50 or more Projects Craftalong -2023

This Craftalong is intended to provide an area to keep track of and plan for your projects in 2023. Whether you do one project or 200 or anything in between, you are being creative!

You can make a list or you can just post as you finish each project. Do it the way that it works for you. Be sure to bookmark your post so you can get back to it to add your completed projects!

You can also post a link to any separate topics you create to give more details or pictures. We all love to see pictures and hear about your process!



Half a year will be gone at the end of June!

What are your plans for the last six months? Maybe you can get some projects done ahead of schedule and avoid the holiday/seasonal rush!

Make some Halloween, Fall, Christmas/Winter projects and post early!

Gift giving can be year round: make some gifts for someone else

Treat yourself to something you have admired or always wanted to make

The warmer weather means brighter colors: go bold or go home! Make something colorful and bright!

I have been crafting like crazy all through last year. I hope to continue to be productive, I just need to get active on here again. No list for me as I have way too many things I’m doing, lol. I’ll add as I complete something!


Squatter is an Australian board game that is a Monopoly-type game where you own sheep stations and have to buy and trade your animals.

My dad grew up playing Monopoly, my mum grew up playing Squatter.


Claiming my spot! I’m hoping I can get to 50 this year, but 2023 hasn’t gotten off to the most auspicious start. Apologies in advance to anyone who finds dolls to be creepy. Avert your eyes!

  1. 2022 Book Journal Wrap-Up

  2. Minifee unisex sweater

  3. January PKF Dresses

  4. January Dresses - other sizes

  5. February PKF Dresses


That is definitely not me! I am just amazed at the variety of little dresses you make…I had no idea there were so many tiny prints, and now I am obsessed with them. To prevent me from buying them without any purpose, I always looked forward to seeing your fabrics! lol

I think I’ll play this year. I don’t know if I’ll make 50 (too many big projects on my to-do/WIP list), but I do love seeing everyone’s tallies go up throughout the year.

More shopping totes…
Fabric collection
More to come

Finished so far:




embossed brocade…sounds so lovely…

I have several pieces of “good” fabric that I was gifted when I was in Japan…never really had the nerve to cut into them…2023 is now or never…one is silk denim with tiny real rhinestones


Ok I’m in. It’s been a while since I felt motivated to track my crafts for the year, but I kind of miss being able to look back at what I accomplished for a given year. I don’t have a goal number to complete.

I print my list, pictures and all, each year and have them filed in a notebook as well as in a digital file.

It is fun to look back and remember what I made and for whom, etc. Sometimes, it is odd because I have no memory of HOW I made something, which means, I was probably in my zone…
