Project Planning Tips

Tips for planning your next sewing project

Spending a bit of time planning your projects out can help to save you time and stress in the long run. Sometimes it can be hard to decide what to make next, so many ideas and so little time! Our tips below will help you focus and prepare for future craft projects.

  1. Think about how much time you have –  If you haven’t got a lot of time in the next few weeks then why not go for some quick makes so you get that finished project satisfaction, and it doesn’t feel like it’s going on forever. If you have lots of time why not push yourself to try something more complicated and build your skills. If short on time break your project down into small blocks so you know what you want to achieve in each sewing session.
  2. Make sure you have all the supplies you need – Gather the supplies together in advance, why not use our new garment planner notepads to help make sure you don’t miss any? Store them in one place, with your pattern so that when you are ready to start it’s all good to go. Don’t forget to pre-wash the fabrics.

  3. Skill building – Are there new skills you want to learn?
