Hey guys!
How about a board where you can start a new project and keep everything on your topic up to date?
I mean, I want to start 2 big sewing projects right now.
I would love to make a topic, where I could put everything I need to do them and share it with the Craftster's community, instead of doing it in a boring Word document. Tongue
We could ask some suggestion and help here too, but the main point would be to show your work in progress and get some advice.

- I don't know if the board Discussions and Questions about Clothing or Sewing has this goal, but I think it doesn't perfectly suits what I would like to do.  Huh

Example of a topic:

Title : Winter Lolita Coat [ 10% done ]

- Inspiration :  x

- [Why do I want to make this ~]

- Pattern in use : Burda 7857

- Material needed :
 ♥ Wool fabric [ ____ yards ]
 ♥ Ribbons
 ♥ Faux-fur [ ____ yards ]

- Steps:
1. Bring all the materials Done!
2. Cut the Pattern
3. Cut the fabric
4. And so on...

And people could give their opinions, comments, and criticisms. Tongue

What do you think?

By the time you are finished with the project, wouldn't you want to post it on a Completed Projects board, though?  Then it would end up being a duplicate project/thread. Undecided

The Craftalongs board http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=188.0 is a really good place for stuff like this.  The threads are shared by many members to support and encourage each other working on the same project/pattern.

Ohh, I didn't think of the duplicated thread.  Shocked
But I doubt that someone would be interested in doing a winter coat, since it's pretty costy... Anyway, we'll see!!  Cheesy

I love this idea!

What if, once you've completed your project, the thread gets moved to the appropriate Completed Projects board?  Then you wouldn't have duplicates.
