Sewing 101

Pickup Some Creativity will be hosting Sewing 101 next week. Always wanted to learn to sew? Go check it out. You can also find my series about learning to sew clothes here.

Lil Blue Boo has another great contest. "Turn a dull pile of knits into something amazing! You can sew them, knit them, tie them, glue them. You can make a toy, clothing, accessories….whatever you are inspired by! This challenge is wide open. Dye them, paint them, bead them or just rely on their raw ugly beauty. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? What are knits? t-shirts, sweaters, jersey material, sweatshirts etc. Send me your before and after photos by midnight July 15th "

Brown Paper Packages has a new monthly project called Operation: Pay It Forward. 

Anna Maria Horner is collecting quilt squares to make quilts for families in TN who lost their homes. Are you dying to get rid of scraps? This project may be for you!

Craft Hope Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a timeAnd, of course, Craft Hope always has a project going on. You still have a little time to make wash cloths to send to the gulf to aid in animal rescue efforts! A great project to work on with children!


Samster Mommy Tutu Drive

Samster Mommy is collecting new, handmade tutus & super hero costumes for the Alexa Foundation to donate to little girls and boys with cancer. What a great idea!

Know of any other sewing projects going on right now? Please share them with me!

Stay tuned for a fun new Sew Along here in August! It will be perfect, even for beginners!

    I so don’t get Twitter and that’s because immediately after creating an account a few years back I never went any further with it. The strange thing is occasionally I get an email alert saying someone is following me and I have never, not once, posted a single word to Twitter! Like I need another addiction anyway.
    I love the idea of the tutu drive. I may just have to battle with some netting soon.
