If you’re a sewist and you don’t know the website Pattern Review, you’re missing out on a real gold mine! Although it’s enabling my patterns & fabric addiction, this online community has probably saved me from numerous sewing disasters, thanks to the wonderful reviews from the users.
Since I’m not the only patterns addict on that site, a Pattern stash reduction contest has been organized. The goal: sew as many garments as possible from un-used patterns, within the given time limits. This is the first contest I’m participating in, but I’m not in for the title. As I explained in my previous posting, I want to make a SWAP for the spring/summer. I thought that if I try out new patterns for my SWAP, I could enter these garments in the contest as well… still following me? That’s what I call killing 2 birds with 1 stone!
Stay tuned, at the end of the day I’ll post my creations for this weekend!
