As a crafter, I have an account on Ravelry.com: knittergirl39 (you can add me if you wish to). I know you can keep your projects on there but sometimes I like to keep track of things on paper. Sometimes it’s easier to have with the pattern right next to it. Or if I’m thinking of a design in my mind and want to sketch it out, well you really can’t sketch it out on Ravelry. That is why I created my Craft Project Planner pages:
I created this form to track the following items:
- what type of project it is
- if I have somebody in mind who I’m planning on making it for
- simple name to give it
- a section for materials that I have and materials that I need to get
- a started and finished date
- pattern name if following a pattern
- the size that is being made
- a section for materials – both what I already have and what
I need to purchase
- a section to draft out a sketch you want the item to look
- a section to take notes of your progress, changes to pattern, where you left off, etc.
I designed it to fit into my planner which uses half-letter sized sheets.
I can use this while I’m working on the project and then transfer it to Ravelry later if I want to.
So whether I’m sewing, knitting, or crocheting I can do a simple drawing to get an idea of how I want it to look, add some measurements, use it as a shopping list and a way to track my progress.
You could create one like this in Word, Excel or even just by hand on a piece of paper. If you are interested in using my Craft Project Planner page, follow this link to my Etsy shop.
