Welcome 2018, I think I am ready for you

It’s been quit a long time since I wrote anything here, but good news I am still alive.

My life goes up and down and sometimes blogging is not where I can use my energy, but this year is starting of a bit wierd and I happen to have quit som more time on my hands and I hope that I can take the time to actually blog some more.

I have been present on instagram, and if you want to seee my makes before they show up here I would follow me there on @saramadthat. Here are a montage of my most liked photos on instagram from 2017, thank for all the likes and feedback on instagram.


So let us start of the year with some blank sheets and plans for 2018. This year I am going to take part in the Sew my style challange and make the same pattern as a lot of other awesome makeres every month. You can read more about the challenge here. To also shrink my fabricstash and actually use the fabrics I got because I actually wanted them, I have decided to for all the patterns I can I will use fabrics in my stash. Looking forward to trying out more patterns and some I might not have choosen for my self.

I also decided to do the #2018makenine challenge by Rochelle from Home Row Fiber co. Mostely to have some plans, and also because I love the planning of sewing as much as the sewing sometime. Here are the makenine I choosen scroll down for the info and some thought on why I choose them.


The top row is first a Cleo from Tilly and the buttons. I have already made one of them in 2017 and it is one of my most worn makes for 2017. I want at least one more and I might make som small changes. I think you should always try to make a pattern 2 times to get some more out of the pattern.

The Style 2079 is a vintage pattern I bought right before christmas on etsy after seeing this post by Katie makes a dress. It looks like the perfact culottes dress and I want one for summer. I call the pattern vintage because it is from 1991 and I am born in 1992, so..

I have owend the perl shift dress from Grennbee patterns for a long time now and not made any. It is time. I think the simpel design makes it perfect for almost any fabric and also for someone who wears dresses all year round almost everyday it is a good everyday dress.

The second row is first the Blackwood cardigan from Helens Closet. A long cardigan to layer over dresses would be a good thing for my closet.

I have made the Moneta dress 4 times, but it is room for more. This easy knit dress with pocekts is perfect to wear every day.

The last one I put on here is the Lizzie skirt from Sew Over It. I think the skirt would look good in so many different fabrics, and I can make it lined and unlined for a great look.

On the bottom row I did put in three knitting patterns. I learnt how to knit this fall, and have so far kept to simple things like scarfs and headbands. But now I have moved on and I am planning to make som real knitted garments this year.

First is the Lolasweater from HipKnitShop, second the Dagnydress by Pikcels Oslo and the third is the Festivalscarf from HipKnitShop as well.

I hope that in a few months I have actually finnished some of this items and that I will have more time for sewing and actually take the time so sew some more this year! Happy new year everyone, lets hope it is a good one.
