G E T S E T S E W September is upon us!!
Its a double whammy this month - conscious that we have busy and strange times with the return to work and school for many, its a pick and mix month which you can make as small or as large as you like...
Option 1: UFO challenge: In sewing speak a UFO is an unfinished object! I have a few, some of you are completer/finishers and so don't have a pile (I wish!!), many of you will have a LOT because like me you have shiny new object syndrome and get sidetracked by the new ideas.... (autobiography LOL) Choose ONE and commit to finish it this month. I will post a pic of mine soon! If you haven't got a pile but you are a serial buyer of fabrics and patterns that you never get round to actually making.... then this also applies. Clear some space by reducing the pile!
Option 2: Remnant Challenge: Use an off cut from a previous project to make something practical! OR treat yourself to a reduced price remnant from a fabric shop, choose something that appeals to you or challenges you and if you feel scared of it but you have an idea for it BUY IT. We've got your back... Post a pic in Kernow Sewcial and ask advice if you are at all unsure how to handle it or what to make.... or tag me on your social platform @starttostitch
You do NOT have to take part in these challenges, they're just prompts to keep us going, but if you fancy it, give it a go!
And to be clear - you don't have to make clothes, this could be ANY THING.... are you ready?
Get, set, SEW!!
Sewing. pattern cutting, teaching, tea and Jelly Babies!
