Having started on my winter sweater project for my Sasha girls and boys, has got me thinking about clothes and making them versus buying them and I have decided to make a pledge to only make my Sasha family their clothes for the next year, not purchase anything. With one exception...if I manage to save up enough money to go to the Sasha Festival, then I will allow myself some spending money there. Although if it is anything like the one this year I only had a budget of £25 to spend so didn't buy any clothes there anyway! I am going to try and design a banner/photo tomorrow to display this pledge and if anyone wants to join in they are welcome to.
My pledge will be something like this;
"A Sasha/Gregor Challenge of the Utmost Kind"
I pledge to not purchase any Sasha or Gregor clothing for a year from 1st December 2012. Instead I plan to sew and knit their clothing only, making use of existing fabrics, yarns, and upcycling wherever possible.
I finally managed to get to my quilting group today after being unable to attend for several weeks. I had cut out three Christmas dresses yesterday and managed to get them all sewn up today, but by the time I got home it was too dark to photograph them, so will do that tomorrow. I have some other items that I am hoping to finish tomorrow.
As I have no new photographs to show, I will revisit a couple of older photos...
