Jars ‘O Inspiration

There is about a 95-100% chance that i’ll be moving in the next few months and with this being the case I am trying to reduce my amassed stash of unfinished projects.

Its super hard to pick one thing out of an anthill-esque mound so I’m letting the fate of the jars ‘o inspiration decide for me – more to come on that one.

The original top was a dollar day find that was baggy and weird shaped but I am a sucker for all things gingham! I’m working this year on making more versatile pieces and I think this falls right in – perfect paired with jeans and a belt or with a high waisted skirt!

The fix was pretty easy – just cut off the long sleeves, take in the sides, then make bias strips out of the sleeves, and bind the armholes! Easy, peasy, and done!

In order to pick my projects I wrote everything out on sticky notes and separated them into corresponding jars. So before any new projects can be started I have to complete a projects out of each of the jars.

  1. What a great idea! I love the jars for picking new projects – I definitely am going to have to do this – maybe a jar for self projects and one for others? Also… cute top!

    What a brilliant idea! I also have several UFO’s that I need to finish…one of these days…if I ever stop having ideas of NEW things to make :)

  5. The UFO and refashion jars are such a wonderful idea! I have the same “problem” – too many projects and moving soon…will definitely try this idea! Thanks for sharing!

    what a brilliant idea! I’m drowning in UFOs and refashions but the excitement of starting new always wins out for me. I did clear out a few recently being realistic because I’m hoping we’ll sell our house and move this year too
