especially when it comes to PDF ones – can’t destash those hahaha. Good luck on your organising 😀

Aww thank you!
I think my CCP Anorak will be last in the list because it’s the most complicated on the list and I’m hoping they (CCP) update there pattern sizing so I don’t have to do much grading. But if they don’t then it will persevere with the grading and will mock a toile before I even touch the beauty of a fabric I have!
