March Challenge

cooltext156747814765691Each month I am setting myself a challenge, something to sew within the month, sometimes it’s a UFO (I’ve a few of those) or something I’ve been procrastinating about for ages, or just something I’ve never sewn before which I know will push me. My monthly challenges are basically me giving myself a kick and saying Come on, get on with it, you can do this!!!

This months challenge is definitely new sewing ground for me and I’ve probably been procrastinating about them for a while, trying to pluck up the courage…Ginger Jeans!

Ginger-Skinny-Jeans-Pattern-Closet-Case-Files-detail-front_grandeI’ve been seeing them on blogs for a while now and thought oooh, I quite fancy having a go at those. I bought the pattern (and the e-book) a few months back, I ordered two lengths of denim a couple of months back, I’ve even got the zips, buttons and top-stitching thread…and it’s all just sitting there!

Well this month I’m going to do it, I’m going to make myself a pair of jeans!

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
