50 Projects, More or Less, 2021

SO many great projects everyone!

I got ambitious and made all the little sacks for my gift mixes I will make closer to Christmas. A fat quarter made two of these. They are small so I’m hoping they fit the mixes. I’m counting these as three items because three fabrics.

Good use of fat quarters! Looks like you are preparing well in advance!

I finished a Summer cardigan just in time for Summer to end. At least there will be a few warm days left to wear it this season.

It is lovely! You can always wear it with a heavier shirt underneath…the color goes with so many things!

That’s a great idea! The yarn is unbleached cotton with variegated indigo thread…looks great with jeans.

T-shirts, jeans and your sweater would be so comfy and “fashionable”!

One more project done. Last Christmas my husband got me a paint by number. It feels like a bit of a cheat, but also it took me forever to finish so I’m counting it as a craft :smiley:

It feels like ages since I’ve been able to post a finished project! Just several bigger projects not getting finished lately, I guess. But this week I finished 5 projects! I think I’m up to 78? About that anyway. I hope I’ll have at least two more this week. :crossed_fingers:

I finished another big project. Woo! This is a cardigan for my younger daughter, using the same Harvest pattern that I used for my older daughter.

Nice! What interesting colors and the texture is quite nice as well!

Decided that for the next few months, I am going to be working on Christmas projects, home projects, and using up my small fabrics and scraps.

I made some hexie flowers and then made some into pincushions:

A little different design using two hexie flowers:

A small card case test project:

I am modifying it a bit because it is a little too big to hold the size cards I carry and I need to make sure the prints are going in the correct direction. The YouTube I watched didn’t pay attention to that, but it drives me crazy:

I would forever feel the anxiety of those donuts looking like they’re going to fall face down, lol.
I love your hexie projects. Can you believe I’ve never made any? Seems like such a great scrap project, what am I waiting for?

Hexies are so much fun!!! You should totally try it. It’s very relaxing and it’s an easy project to take with you on the go. I recognize (at least) 3 of those fabrics that you used @AIMR ! My top is done, I’m going to pick it up from the longarm place tomorrow. They basted it for me as it was too massive to do it myself.

Yes! I used a combo of hexies I got in swaps and also fabric squares that were exchanged!

@magpie, yes, those kind of things drive me a little insane on some projects! I keep a notebook with shortcuts, mistakes made, size changes, etc. Since many of the smaller items I am doing are test runs, it gives me a chance to improve! I am sure someone would like it and not even notice the falling donuts…lol…I realized that all of my prints from Spoonflower are directional…makes sense because of their printing process…and a lot of designers don’t do all over prints so I have to be extra careful…

Shall I send you some hexi forms? I have a punch!

I am as afraid to say yes as I am to say no :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
