Happy Monday everyone! I got a question last week about how this whole Zakka Style Sew Along started.
I’ve been following Mrs. Lindsey’s blog: LR Stitched for a while now. . and when she talked about doing a sew along in February for the book, I just couldn’t let that idea go. I mean, I was grocery shopping and thinking, Zakka Zakka Zakka! I contacted Lindsey and Rashida. (after the shopping – girl’s gotta eat!) we brain stormed this idea of a sew-along but showcasing a blogger and their work each week. Then we thought. . 24 weeks of projects, how do we keep readers interested for that long? Prizes!!! That’s how this whole crzy, awesome sew along started. It’s been nuts organizing. . but good.
Did you get your copy of the Zakka Style book??? I hope we’ve got you excited enough to join along.
As mentioned above each week we’re raffling off a prize for the prior’s week’s project. That’s right 24 weeks of giveaways! Who doesn’t want a chance at that.
After 6 projects/weeks go by we’ll draw another for a bigger prize. So don’t be discouraged about getting the project done every week just jump in when you can, because your name will be in the hat for the quarterly prize pack. Link up parties will be on Lindsey’s blog. Plus she’s got all the details of times, etc (oh and she explains the rules way better than me)
This week’s prize is brought to you by: Timeless Treasures. It’s a whole fat quarter bundle of Washi fabric:
This week’s project is by Mrs. Terri aka Sew Fantastic. She’s got the most adorable Zig Zag tote on her blog!!!
Now we’re not going to show step-by-step how to do the projects but tips n’ tricks. Also if you have any questions, feel free to post them in the Flickr group, comment on the blogger’s post, or ask anyone of us. We’re more than happy to help.
Since the hubby’s going on a small business trip for 4 days, I’ll be sewing like a mad woman. . . and fit in some spring cleaning. But really who wants to clean when you can sew a cute tote.
