Hello, fellow sewist!
Let me run you through a scenario.
You’re scrolling your social media feed or your favourite sewing blogs (like this one), minding your business, when you come across a magical looking fabric or pattern that you suddenly need. You go back and forth for a short time and you finally buy it. You wait for the other pieces of the puzzle to fall into place until you’re finally ready to sew up something glorious. Then, one of several things happens:
- You forget what pattern you originally wanted to make with what material
- You’re a little sketchy on all the details you wanted to include in your project
- Maybe something else seems like a better idea now
And that pattern or fabric ends up in your stash. It’s a lovely stash, of course, but the goal of both things is to eventually make something using them. 😀
This actually happens to me a lot. I’m probably more of a pattern hoarder than a fabric one, but it’s close. I see it, I want it, I buy it (or if I’m lucky, it’s a free pattern). Thennnnnn… sometimes I make it. Or sometimes a year later I’ll find it and wonder what plan I had for it, if any, with the fabric I currently have. This problem can also exist in reverse, ordering all the pretty fabrics and not remembering what you had in mind when you did by the time it arrives.
I wanted to keep this under control, so I designed this cute little printable sewing planner worksheet. It’s been so helpful to keep a bunch of my ideas in the same place for easy reference.
It’s simple, it’s sweet, and it’s great for jotting down all the little details that first pop into your head when inspiration hits. Print a bunch, hole punch and stick them in a binder or keep them in a folder and embrace a teensy bit more organization in your sewing life.
If you’re someone like me who mostly buys small amounts of fabric at once, you can even write up several of these planner worksheets for one length of fabric to compare ideas and help decide on your final project! (Maybe save those other ideas for a fabric they’d be even better suited for later on, too!)
Want it? Just add your email in the green form below and then check your inbox. (Not there? check spam/junk filters and mark as ‘not junk’ if you find it there). Print as many as you like for your future sewing projects!
