2020 Sewing Goals

What are you sewing goals for this year? I had a look through my blog last year and came up with a few sewing goals of my own.

1. Handmade Etsy Markets

I started my very own handmade Etsy store last year called Honey Love Handmade. It worked out well being encouraged by my best friend and beauty blogger Katie’s Cosmopolitan. This year I want to make a few more different types of products and be able to get to the markets. Even if I don’t sell everything immediately it’s been such a great experience and I’m making small sales here and there which I really didn’t expect. I’m also chatting to lots of kind, supportive beauty bloggers on my Honey Love Handmade Instagram.

2 Make a few girly dresses

Last year I found my clothing style changed and I’m totally obsessed with long, flowing, girly dresses. I bought a few patterns last year that I would love to test out and see if they fit. Here are a few of my test and try patterns… let’s see if I can get around to making them!

3 Charity Donations

It’s been a super upsetting start to the new year with the tragic bush fires which are decimating the Australian wildlife population. I’m going to try and donate once a month to a charity in need to help out our animals. Why only animals you ask? Well, my mum is now retired so she follows the Echidna Sewalong, which finds a new charity each month so between us we are covering a number of worthy causes.

4 Test out more of my sewing patterns

I’m not in a rush to make a lot of clothing this year but one aim would be to test out a few more of my sewing patterns that I have in my stash and make them well. If I can aim to find and make one perfect fit style of clothing in a skirt, shirt, dress and shorts I will be super happy. I might even have a clean out and get rid of those patterns that don’t fit my body shape. That might even leave some room for some of those adorable Butterick patterns coming out!

That’s probably a good start considering I’ve already got so much planned for this year including starting a new job in January! Bring on 2020!

What’s your top 4 sewing goals for this year?
