Make & Mend is extended through August!!
Happy July everyone!
Turns out this month is going to be a scary tight one money wise for me. More so than oh...all year. Ha! It got me thinking, in a sad attempt by me to do anything awesome, perhaps its a good time to start a sew-along.
The theme is Make & Mend. The guidelines are as follows:
*Use fabric you already have for any new project.
*Alter a current pattern for a new garment.
*Repair/Mend 3 things from your ‘fix’ pile.
*Repurpose at least one piece of fabric.
*Make something for someone else.
That's it! Simple enough, right? I invite everyone to join me! Get creative, invite all your sewing friends and spread the word! I'd love to see blogs a fire with awesome stuff! I've also created a flickr group so you can post pictures of works in progress and the like. If you are interested in participating, reply to this post and/or place the banner on your blog. Let's inspire each other!
