August’s Sewing Challenges
The calendar says August, it’s been feeling more like late September lately. We’ll see what August brings. Hopefully no snow! :)
August’s Monthly Challenge
Create a highly detailed quilted potholder, jeans with lots of topstitching and extra pockets, a dress with yards of hand stitched ruffles. Carefully match your threads to fabrics, use those size tags and decorative labels. Use the iron. No, really. Put a lot more effort into something than you normally would. (And when you’re done, pat yourself on the back and stand in the glow of your awesomeness!)
And, to balance the unnecessarily complicated with something that is intended to be less complicated:
August’s Christmas Challenge
Create some holiday or winter themed potholders. Or just one, if you’d prefer. I really need to complete this challenge because this is what’s currently in my kitchen drawer:
And those are recently laundered, yikes! I’m fairly certain at least a couple are older than my eldest child, who is a high school senior.
If you don’t celebrate Christmas, perhaps you have another holiday where food is eaten and pans are hot? Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or a celebration of the Winter Solstice? Or feel free to create with a more generic winter theme. Unless you are planning to hibernate this winter, it’s a good bet that you’ll be eating at some point!
Once you’re done creating, don’t forget to share your projects on our Runway!
