#sewmyprecious Sew Along

2020 has been a tough year so far… and the one thing that helps us cope with the uncertainty around us, is sewing!

I thought it was time we got that beautiful fabric OFF the shelf and into some beautiful projects!

That can be shared with loved ones, used, snuggled under or worn….. I am always so happy when I see some precious fabrics that I have been hoarding used in a project… the finished project gives me so much more joy than a stack of fabric! (and I get a great deal of joy out of stacks of fabric!!)

This sewalong is a little different in that it is likely we won’t be using the same fabrics or even the same pattern!

YOU choose which of your gorgeous fabrics you want to open up and use and YOU choose which pattern you want to make with them.

Use the #sewmyprecious on Instagram or post your progress in our Facebook Group to let us know what you are going to sew with!

And if you need assistance working out a pattern to use, just get in touch… I’ll be posting some suggestions for you over the next week or so.

I have been pottering along making Cross Plus blocks with my Tula Pink stash when I can. This sewalong is very relaxed.... it is a long haul project not a quick bang ; ) so I haven't been stressing to make a certain number of blocks by a certain time…
