If you have hung around my blog or known me for very long, you will likely have heard me say or write on several occasions that I do *not* sew 3D items; I’m a one trick pony; I’m a quilter and not a bag maker. Well… that’s about to change. <GULP>
My good friends Stephanie from Late Night Quilter & The Quilter’s Planner and Kitty from Night Quilter are organizing a sew along to benefit Sadie’s Dream for a Cure. The sew along requires the construction of a Busy Bag, and the cause speaks to me in a way that I am going to overlook my (enormous) fear and give making a bag a try. If you would like to join me, please get all the details for the Busy Bag Sew Along from The Quilter’s Planner website.
Busy Bag Sew Along Schedule
May 1st – Busy Bag Sew Along Kick-off!
May 1-7 – Order your labels, download the pattern, and gather your materials <– Will you join us?
May 8-14 – Cut and fuse
May 15-21 – Sew the bag together!
May 22-28 – Fill if desired and mail back to Sadie’s Dream
Before May 31st – Tell us how many bags you have made and mailed so that we can add it to our tally and hopefully fly past our 25 bag goal!
How committed am I? I have ordered my label from Sadie’s Dream for a Cure, and I was able to acquire my materials from my local quilt shop already! Wish me luck; I think I might need it!
