This is the final two week slot of this sew-along (Meetup only allows us to post meetings of two weeks' length). Feel free to post comments in either one.
How are you getting along with your project? Have you found a fabric you want to use, and what kind of pattern are you considering?
One of two sewalongs: Use a meter (or so) of stash fabric to make a simple item.
You could make a top, a tote bag, a skirt, a shrug, a fancy apron - or any kind of accessory: spats, hats, headbands, even knickers - the limits are your imagination! The list of possibilities goes on: you could make a more crafty item: a needle case, a padded hanger, a bag for clothes pegs, a sewing machine cover, or a tea cosy...
We probably all have rather more fabric than we know what to do with. Some have been ear-marked for a specific project, others haven't quite made it onto that list of planned items but slipped to the back of the shelf instead.
Why not use up a length of material that's been lying around for a while?
It would be lovely if everyone with a good idea for a specific project could post notes on the pattern they plan to use, or post a link to a blog post (we have a LDC members blog!) where you could describe how to make the pattern for a simple item.
A few examples of things we made before:
This sewalong should run for two months although Meetup only allows us to post meetings that last two weeks at most. I will schedule the two weeks at the beginning of the sewalong and then a second slot of two weeks at the end of the two months (this one).
That way more people can join this later and may find a refreshed interest when the second slot is in the diary.
What are your ideas? Please share.
