Sounds like I’m announcing a new BMW purchase.
I’m still rolling in my Honda Accord but wanted to share 6 different sewing series happening in May….
FREE PATTERN MONTH on Grosgrain.
Every day of the month a new guest shares a free sewing pattern. Score! I’m in love with those Knot Shorts (below) by Elsie Marley. I’ll be sharing my own pattern later in the month.
COLOR YOUR SUMMER with Delia Creates and Kojo Designs.
I’m so ready to dive into summer–and you know I like celebrating color!–so I’m very excited about this series. It’s a month filled with colorful tutorials on two blogs. I’ll be sharing a Rainbow tutorial on Delia Creates this coming week!
Ellen at the Long Thread is hosting guests all month long. They’ll share wedding ideas, kids crafts, baby stuff, and knock-off tutorials. I’ll be popping in at some point during the month.
SPRING TOP WEEK on Made by Rae.
Spring is here! It’s time sew some tops for you, right? This is the third year Rae’s hosting her popular competition–you make a shirt, enter it in the flickr group, and see who wins! (all the rules are HERE). I’ll be on the judging panel and can’t wait to see what you guys make!
KIDS CLOTHES WEEK CHALLENGE on Elsie Marley
Take the challenge! For one week, commit to sewing for just an hour a day…to sew clothes for your kids! Read more about it HERE. And then upload your pics to the flickr group. There’s so much cool stuff in there to inspire you.
