We have some beautiful projects to make this month, are you sewing along with us??? This whole year we're sewing up the projects in Just For You, the book that Sarah Markos and I compiled with projects from our favorite bloggers. Join our Sewlebrity Sewalong facebook group to share your pictures with us and get lots of selfish sewing inspiration.
Sew any project from Just For You this month, and I'll share your picture in my fan projects blog post at the end of the month, you'll get a 'Sewlebrity' button, AND you'll be entered to win one of the actual projects that we sent to the publisher to be photographed for the book.
We have two amazing 'Sewlebrities' who will make the projects too, and share their ideas. So here are the June projects...
First up is the Boho Maxi Dress. This dress is a summer staple that can be worn so many ways. We made it in black gauze fabric to keep it cool and flowy. It would be beautiful in cotton lawn or voile too.
The bodice portion is shirred with elastic thread. Never tried that before? No worries, Just For You has clear instructions with pictures. :)
This dress was designed by Claudia Almandoz. We fell in love with the photos of the original dress that she sent us.
Try out jewelry making with our other project this month, a necklace made with fabric and beads. Do you already have a stash of jewelry supplies? I must confess that I've had them for a long time. The fabric flower is actually a corsage that can be worn with the necklace or separately.
This project was designed by Sachiko Aldous of the blog Tea Rose Home. Her original necklace was so lovely.
And our Fabric Covered Beads Necklace is the item that we're giving away at the end of June . Sarah and I agree that while big, easy to enter giveaways are fun, we'd like to share this project with someone we've gotten to know a bit through the sewalong. So we're going to choose the winner among everyone who joins in. Sew anything from Just For You this month and share a picture in our facebook group by the end of the month and it might be you!
So what are you waiting for... come by the group and say hello!
