A quick heads up on some sewing related happenings in November...
||Spoonflower is organising two sewing days for those in the U.S. to support Softies for Mirabel. Spoonflower will have everything you need on hand to whip up some favourite cut-and-sew plushie patterns. Check out the details for sending in handmade toys as well.|
|Sewing Pillowcases & Puppets is the current sew-along to help others, over at Hopeful Threads. You can join Kristy sewing for her local children's hospital. Project runs till the end of November.|
||Boy, Oh Boy, Oh Boy is hosting a Mother - Son Sewing Series, running from November 10th - 14th. Join in by sewing your own mother - son creations.|
||Pimp Your Swimmers Contest - Take any element of the BOO! Design Your Own Swimmers and alter it in some way; add frills, appliqués, mash with elements from other patterns or your imagination. Open to Australian residents (not ACT)|
||The Handmade Holidays series, over at Sew Mama Sew, gives you lots of tutorials, printables and recipes to help you create a Handmade Holiday for every loved one on your list.|
ONGOING charity projects
| ||The Fluff Project is all about making stuffed toys for children in foster care. What started as a monthly project, co-ordinated by Kristy, from Hopeful Threads, has now turned into an ongoing drive. |
||Days for Girls International: Feminine Hygiene Program... Every Girl. Everywhere. Period. Veronica, at SewVery, brought this one to my attention. Such easy projects we can sew to help these girls retain their dignity.|
I imagine there'll be lots of festive season sewing happening during November. Time for me to make a start I think. What do you have planned for November?
I'm planning on getting most of my Christmas sewing finished this month - I'm doing fairly well on my list, so I think it's doable. I also want to check out the Mother/Son sewing series - I have lots of boys to sew for so I'd love to find something new and fun to make for them :DReplyDelete
