Our first challenge in The Self Sewn Wardrobe Facebook group seems so long ago! Back when we only have a couple hundred group members, I hosted the “Wardrobe Challenge”. It was an awesome way to get know our own wardrobes and our fellow group members at the same time. Well, it’s time for the next challenge!
This challenge idea was suggested by Erin a few days ago, and I think it’s a great idea.
“I’ve Been Meaning To Make This”
What’s that mean? It means there’s a project or problem in your sewing room that you’ve been putting off, and you need a kick in the butt to make some progress.
It shouldn’t be hard to find a project like that- right?
If you haven’t already, go join The Self Sewn Wardrobe Group on Facebook!
Questions/Prompts for Stage 1:
- Define your “problem” project. Is it a particular pattern, a general fitting issue, problem sourcing fabric/supplies, an issue finding time?
- What’s one step you can take to get started? Do you need to pick a pattern or order fabric? Do you need to ask for some advice in the group? Do it!
- Share in the group how you’re going to accomplish this first step. I imagine this is going to be the most time consuming part of our challenge. People will be ordering fabric, scheduling time to sew, etc. Of course, everyone will be working at their own pace.
This Challenge is a little open-ended, but that’s how I like my life and the Self Sewn Wardrobe to be. Hard and fast rules can ruin the fun. While most stitchers will probably focus on garments, it’s ok to make another item during the challenge.
Don’t worry if you feel “behind”. A lot of the prompts, questions and processes during this challenge are the bread and butter of this group, so we won’t think that any questions or posts are out of place.
No pressure to participate! But, if you’ve found the group helpful, consider cheering on your fellow stitchers!
