#getesetsewnovember - Sew Cosy
Well autumn has well and truly arrived here in the northern hemisphere The eveings are getting darker, Its starting to get a bit stormy, and there is a distinct chill in the air. And with November arriving in style with a huge storm here in Cornwall, we thought it was the perfect timing for a #getsetsew challenge. to warm you up a bit. And for those in the sourthern hemisphere, summer maybe on it's way, but there may be an odd chilly evening still so there will be something for yoy here too!
The #getsetsewnovemeber challenge is..................Sew Cosy!
Oh goodness where to start with this one! There are so many choices and ways to go with this challenge, it is wide open. Anything from cardigans, to jackets, to sweaters, to sweatshirts to joggers, to gilets, all the way though to scarves, gloves, mittens, hats and even slippers.
You could make a warming wheat bag pillow (check out this free pattern from The Sewing Directory), a wearable blanket (think an Oodie) like this free pattern. Or even a onsie (remember the really cosy one I made last year? you can find the pattern here)
Or how about some cosy pyjamas? there are some great free patterns for pyjama bottoms that can bee teamed up with a t-shirt for long sleeved top pattern that you may already have in your stash. Patterns for Pirates have some grat adult and child free pyjama bottoms patterns: Walk the Plank Adult PJ bottoms and Youth PJ bottoms
Ever though of making a quillow? That's a quilt that folds into a pillow, they are great fun and make great gifts too! There are lots of quillow ideas and tutorials that will appear as if by magic, well with a google search actually!!.
And remember this #getsetsew challenge isn't limited just to just garment sewists, you can knit, crochet, quilt, patchwork, anything as long as the them of the item is 'cosy'.
