Designin’ December 2021 What’s up so far?

Hey! How’s your #designindecember project going? Almost finished?

I had a bit of a problem with mine. Had some seam ripper action and some re-cutting of a couple of pieces, but I think I’ve got it under control now. I’ll post it in great detail after it’s finished. It should be finished soon!

It better be… I only have until Friday night, midnight, PST!

I have found the “bestest” buttons! I bought them a few years ago and waited for the “perfect” project. I think I’ll use them on my #designindecember repurposed denim jacket! What do you think?

Just so you can have something to think about before the “voting post” is published in the beginning of January 2022, let me show you a few of the entries so far!

  1. WOW! Voting is going to be difficult.

    Such talented makers. It just shows you don’t have to spend large amounts of money to dress in designer garments. Good work and good luck everyone.

    1. There are more to come too! I just don’t have the finished photos. 🙂 I definitely agree – sewing gives you such freedom to make what you want with the materials you can find.

  2. Wow! The outfits look great. Each year I’m always amazed at the outfits that are created. Fantastic.

    1. There are more to come yet! This is just a sneak peek. 😄

  3. Love all the entries! I’m working on posting my Designin’ December tonight!

    1. There are a few more to come, not everyone has their photos or sewing done, like me! Lovely to have you join us again! 🤗
