    i just started sewing this year (i love it!), but i’ve made 2 floor pillows, 2 couch pillows, an ottoman cover, 2 dresses, a bow tie, a vest, a book cover & curtains… i think that’s it, so 11 completed sewing projects. i have several christmas projects in the works, so by the end of the year, that number will probably double.

    Well, I’ve finished 5 dresses and two small projects so far this year, and I’m hoping to finish two more dresses for xmas presents. So, hopefully that will be 9 projects this year! (My first year sewing)

    Next year… maybe more! :)

    I’m new to sewing so I try to do a project every couple of months so I would say about 5 a year because I like to experiment with my own patterns to create something new. I like to also alter my clothes a lot and I do about 1 piece a month! I wish I was more creative and expert on the sewing machine to do more!!!

    Well currently I have 12 projects uploaded on this website. I think I finished most of those this year. This is the first year I’ve really really been into sewing. I’ve also done some odds and ends that I haven’t uploaded, so I’d say this year I finished about 20. I hope to expand on that total as time progresses!

    I’d guess about 25? I usually do one huge gift project each year, plus a dozen smaller ones like tote bags, hats and such. Then I’ll create at least four full outfits for myself – basically an additional 6 items each season. I really wish I had the time to do more!

    I’m going to estimate 1 to 2 projects per month is a good average. Some projects are more detailed than others. I am a member of the American Sewing Guild and our chapter is planning a sewing retreat for February, so I will be preparing as many project as I can 2 days of sewing with friends. I’ve still got the channel jacket project from the Threads November 2005 on my sewing to do list. Would love the DVD set!!

    I finish a lot of mending and altering projects; a lot more than I’d like to be doing, seeing as I find little pleasure in these projects. I probably mend or alter at least once per week (50 projects.) Sewing projects probably total only 10 per year. :( Certainly would like to sew fun things a lot more!

    It depends! If you count a project as one item them I’m looking at about 40 for this coming year – I have promised to help a friend make costumes for her dance studio – shame I have real work as well!!
