How you’re using the planner
My living room is covered in craft supplies right now. My tiny sewing table is full of fabric, half-used spools of thread, and a giant pile of patterns. Since it’s almost Halloween, my in-progress costume is taking over the couch and all the bookshelves. I am in desperate need of organization, and I’ve found some answers by seeing and reading what all of you are doing with your planners so far!
I’m rounding up the official release of The Colette Sewing Planner with some of your ideas.
Erin’s cat-approved planner
“To be honest, I never organized before the planner. Is that crazy? When I needed fabric I would just bring the pattern envelope with me to the store for whatever I felt like making at that moment and then buy the required fabric and notions. At times I will get wild and buy fabric just because, with no purpose in mind.”
Erin planned out her polka dot Rumi tank in her planner, with a stamp of approval from her helpful kitty assistant, LeBron!
A sewing planner, for knitting!
Beth’s Organized Buttons
The organizational abilities of Beth from Sew DIY never cease to amaze me. She makes awesome patterns and runs an engaging blog to share her finished makes and helpful tutorials. While she usually organizes in Evernote on the computer, she gave her planner a spin for the visualization, and to keep as a “physical archive” of finished projects.
Lauren works at Stonemountain & Daughter Fabrics, so she probably experiences more fabric temptations than any of us. She needs to find time to reflect on the projects she’s made so she can remind herself of all her great skills and accomplishments, like sewing 4 pairs of jeans.
