Crafty Bucket List

I don’t know about you but I have a never ending list of things that I want to make.  Some times I buy the pattern/ book and supplies right away and stash them in my sewing room.  Other times I just see the pattern somewhere and tell myself that I am going to remember where it is so I can make it, but I never do.

I have an account on Ravelry where I keep up with some of the patterns I find on there, and I have a crafty journal where I keep up with all the details of the projects that I have in progress.  But there isn’t really a place to keep track of all the different projects that I want to do … so I am making this page to help me keep track.  When I find something that just needs to get made I will list the details here, then as I buy the supplies, or start the project I will make blog posts about them and check them off the list.


  • Mermaid’s Birthday Sweater:  every year for my daugther’s birthday I make her a sweater.  I need to decide on a pattern because November is almost here.  Trouble is I am having a hard time finding one for a 4 year old, seems like they go from 18 months to pre-teens.
    • Silver Birch Tunic – Crochet At Play < DONE!
    • Wolf – Crochet At Play < In Progress
  • I want a cape for myself.  **After looking I decided to design my own!  Its a pain in the butt.  The next time someone wants to charge you for a pattern that took more than an hour to write – pay them.  Pay them what ever they ask for and then give them a gift of chocolate to make up for all the frogging they had to do to create that pattern for you! < In progress the St Andrew Cape
  • Mermaid’s fairy wings > I have the thread and the wire, a book somewhere – just need to find all of it in the craft dungeon and then make them.
  • Booties – I bought a kit on Craftsy that I keep looking at but never starting.
  • Mittens for myself, just need to decide on the pattern.  Maybe a pair that open so I can use my fingers on the phone.
  • Christmas Gift for BFF – black mittens.   She is lucky I like her – black mittens.
  • Skirt < I found a great pattern and bought the fabric
  • Jean Capris < Bought the pattern and fabric, need to get stitchin.
  • Tee shirt quilt for Hubby
  • Baby clothes quilt for Amelia
  • Baby Blanket for Wally’s Baby < First thing Hubby has ever asked me to make – so it must happen.  < DONE
  • Teacher Christmas Gifts:  I need 3 things for Mermaid’s teachers at school.  She has a teacher, a teacher assistant, and an assistant.  I hate confrontation so they are all getting something about the same level of effort.  Or is that to crazy?
