2012 Sewing , Craft Projects On Sew Country Chick

It's been a very busy 2012 for me and the Sew Country Chick blog!
I have done a lot of sewing and crafting this year.

I decided to put together a post with photos of all of my projects from 2012.

I really put myself out there this past year and the result was a lot of activity for Sew Country Chick, which had been a relatively quiet blog in 2011.

It's been very busy but fun. Now the question is, can I keep this up in 2013? Who knows, but I am grateful for the things I learned this year. We may possibly be moving closer to LA, so obviously if that happens, I won't be making as many things. My husband is really tired of the commute to the city from our old farmhouse. We'll see!

Here is list of the projects I sewed:
38 dresses
9 jackets and vests
18 tops
1 bathing suit
5 skirts
8 trousers and shorts
9 bags

Maybe this year I will make more basics like pants. tops and skirts. I seem to love making dresses, although I have to admit I wear jeans most of the time. As I write this post I am working on a black stretch lycra dress for myself .......

I've listed links to the original posts below each photo collage. As you can imagine, this post has taken me several hours to write. I am very happy to have a log of  my productivity this year.

Participating in Project Run & Play as a contestant stretched me as a maker of children's clothes and made me try things out of my comfort zone.

I  had projects appear in Altered Couture Magazine, Parisienne Farmgirl Magazine, and Romantic Homes Magazine.
On the crafting front, My Top hat pumpkin won the most scariest pumpkin award sponsored by the Plaid Company.

  1. Gosh Justine, what an excellent making year you've had! I admire you so much for being this creative and productive, when you have children to look after too! Everything you've made looks perfect - I think my absolute favourites of yours (though hard to pick) are your Hazels, your sailor pants and your orange maxi dress. Can't wait to see what 2013 brings for you ;o)

  2. What an amazing round up. You were busy in 2012! You are also so adorable. :)

  3. Wow, you had such an incredible year! You should be SO proud.......what an amazing collection. Amazing.

  4. Holy moly! That was A LOT of sewing!! So so many gorgeous pieces!!! I can't wait to see what you do in 2013!!

  5. So many and so lovely:) Happy New year Justine

  6. Wow! That is a lot of sewing, and I thought I made a lot. LOL I told someone a couple of months ago that my goal is to one day be able to make everything I wear. She asked, "why would you want to do that?" :) It's so satisfying and rewarding. I got the pattern drafting book you had on your sew along; it was one of my Christmas presents. I can't wait to start sewing from it. I think the hardest part will be getting accurate measurements of myself, something I'll have to have my husband help me with!

  7. Wow, what an amazing collection! Looking forward to see what you whip up next year!

  8. Justine you amazing me!! Wonder Woman!

  9. Wow ! That's a huge collection
    I didn't do much sewing at 2012, I collected many sewing books though. hope I can follow your step :)
    Happy new year!

  10. Holy Cow! Thank you for reminding me of some of my favourite things you've made this year (especially your La Vie en Rose outfits, which I still plan to try). Happy New Year.
