50 Projects, More or Less, 2021

Nice list…I keep adding to mine but then I start something else not on the list…it will be interesting to see what I actually do…I still have about 20 things from 2020…so either they are “must do’s” that I am avoiding, or they need to leave my list…there is a reason they aren’t done, lol

I’m starting 2021 off right! I just posted no sew re-upholstered ottoman storage footstool as my first project of the year to my post!

2020 was so non-crafty for me. Hopefully I have 2021 crafty mojo

I think this might be the year I re-do my old sewing machine chair…the last time I recovered it was probably ten years ago…it is looking a bit tired and dated…but it has piping on it and I remember what a pain it was to staple all of that on and then the fabric as well…but, I did get an automatic electric stapler…it is almost a weapon! lol

I seem to begin a list and then lurk for the rest of the year, so perhaps I shouldn’t bother with the list, and just go straight to the lurking? Hm…

Some people just aren’t list people! You can just keep track as you get your projects done…I find that I make more stuff off my list than on it! lol

I am totally a list person, but mostly lists of things I haven’t done yet rather than things I’ve finished with! (also, going back to add stuff was another layer of too much for my ADD to bother with…)

Maybe I should just try to add numbers to things & post them as I go along.

That is mostly how I participate! It’s a great memory aid; when I try to just remember what I made in the past [unit of time longer than a week or two] I always forget most of it. It’s so fun and satisfying to look back at my list here! In 2020, I just put a number and a pic for the most part and I gotta say that I love to scroll that post!

Me too. It’s fun to have a place to have all the completed projects in one spot and look back at all that was accomplished!

@thanate, I’m also too ADD to actually create a list and work from it all year long. I posted a list, but I’m pretty sure it will look completely different at the end of the year. I have also never joined a 50 projects group before because it felt like too much pressure and gave me anxiety. This year I have decided to push past my anxiety and do my best. I will be content if I finish 10 or 50. The fellowship of this group is the most important thing. :heart:

I’m in as always. I have a few things I need to do this year.

I signed up last year and then have done hardly a crafty thing at all (except masks - plenty of masks). However, I just started organizing my craft closet and found a billion WIPs and previously-planned items so I am going to give this another shot. I’ve been missing craftiness!

Here’s some potential projects, most have been planned or in the works for a very long time. Despite the length of the list (and the name of the craftalong), my actual goal is more like a project a month. So I shall see how I do in cutting it down.

  • WIP: Alpine fabric big purse for self
  • WIP: Quirky grunge tote bag
  • WIP: Quirky Flash Gordon tote bag
  • WIP: Quirky Batman tote bag
  • WIP: Quirky Western purse
  • Planned: Skirt for self from West African fabric
  • Planned: Pajama pants for self from anchors fabric
  • Page(s) of travel scrapbook
  • Page (s) of undergrad scrapbook
  • Create cover for spice rack (sewn?)
  • Build Little Free Library
  • Build raised garden beds
  • Fingerprint embroidery
  • Constellation embroidery
  • My city themed embroidery
  • “Head with ideas” embroidery
  • Tea cozy (with or without irony)
  • Try out crochet
  • Try out arm knitting
  • Try making something miniature
  • Masks, but the ones with the seam down the middle

I have been a good girl and worked from my stash quite a bit lately. I’m rewarding myself with this fabric. I just ordered it and plan to make myself a half apron and a couple masks. I can hardly wait! :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:
