Make Nine 2022

As I start to write this, it’s 3 days into this brand spanking new year and for the month of December 2021, I’ve been really narrowing down what I want to sew for the Make Nine Challenge 2022.

A lot of people don’t like set goals and although I started off well in 2021 (I completed 4 out of nine garments before April) but then all the patterns were like “make me Emma”! For some reason, for once this didn’t overwhelm me into a loss of sewjo, in fact I made over 70 items, most of which was clothing for myself apart from one or two presents including a Jude Beanie and a Jackson Pullover for Paolo, my husband.

I’m trying to make this years goals more realistic using mostly fabrics and patterns from my stash, which seems way too sensible for me.

But anyway here’s my make nine 2022 plans …

Magna Pants from Jenny Rushmore of Cashmerette Patterns.
The Paper Theory’s Zadie is the only pattern being carried over from last year’s Make Nine.
I’m opting for the shorts when I do the Carolyn PJ’s
Hoping to make a linen Remy!
I think these will be my new to reach for when make them! I gotta feeling!
Spurred on from Yvette aka @blossomsandwich on Instagram from her recent vlog on her YouTube channel – gonna give the Dani’s a spin too!
I think this will be my first make nine project to tackle this year!
Yes, I’m on a whole trouser journey- can’t wait to make the Pietras!
There’s a gap of Skirts in my wardrobe, so opting for the Pocket Skirt this year.

So that’s my choices of patterns for my Make Nine 2022 and I’m planning to write a blog post with the choices of fabrics to go with each project, which I’m finalising at the moment.

I hope however you celebrated your holidays, it was a good period and regardless how it was I really hope 2022 is bigger and better for you.

Sending love and happy sewing wishes …
