Selfish Sewing Week

Today marks the start of Selfish Sewing Week{September 23-29} sponsored by imagine gnats and Made with Moxie. I was super excited about this because I need some "me" sewing time. That means anything that is a gift or meant for someone other than myself will be put on the back burner. I sew all the time, but it has been a little while since I have made something 100% for me, so I am excited to focus on myself a bit :)

Here is my small list of goals:
  • Pair of sleeping shorts for my upcoming vacation. I have some amazing voile that I want to use and an Amy Butler pj pants pattern.
  • A Mug Rug for my desk. 
  • My Marcelle Medallion quilt.
  • Maybe a new dress if I have the time. I have 3.75 yards of gorgeous Liberty of London fabric that I have been dying to sew into something just for me :) 
We shall see how much I actually get done :) Are you planning some #selfishsewing this week? If so, join the flickr group, and there's even a Pinterest page.


  1. I'm so jealous you can just make all of that stuff! If i need any of it I have to buy it lol Post a picture of your sleep shorts when you are done!

  2. I wish I could sew! I have a really nice sewing machine that I was given for my wedding but haven't had the courage or time to figure out how to use it!

  3. i love this idea! sometimes it's hard to carve out time to spoil yourself! good luck on your projects!
