In Sewing

Colette Handbook Sew-along!

I bought the Colette Sewing Handbook last month and I’ve been really excited to get started on some of the projects. Now I’m even MORE excited because Colette announced a Sew-along hosted by Sarah and Erin! We’ll be working through the entire book over the course of five months and posting pictures to the flickr group along the way.

I’m so excited!! Did I mention that yet? I’ve never done a sew-along before, but it seems like such a great way to stay motivated and really see a project to the very end. Which is something I struggle to do sometimes when it comes to sewing for myself. Plus, it’s kind of mind blowing to think that by the end of MAY I’ll have 5 new garments to wear! I’m really hoping to make some new blog friends during the process as well, which will make two of my new year’s goals (make new blog friends, and sew more of my own clothes) accomplished. Yay!

It’s not too late to get started if you want to join up!! But hurry, the first task for this month is due on the 12th.

I’ll be sure to post pics here, and also on my flickr as I work through the book.

Can’t wait!
