Are you looking for the best sewing planner to help you plan your 2019 sewing projects?

Perhaps you find yourself running out of time each week, because of work, and life, and wish you had a sewing planner that helped you squeeze more sewing time into your life?

I understand how you feel, because I too have times when work and day to day life is just so overwhelming, and I have not time for sewing all the projects I have planned!

The Best Sewing Planner

For this reason, I created the best sewing planner – You’re Sew On It!

You can buy the undated version here as a paper sewing planner on Amazon, or the 2019 printable sewing planner here!

It is a planner that has received great reviews, helping those who sew to:

  1. Plan their sewing projects using the wardrobe planner template
  2. Include their sewing project tasks alongside their daily work / life tasks
  3. Keep track of their fabric stash with the fabric stash pages

Using The Best Sewing Planner In 2019

I do get the odd question on how best to use the sewing planner, as it isn’t like the traditional sewing planners you find, that usually only have space for sewing project info.

This best sewing planner actually helps you to plan out which projects are a priority, and then include the various tasks in your weekly schedule, so that you can go into each week knowing that you have dedicated sewing time for those sewing projects. Win!

Now, for those of you who need a helping hand on how to best use it, here is a video I made for the 2018 version.

I am currently away until mid January 2019, so once back, I’ll record a newer, up to date (and shorter) video on how to use the 2019 version, which has design templates, and project planning pages included too!

How The Sewing Planner Works

While it is true that the 2019 sewing planner isn’t your typical sewing planner, I did design and create 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.

The sewing planner 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! 🙂

2019 Sewing Planner – Do I Really Need One?

I believe that sewing planners – either the ones you buy ready printed from online like this one on Amazon or the downloadable PDF / printable sewing planners – are honestly just great for helping you and I find time for what we love – sewing!

I know that 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’s my ‘scheduled’ me time. And because I didn’t use my sewing planner in 2018, I only completed two sewing projects. Just two.

So yes. 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 one year planner. Boom shackalacka!

Let me know in the comments below whether:

  1. You have or have used a sewing planner (it doesn’t have to be mine!)
  2. What aspect of the sewing planner you loved?
  3. What aspect you hated!

In August 2019 I’ll be updating the sewing planner again to make sure it is always the best sewing planner. If you feel there is something missing, do let me know!

Til next time…

    What sizes are the forms/binders – I am looking for 8 1/2 x 11 “. And does the binder have 3 rings so I can add more – your forms or my forms and/or notes.i have been looking for a sewing planner for years and I feel blessed that I found you on You Tube. Please forgive me if the sizes are in plain view. Thanks so much for what you do!

      Hi Linda! The version on Amazon is more like a soft back book and is 20.3 x 1.3 x 25.4 cm. I think that works out to be 8 x 10″, so slightly smaller than your 8.5 x11. I do find that it is smaller than A4/Letter size so can be carried around in my bag easily enough. This version on Etsy is printed at home on A4 or letter paper, and you can hole punch it to suit your needs.
      I’m also working on a seasonal sewing planner that will be smaller, with more focus on creating clothes for the season. 🙂

    Hi Eve, wow you’ve made a very thoughtful resource, I’m glad I watched the video! One of my goals is to get better at judging how much time I will need for creative projects of different types (sewing, writing, diy house projects), and I think the tools in your planner will be a great way to experiment and practice breaking things down ahead of time. I’d like to print it out in the US–is there a letter sized version available? Is it possible to print an undated version? Many thanks!
