A five day weekend is coming up at Easter time. C is working so I will have time on my hands, and I think it will be a great opportunity to try and knock a few of my goals off! I am going to aim for the following three:
2. making a skirt
3. rejuvenating my footstool
4. making macarons
Hopefully I have enough time to organise the bits and pieces I will need for these three times, especially the fabric for reupholstering the footstool as I plan to purchase it online.
2. A skirt
My list of items to make a skirt includes:
- a pattern!
- Mum's sewing machine
- thread and accessories etc
- the expertise of C's mother for zips etc
I did a whole semester of sewing when I was in Year 8. I have actually made a dress at one point in my life but it has been a long while since! This will be a real challenge.
3. My footstool
My list of bits and pieces to rejuvenate the footstool includes:
- fabric to reupholster
- fabric for the underside
- Spray paint
- new cushion
I also think that I will need to deconstruct it to see how to put it back together.
There is not too much early preparation required for this, I should be able to buy the ingredients on the Easter weekend. My biggest is to determine what flavour I wish to try!
