I love reading and following challenges that people have givin themselves, like today I found about two challenges one was the founder of sew weekly sewing a new item every week for 2011 and she did it. Another is another fellow sewist who plans to sew with only Burda Magazine patterns for 2012. In the past I have seen someone refashion thrift finds everyday for a year and also I remember one where a woman wore only the clothes she made for an entire year and that included shoes and undergarments. These are just some. I too have given myself a challenge and that is to only use the same 12 patterns for one year, my main goal is to develop a good set of TnT patterns for myself. How about you are you giving yourself a challenge for 2012 or know of any interesting ones.

I just read about a challenge that was done in 2010, old i know, but it was interesting. It was called The Summer of No Pants. Many sewists only wore skirts and dresses that they made for the entire summer, with no pants, tights or shorts!! I might try that challenge.

I wanted to make a tailored suit for DH, including drafting the pattern. I have the basic pants so far.
