2018 in Review

2018 was definitely the year of the bra in my crafting life. I made 12 (!!!) bras, so roughly one bra per month. I started on my first bra ever in January:


By December, I had upped my skills to make this wonderfully fancy velvet underwire bra:


I feel pretty good about my bra-making skills and I look forward to making more lingerie in 2019. I already have one more Harriet bra almost complete.

I also sewed a few non-bras in 2018, including a toddler bucket hat2 Astoria sweaters, a Jenna skirt, and a Tacara top. My favorite of these is the Jenna skirt, which I am wearing a lot right now.


On the knitting front, I finished an Owl sweater for the toddler and made a pair of fun fingerless mitts from yarn I bought at this year's Wisconsin Sheep & Wool festival. Neither project made it onto the blog until now because that's just the type of year it was.



My biggest work-in-progress was finished in October:


This little lady is going to mean an interesting 2019. I'm hoping to find time to sneak away and craft this year, if only to finish that bra and a sewing project I made the husband for Christmas that just needs buttons and button holes. I'll keep you posted on any finished objects. Happy New Year!
