30 Minutes A Day Challenge ~ Week 1

So this year is getting off to a terrible start. I haven't done much sewing at all.... and I have no good excuse for it... just call me a slacker or lazy or something. lol

I know that you can get a great deal done if you dedicate 30 minutes a day to something sewing related. For the rest of this month, I will challenge myself to fit in 30 minutes a day for sewing.

No reason to wait until the beginning of the week to start. I starting last Thursday. Here's my first week:

Thursday: Traced off the pattern for my daughter's purple plaid top

Friday: Wash and cut the fabric for the top

Saturday: Pattern shopping at JoAnn's. Buttrick patterns were 5 for $7.  (we were out of the house all day)

Sunday: Day off with a sick baby and out of town company.

Monday: Pinning and sewing the top.

Tuesday: Finish the top and a quick picture. She hates it by the way so I suppose that I have a new cleaning shirt. Amazingly enough, it does fit me.

Simplicity Girls Top

Wednesday: Next project up. Refashion time. One last picture of this wrap dress before I pick out all the seams and make it into a new dress for our trip.

Wish me luck for next week!
Happy Sewing!!!
