A few years ago, I created a printable Project Planner for The Organization Toolbox; and pretty much ever since, I’ve wanted to adapt it specially for sewing projects. Not only do I think it can be really helpful to collect your thoughts, plans, patterns and supplies before getting started on a sewing project, but I’ve definitely been guilty of making trips to and from the fabric store, only to arrive home without everything I need. The printables in this mini planner are designed to help you (and me!) keep track of fabric, notions, to-dos, pattern details and more so we can more easily and more efficiently sew up something awesome!
Like all my other printables, the Sewing Project Planner is a printable pdf that can be viewed on pretty much any device!
This kit features some additional goodies which I’ll show you in a bit, but the highlight of this printable kit is the 8 sewing project planning worksheets all designed in bright and happy colors and my signature clean yet fun style!
There are two planner “styles” included in this Sewing Project Planner. The first is a single-page planner that features space to notate your project, pattern, helpful resources and tutorials, supplies needed and notes. This single-page version is ideal for quick projects that don’t require a ton of supplies, planning, or steps.
However, for larger or more-complex projects, I’ve also included a 5-page planner.
The 5-page planner features much of the same information as the 1-page version, just a lot more spread out. Across all 5 pages, there is ample room for a detailed shopping list, inspiration and notes, a checklist-style To Do List, as well as a fabric swatch log. And did I mention these pages are fully editable? Yep! That means if you’d rather type in your notes, thoughts and plans instead of write them, you can do that!
The Fabric Swatch log is one of my favorite things I’ve created in a while! Whether you’re collecting/matching fabrics for a single sewing project or just trying to keep track of fabrics you’re using in a room makeover or have in your stash, this single-page worksheet (that can be printed in multiples as necessary) helps you log all the important details for any fabric. This printable really comes in handy if you’re trying to track down more of a certain fabric if you happen to run out mid project (or when blog readers email you asking for the name/source of a random fabric they see on your blog!!!)
This kit also includes some basic graph-style paper in two sizes that you can certainly use for anything you need. When trying to determine how much fabric I need for certain projects or when figuring out how best to layout pattern pieces onto the fabric I have, I always sketch it out on paper. Using graph paper ensures my sketches are a little more accurate!
At the end of this printable kit, I’ve included a few resources that are especially great for new sewers. I’ve linked up 12 of my favorite quick-and-easy sewing projects…
…as well as the supplies and resources I rely on most when sitting down to sew!
The kit contains clickable links so you can easily access all these tutorials and products directly from the printable file itself. Use the printable worksheets in conjunction with my favorite projects to get creating something right away!
So, I hope you are excited to get your hands on this Sewing Project Planner! Here’s how!
