After going on a FABULOUS fabric shopping trip with some of our fellow sewing blogs Flamingo Toes Bev and I decided we didn’t sew enough wearables for ourselves. We decided to challenge ourselves to sew at least one new item each month.
And bonus points if we actually use something from our stash but you know fabric addicts gotta buy new fabric some times right ;) And that’s how the Sew Our Stash challenge was born. See pictures of my fabric “problem” AKA all the places I keep fabric around the house in the very first Sew Our Stash post!
We would love you to join our challenge. It’s SUPER easy to join along. There are lots of ways to join, you can do all of them or just a few.
- Sew at least 1 new thing for yourself each month.
- Check in on the FIRST THURSDAY of every month. That’s when we post what we made. We’d love you to comment and let us know what you made this month too!
- If you have a blog or social media account you are welcome to join in posting what you made. It can be on the first Thursday or ANYTIME you have a picture to share. We love using #sewourstash on our pictures so everyone else can see and more people can join in on the fun. (Bev and I also LOOOOOOOVE seeing your creations and have been known feature them too!)
- Use #sewourstash when you share your pictures of your fabric stash, what you’re sewing for yourself, or whenever you wear the awesome things you made for yourself!
See all my past Sew Our Stash posts below and see all of Bev’s here.
I know that I love and wear the things that I have made for myself from this challenge all the time. I love sharing my pictures on my Instagram.Whether you want to join in publicly or just do it for yourself we would love to have you.
Let’s connect! You can also find me hanging out here.
