Happy Homemade Sew-along // elsie marley and you & mie

We’re getting sooooo close!  This is the last post before the sew-along starts, I promise!  Just wanted to let you know what the schedule was going to be for next week and give you a little bit more info about how to participate and what you might win if you do!!

So here’s the breakdown for next week . . .

Happy Homemade Sew-along: June 16-20
Day 1 (Monday): Trace pattern pieces and add seam allowance
Day 2 (Tuesday): Cut out fabric and prepare
Day 3 (Wednesday): Sew sleeves and hood
Day 4 (Thursday): Attach hood
Day 5 (Friday): Finish!

Meg and I are going to be switching back and forth with our posts.  I’m going to be covering days 1, 3, and 5 and Meg will be doing days 2 and 4.  But don’t worry, it won’t be confusing!  Come to either blog each day and we’ll tell you exactly where to find the information you’re looking for!

How to participate:
  • Sew with us or at your own pace
  • Share any in progress pictures on Instagram (#happyhomemadesewalong) or the Flickr group
  • If you have any questions, leave us comments and we’ll try to get back to you as soon as possible
  • Photograph your finished pull-over and add it to the Flickr group!
Sharing your finished pull-over:
You can add photos to the Flickr group at anytime, but if you’d like your picture included in our round-up or entered into our sew-along prize giveaway, be sure to do so by end of the day, Monday, June 23.  That way you have the weekend to finish up and photograph your pull-over!  *Please only upload photos that you are comfortable with us sharing on our blogs.*
And, of course, the prize!
One sew-along participant will be randomly selected from the Flickr pool to win an AWESOME prize package!
Happy Homemade Sew-along GIVEAWAY!
$30 gift certificate to Miss Matatabi
$30 gift certificate to Girl Charlee
2 yards of fabric from Imagine Gnats
AND . . . 
Secret gifts from Meg and Cherie!

RIGHT!??  Ok, I hope you’re pumped!  I know some people are still waiting for their books to arrive, others still need to go fabric shopping.  You still have a few days to gather your stuff, wash and dry your fabric, and clear your schedule and sewing space!
See you on Monday!

    • Oh Natasha – I’m so sorry!! You’re right, I did say the 30th. Eek! That was on our original schedule, but then we ended up shifting the dates earlier and I forgot to change that one. Darn! I’m so sorry!!!
