    I have just decided to start sewing…so there is no favorite project yet. But I do know there is a sewing machine waiting for me under the tree, so hopefully there will be lots of favorite projects in the future:)

    favorite project was one of those heat packs that you put in the microwaves…. didn’t have a machine at the time so I sewed it by hand. Looked awesome. =)

    My favorite projects are usually coats. I have sewn many of them over the years, but one I really enjoy wearing is a swing coat style that is so comfortable with blue jeans.

    Hm… Hard to say, really, every project has its moments i guess. I like it best when something is finished just enough to try it on, so you can fantasize how it will end up looking on!

    My favorite project, while it may not be very elaborate, was when i made colorful pillow cases for my local hospitals cancer ward. While it wasn’t much, it really helped brighten up the plain hospital rooms.

    I just tried my first Burda pattern and its definitely my favorite project. What attracted me to the pattern was the interesting sleeve detail – the sleeves are only sewed onto the neckline and are loose and free from the bodice of the blouse. I’m so glad I sewed this project because it was so easy and it turned out so beautifully. Now my daughter has a new blouse to wear for Christmas Down Under!

    My favourite sewing project was a purse that I made a couple years ago. It turned out so nice although it took several months to complete as there was many details and I was only a beginner.
