Sewing Planner – You’re Sew On It
If you have any of the sewing planners I have created – either the printable sewing year planner, the seasonal sewing planners or the ready printed planners from Amazon – do check out the video below to see just how it was designed to be used as a planner that fits into YOUR life! It isn’t your typical sewing planner – I designed and created it so that sewing and pattern making projects are planned around your personal life, and you don’t feel like you’re struggling to make time for yourself.
It uses a ‘sprint system’ which is used for project management, and this video will explain how to implement it so that it makes sense. And if for some reason, you have a couple weeks that you can’t do anything – that’s totally cool too!
This planner is about putting a system in place that works for you so that you can keep moving forward with your sewing projects! 🙂
Drop any questions in the comments below – and thanks for watching! 🙂
I mentioned several versions of the sewing planner in the video and the links to those are further down, in case you need to grab your copy! I’ve also linked the sewing patterns you see in the video under ‘inspiration’ pages in the video! 🙂
*One final thing. Items on this page may be affiliate links.

Seasonal Sewing Planners
Some of my fashion creation peeps have asked about a seasonal sewing planner, so that they can use it to plan out their seasonal wardrobes! I thought it was a brilliant idea, so have now created seasonal planners that cover just 13 weeks of the year.
I then went a step further and created them in two versions: one for people in the Northern Hemisphere who have summer during June, July and August and the second versions are for my Southern Hemisphere peeps, who’s summer would be January, February and March.
Please do make sure you buy the right version for where you’re living, as they are dated!
Printable Seasonal Sewing Planners
You may have already noticed on the right hand sidebar the sewing planners? Those are my digital versions. The top is Northern Hemisphere and the bottom is for Southern Hemisphere peeps.
Northern Hemisphere Fall / Autumn Sewing Planner
Southern Hemisphere Spring Sewing Planner
When you buy a particular printable seasonal planner, you get lifetime updates for that planner. So, next year when I Upload the 2019 version, it’ll be sitting in your account ready to download and print.
There are 72 pages to print (though you may not want so many project pages as I need?) and you’ll want to check the box in your print settings that says ‘scale to fit’!
Physical Seasonal Sewing Planners
Now, being that not everyone has access to a printer – I didn’t for the first four months here in Anglesey! – I also created small 6×9 inch colour versions for Amazon. Again, as there are four per year and two hemispheres, make sure you’re ordering the right one!
These do cost more I’m afraid – colour printing isn’t cheap – but they do look fab! And they’re small enough to pop into your bag and take out and about with you – a REAL planner for the sewing lover!
You can check out the different versions of these seasonal sewing planners – and FYI: they make fabulous Christmas gifts!
Sewing Planners – Are They Worth The Money?
I believe that planners, either the ones you buy ready printed or pdf / printable sewing planners are great for helping us find time for what we love – sewing! I know I get waaaaaay more sewing and pattern making done, if I’ve blocked out time to do it, because, I’ve made it a priority for me. It my ‘scheduled’ me time. So yeah. I think having a sewing planner around you at all times of the year is totally worth which is why I incorporated sewing plans into an actual year planner. Boom shackalacka!
Let me know in the comments below whether:
- You have or have used a sewing planner (it doesn’t have to be mine!)
- What aspect of the sewing planner you loved?
- What aspect you hated!
I’m going to be adding a couple new pages to the planner in the spring – yep, I scheduled that into my planner! 😉 – and if there’s something missing you feel should be there, let me know!
Til next time…
