It is literally weeks after I had originally planned to share this post but finally I am excited to share my Make Nine plans for 2021. Last year was the first time I have ever participated in this challenge. At the time I set last year’s goal, I was slightly apprehensive that I would not be able to meet it. As a result of setting the goal, I ended up feeling extremely determined to complete it and in the process, grew into the confident and creative sewing practice that I enjoy today. I ended up making many, many more items than the nine I selected last year, but they all helped continue to fill out my handmade wardrobe and many helped me grow my skill set in one way or another.
This year, those two tenets are the main focus of my selections once again: 1. a need and/or want for a particular garment in my wardrobe, and 2. practicing skills I wish to refine and/or learning new sewing skills. Here’s what I have planned for this year’s #makenine.
