Getting Ready for Selfish Sewing Week

Are you joining in with Selfish Sewing Week? I am and I've got some new stuff to share with you later on in the week. If you are follow me on facebook or instagram you may have already had a sneak peek! I love the idea of Selfish Sewing Week because I always put my own sewing projects to the back of the list. I'd say 95% of what I make is destined for other people so it's fun to think about what I would really like for myself.

To kick off the week, I thought I'd share some selfish sewing projects I've already done - who knows, they might be projects that are just what YOU are looking for! All the details and links to patterns / tutorials are in the posts I've linked to.

Colette Sorbetto top - the weather has warmed up and I'm starting to get some wear from this top that I made a few months ago. 

Open wide zipper pouch. Zipper pouches are handy for EVERYTHING. I tend to make them for other people but this one I loved so I kept it for myself. It currently holds a stack of fabric that is waiting to be fussy cut for patchwork.

My Cerisy skirt. Ahhh the yoga waistband. The perfect garment to wear to an indulgent lunch or dinner ;)

Perhaps something like a Sewing Machine Cover has been on your to-do list for ages? Well, this is the week to get it done!

I've noticed lots of people are planning to do some bag making this week. Here is my Tohoku Tote that I made a couple of years ago but it still remains a favourite! I just love that Amy Butler Daisy Chain fabric..

Selfish Sewing Week is the brainchild of my blogging buddies Jill and Rachael. You can check out more details and grab buttons here.

Are you going to take part? What projects do you have on your to-do list?


  1. I'm not sure if I am going to get much sewing done this week but I am going to try for at least one item off this list:

    I have a super busy with birthdays, Alt for Everyone starting late Thursday night and finishing early Sunday morning and my MIL arriving on Sunday night. She is supposed to be sleeping in my sewing room so I need to make that as inhabitable as possible :P

  2. Nice to think lots of us are sitting at the machine for ourselves this week!

  3. Can't wait to see what you make Ros. Its first week of school holidays here and I'm looking forward to getting some serious decluttering and organising done. I've been doing it for the last 2 days while the kids were with their Dad and am making good progress. If I stop now, it'll never get done. Maybe next time, I'll join in.

  4. I'll try and see if I can... a lot of things to be done this next week :) I'd love to finish a blouse I'm working on right now, and then try out an indie pattern - the Belladone dress by Deer & Doe - fabric and notions already bought and pre-washed. need to trace the pattern though. :)

  5. I am sewing for the markets like crazy, but I am planning to make at least one thing for myself this week :) Fingers crossed :)

  6. I probably said it before, but I love your sorbetto top!
    Can you do some selfish sewing for me? Haha x
