It is that time of the year again….. SWAP.
First let me say sewing has been happening here at sewTreefrog but I with all the extras 2020 has given us, I haven’t been blogging much. I’ve been posting most of my makes on IG, so please checkout my feed. Most recently I’ve been working through a cycling capsule. (One of the good things that has come out of two lockdowns is that I’ve got back into regular cycling again and I’m loving it)
Over at Artisans Square the annual SWAP (sewing with a plan) is getting underway. I’ve volunteered to be co-ordinator this year. Please join us!
I love the planning phase. So many possibilities! Ahh, sew little time 😦
I’m desperately short of pants. I need new jeans – straight leg + slim leg versions. Also some lightweight summer pants – drawstring style in linen or rayon. Some new hiking pants and a shirt or two. I also need a black T. Boardshorts. And then there is the kayaking cag and the Goretex jacket that’s been on my list since I don’t know when! From my stash, a floral rayon and some gorgeous embroidered voiles.
Option 1 : Everyday SWAP
To come up with this plan, I’ve based it loosely on the 2016 Algebra SWAP. The main structure is as follows:
- 1 “3 pack” of Color(s) A (3 garments) – This will be blues – denim + the floral rayon
- 1 “3 pack” of Color(s) B (3 garments) – This will be naturals – embroidered voile, linen pants and a stripe T
- 1 “Combo Pack” of Colors A & B (2 garments) – An eyelet voile and cotton sateen
- 1 “3 pack” of Wild Cards – Hiking group with a linen shirt, drawstring pants & more technical pair of hiking pants
Option 2 : Patagucci SWAP
Now wouldn’t this be fun?
