A wonderful initiative started by Rochelle of, I will be taking part in #2017MAKENINE, a challenge to the sewing community to make more and wear more of what they love. Keep up with my progress on social media and here on the blog!

This is the template I made and use to plan my own sewing projects, divided into seasons and with 6 projects for the year. It gives me a quick look at what I need to prep for the months ahead. You can write or draw your projects directly in the boxes or use a small sticky note for those ideas that aren't permanent yet.

Feel free to print you for yourself.

Here are a list of free downloadable PDF sewing patterns that you can try to get you started with your sewing journey. I've filtered through the vast list on the web and narrowed down to the ones that I think are both stylish and functional. Links will take you to the corresponding website. Good luck!
