Happy Canada Day!
Saila is modeling the hoodie that will be in the free pattern tomorrow if you get your entries in on time! Please do not email me asking to bend the rules just for you. It is a slippery slope, and if I do it for you then I have to do it for everyone else, and it’s not fair to the people that followed the directions. About 60 people so far were able to successfully put pictures onto Flickr and submit those links correctly in the form…so yes, it CAN be done!
Once you’ve finished with everything, make sure all your photos are in the group here.
And then go here to submit all your links at once.
- Yes, you can just put one link if you put all your items in one pic!
- Yes, it’s fine to have a friend/family member post your pic for you from their account and put it in the group, just make sure to ask them for the links to your work to submit with your email address.
- There are a few people who submitted only their email address but no links to any pictures. If you did that, you will NOT be on the list, so make sure to put in a link to your pictures!
The pattern for week 5 and a bonus pattern will be emailed to you on Thursday, so you need to submit your entry by the evening of July 1st. I’ll compile the list and send out the new patterns July 2nd in the morning as soon as I’ve had enough tea to feel awake and able to complete that task 🙂
Hoodie from above resized for Paola Reina
If you have been on vacation or for some other reason could not participate, you can get all of the patterns including week five and the bonus dress pattern right now on Etsy!
I wanted to share some clever things people have done and a few of the many color combos I like:
DorrieBelle is using Disney princess dolls. I always see them at Target and want to get one and then think, “What could I sew for them besides princess dresses?” Modern clothes, it turns out!
Kelly turned the boatneck top into a super cute jacket!
Rosetownjoy resized for her sweet little Tonner Sophie
Penny used really unique fabric to make a beach coverup
Grandmaknits reused a child’s dress and turned the boatneck top into a dress!
Melangel’s clever fabric placement made a neat top for Clem!
slpslee chose a really cute mix of fabrics for her doll!
As did NurseEeyore
This one from quickdrawannie coordinates not only with itself but its surroundings too. Using the same color for tank and skirt here makes it look like a dress.
Pink looks good on most dolls, but orange can be a tricky color to use successfully. KB did a very nice job of that!
Ok, it’s summer, but sewbig’s dolls are ready for fall in this elegant combination! (boy’s shirt pattern free here)
I like the nautical feel of Silke’s combo here
and the very summery feel of Reagie’s
[If your photo is shown here and for some reason you don’t want it to be, just let me know and I’ll take it down!]
Thanks to everyone who participated in the sew along and get your links in by tonight!!
