Accumulating the supplies I need to begin my Christmas sewing requires a bit of planning. The first part of the plan is to figure out my To Do List.
Since I have already made up the people who will be getting Christmas gifts and entered them into my Christmas Notebook, now I am finalizing who gets what.
Once I have that decided, I move on to what it will take in supplies to make the items that I am giving.
I generally sew in bunches, 15 table runners, 30 Christmas Stockings, 45 pillowcases. This simplifies buying the materials, for the most part.
Although the pillowcases will be individually designed, they will all take the same amount of fabric and some of the same fabrics can be used for different people.
Therefore the biggest question is how many of what am I making. And what are the requirements for each and the total?
