February Project Wish List

Do you have lists?
Not just lists of the mounds of things you SHOULD be doing. But lists of things you would LIKE to do?
I don’t, but I think tonight is a good night to create a list.
I spend my relax/quiet/hiding/calm-down time reading blogs, and collecting tutorials on things I REALLY want to do. One of the reasons I wanted to start this blog was to post not only projects completed, but projects I would like to do.
Now thanks to everyone in bloggyland I  have TON of projects to tackle, so where do I start?
With a MAGICAL list.
This list isn’t going to be EXACT but a rough estimate of what I would like to accomplish by the end of February (keeping it to a month of projects, not adding a list for the year, that just calls for failure).
1. Thee Clutch Purse: I have been eyeing this tutorial here at Noodle Head for awhile. See the gathers and the zipper? I have the URGE to accomplish those things!!

            2 . Tee-Shirt Dress Reconstruction: Using this tutorial from Threadbangers, I plan on making a some semi classy with a cute table cloth I found at Goodwill, and with an old shirt I WAS going to donate to GW.

3.     3. The Circle Skirt: Check out this AWESOME tutorial from Dana over at MADE, I feel as though I NEED it, but have yet to score the perfect fabric during my hunts to GW.

4.   4.   Elastic Waist Skirt: I know one to many skirts, but I have only one that fits at the moment, and I think people might start to notice at church. Following this tutorial from Freshly Picked, I have the PERFECT material I found last week from GW, its total flower power, but I think its coming back into style.

5.    5.  Amy Butler Blossom Handbag: Check out this FREE Amy Butler tutorial over at Sew Mama Sew. I think I may have a sewing buddy on this one: DENICE *cough cough. Though it says advanced I think 2 brains can push through and make this darling purse. I can already imagine finishing it, taking to bed with me, tucking it in, kicking out my husband, then dreaming about tackling a weekend bag …. Aww, I am daydreaming.

6.     6. Reupholster my Goowill High Back Winged Chair: This project was actually supposed to get done this weekend, but with the hubby’s birthday and returning from a trip it was pushing it. But both DENICE and I will be tackling this upholstering job. I been reading this tutorial by Molly over at the Creative Maven. Using her WISDOM, this will be completely hopefully sooner (like within the next 2 weeks) then later.

So those are what I would like to get done. Anything extra is just sprinkles on the cupcake.
But though those things aren’t completed, I have some AWESOME things I have tackled in the past 10 days my hubby has been gone.
Stay tuned!

Those look like some fabulous projects to try! Good luck with checking this off the list! Can't wait to see the chair when you are done! Thanks for linking up!

It's a great list- nearly all of them are already on or checked off my own! ;) Just one suggestion on the Amy Butler bag, make sure it prints off to scale (It didn't on mine and it means the bottom piece is too long and the magnetic snaps won't line up). I'm going to try to re-print it and see if there's anything I can fix to make it print correctly- I'm sure there's something I missed! :) Good luck- can't wait to see how it all comes out!
