I'm still working on figuring out the best schedule for the weekly goal blog posts. Eventually I'll get it sorted out! Today let's try doing all 3 posts on the same day and see how that goes. I'll link the posts so it is easy to move between them and hopefully we can all keep this straight.
So let's talk about this week and what everyone plans to sew.
I have 2 things to accomplish this week. You can read more about them below, if you are interested in hearing what I'm up to (or supposed to be up to...). What is on your sewing agenda this week? Leave a comment here so we can see what you plan to get done--or at least plan to make an effort to get done.
Now, back to the other parts of this weekly goal experiment.

My Goals for the Week
1. Make a second version of this phone pouch:
The basic idea will stay the same, but I want to try to make it slightly narrower.
2. Sew the second version of this notebook/ipad pouch:
This needs to be just a little larger overall. The main pocket also needs to be taller. This is where it gets tricky with pdf patterns though--I try to avoid taping more than two pieces together, and this particular piece is pushing the paper limits already.
The original intention was to use this pouch for the extra large Moleskine Cahier journal, which has become my favorite notebook for quilt design notes/diagrams. I wanted to be able to carry a variety of pens/pencils with the notebook, so there is a pocket for pens inside the front pocket.
After making this first one, I realized it was also going to fit an ipad if I made it just a bit bigger.
Alright, enough about me--what are you up to this week???
