SewingRoom SewAlong………

Who wants to SewAlong with me ???  I am doing this project with my quilting group so I thought maybe my 6 readers would like to do it too ?
We are making items for our SewingRooms….all those little things we always wanted to make…pincushions, sewing machine covers, needle case, etc…. but never got around to doing, well now's the time!
Each month has a theme…on that month I will post links for FREE patterns in the net for that theme!  You pick whichever  pattern you like ( you might even have a pattern at home you have been wanting to do but lacked the motivation…that's why I’m here…to motivate you ). You make the item…you can send me a picture and I will post it or I can post a link to your blog …At the end of the year you will have all those things you need for your SewingRoom.

Here is the planned Sewing calendar…..
  • Jan – Armchair / Couch Caddy 
  • Feb – Sewing Bag / Tote
  • March – Tidy Totes / Thread Catchers
  • April - Pincushion
  • May – Sewing Machine Cover
  • June – Thread Case
  • July – Scissor etui
  • August – Needle case
  • Sept – Sewing Case
  • Oct – Thimble Holder
  • Nov – Tape Measure Cover
  • Dec – Done!!! …we need time to get ready for Christmas.
Here's the deal…every 6th of the month I will post the links…you pick one…sew it …let me know you did it and I’ll toss your name in a hat…at the end of the year  I will pick a name and you will win a prize!!
If you post my SewingRoom  Sewalong Button on your blog I will toss your name into the hat again…( please let me know you did so)
…if you become a follower your name goes into the hat too. (current Followers, let me know you are doing the SewAlong and I will toss your name in the hat)
…this means by the end of the year you could have 13 chances ( if you make more then one of the items…your name will go in the hat for each item you made.)…great way to make some gifts and get more chances…either way you win!
I’ll be back on Friday with the first links…hope you can join me !
P.S: If you have a Free Pattern / Tutorial on your Blog …please let me know and I will post !


  1. Hello Liz
    that sound very interesting ;-)
    I will join in

  2. Hi Liz, as I'm outing myself being one of your six readers and I'll join in.
    Hugs Katja

  3. Hey Liz.... LOL! Must be the year for trying to motivate... I won't join in cuz I've just got too much on my plate... and, er... well, I've kinda got a thing going on that I'll be posting on my blog (hopefully today)... not quite as sophisticated as yours, but something to motivate myself and my sis... but, I don't mind adding your button to my blog... so if that's okay, that's what I'll do... Hugs.

  28. Hallo Liz
    Das finde ich eine super tolle Idee und für mein Nähzimmer könnte ich noch einiges an Untensilien gebrauchen. Trotz meinen wenigen englisch Kenntissen hoffe ich, dass alles klappt. Den Button werde ich auf meiner Seite verlinken.
