Can you believe it's almost 2015!? All around the blogosphere, wrap up posts are in full swing. I wanted to share some of my favorite projects from the past year and the projects I'm looking forward to next year.
Handbags & Accessories : Mini Pip
This year I went from working 7 days a week between Anthropologie and my parent's farm to just full time on the farm with THREE days a week to dedicate to sewing! This was a huge life change and it has allowed me to think more seriously about where I want my little bag business to go.
For 2015, I really want to focus on the construction of the bag. I've started adding a lot more hardware to each design and would love to continue with that theme. I've already designed a cross-body to put into production in the new year and have a few more bag ideas looming in my mind.
Clothing: Personal Sewing
2014 was a huge year for personal sewing and I already have a list of clothing I want to make for 2015. 2014 saw a few refashions, some adorable dresses and lots of pattern making. Since farming isn't the best place for a handmade dress, 2015 will be geared towards more wearable items.
I conquered my fear of swimwear a few months ago - and got into knitwear – but this year my new challenge is active wear! I'm currently training for my first marathon so I've been running 5 days a week which is taking a toll on my current running wardrobe. Running apparel is SO EXPENSIVE and since I make almost everything else in my wardrobe, why not try running gear? Fehr Trade has some amazing patterns I want to try out.
Some other items on my must sew list are:
Boxy Tops (I'm loving this style lately)
I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!
