Decisions Decisions...

Hello you, *waving hand in greeting gesture*
In the past day or two I have been in small dilemma. As part of my 2016 projects, I decided to make 2 complete outfits which I intend to wear. I have bought several sewing patterns both physical and digital. Truth be told I have only managed to use like 2 patterns out of my many, many, MANY patterns which I have bought in the past several years, with high intentions to make them... well that rarely happened once the hype of purchasing these patterns subsided... I know shame on me. Although I have my reasons... one is I am a very very chubby guy who is on a very long weight loss journey (which might be story I will share one day) and my thought process of cutting out these patterns of a my current size now, I know I will need to essentially re-cut all the pieces again which does annoy me a little. But you know what I'm not going to worry about that. I'm going to focus on the present for now and my present situation which is to use as much as my fabric stash as possible so I can hopefully acquire a new overlocker/serger towards the end of 2016!

So here are some photos of me trying to decide the patterns to use and the fabric to use for my garments.

 My fabric stash takes two of those brown baskets, both are literally overflowing with fabric that needs to be made into something!

Anyhow once I have decided later today I will have a big cutting session, get that out of the way, and then I can start sewing, it's going to be fun!

Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I will bring updates of this project.
Happy sewing!
